A young lady confidently paced around a room while leading and explaining stress management to an audience. She carried a raised glass of water, and everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question: "Half empty or half full?"
"How heavy is this glass of water?", she inquired with a smile. Her audience was perplexed. Answers were called out from around the room and ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden – holding stress longer and better each time. So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the evening and into the night. Pick them up tomorrow.
Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment. Relax, pick them up later after you've rested."
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. ~ Psalm 68:19
