How Heavy Is A Glass Of Water?

I recently read the following comment on the Web: “How heavy is a glass of water?” And the answer was: “That depends on how long you have to carry it. A minute is no problem, and after an hour your arm might ache. But after 24 hours you'll probably be in bad shape! In each instance the glass weighs exactly the same, but the longer you carry it the heavier it feels. It's the same with a grudge - it can get so heavy it stops you from living.”

I though it an interesting way to look at things don’t you? Sometimes we just ignore or forget all the little things, even the good things like water, that we carry around with us as baggage, (both the literal and the metaphorical type), don’t we?

We often don’t even do this consciously but rather subconsciously don’t we? So today, I wonder what unnecessary things, like grudges or anger, or even good things like a glass of water, are you carrying around unnecessarily? Or even how many glasses of water you are currently and unnecessarily carrying around today. And how much for the better, would your life be if you were to put even that or those Glasses of water down and picked up a fresh one further down the line?

Just something I am currently thinking about and didn’t want to think about it alone, so please join me, but still have a great day there.

This is true of a LOT of situations. Sometimes you have no other choice but to take the situation in parts. Sometimes taking on too much can hurt or even kill you.
