Stress Management for Women!   This is absolutely wonderful!!!!
     
A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading  and explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of  water. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'half  empty or half full?'... She fooled them all .... "How heavy is this glass  of water?" she inquired with a smile. Answers called out ranged from 8 oz.  To 20 oz. She replied , "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It  depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a  problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right  arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance. In  each case it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it  becomes." She continued, "and that's the way it is with stress. If we  carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes  increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on." "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 practiced. 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.

1 * Accept  the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the  statue!
2 * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you  have to eat them.
3 * Always read stuff that will make you look  good if you die in the middle of it.
4 * Drive carefully... It's  not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.
5 * If you can't  be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
6 * If you lend  someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth  it.
7 * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve  as a warning to others.
8 * Never buy a car you can't  push.
9 * Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time,  because then you won't have a leg to stand on.
10 * Nobody cares if  you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
11 * Since it's the  early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
12 * The second  mouse gets the cheese.
13 * When everything's coming your way,  you're in the wrong lane.
14 * Birthdays are good for you. The more  you have, the longer you live.
16 * Some mistakes are too much fun  to make only once.
17 * We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are  sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all  are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
18  * A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a  detour.
19 * Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought  about you today.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY
20 *Save the  earth..... It's the only planet with chocolate!*
