A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz 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, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down.
And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.

But am extremely pleased with my new car. Just hope my old one goes to a good home! I’m trying not to think about it too much…tears were shed before I left to take it to the garage. The realisation after I emptied it was a bit too much!
Saying goodbye to my car tomorrow and feeling horrifically bad about it. Genuinely frightened about who is going to be its next owner. It’ll be such a bittersweet day tomorrow..getting a new car but leaving behind my very first one…one I never thought I would get rid of :( feeling uber guilty and currently hating myself for buying a new one.
Making a chair at uni to sell for charity. This is what we’ve made so far…still more to add to it but its looking pretty sweet.
