Marriage Isn’t For You

Seth Adam Smith

Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.

Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.

I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.

Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married. The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?

Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.

Read a Book Day


Read a Book Day is today.

Reading is a great lifetime hobby. It offers so many positive attributes.
It’s relaxing and therapeutic. It’s educational. Its entertaining. And, a whole lot of other good things, too.
If you have young children, or elderly people in your home, take the time to read a book to them today.
It is a wonderful time to bond with them and it creates pleasant, lasting memories.

Love is…

love is a function

This quote about the importance of communication and love is from a small paperback book I’ve had for years and years by Weiner Erhard. I used clip art from Microsoft and Paint to make this image.

The Burden of Stress

Dealing With the Burden of Stress
A Great Lesson
A young lady confidently walked around the room explaining stress management to an audience while holding up a glass of water. Everyone was thinking they knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, ‘half empty or half full?’…

a glass half full of water

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.

Something that is carried.
Something that is emotionally difficult to bear.
A source of great worry or stress; weight.
A responsibility or duty.
