Most could pick up a 1 or 2-pound weight of anything. BUT, what if we were asked to hold that 1 or 2 pound anything for a few hours or 1 day or 2 weeks or even years, could we? A better question is why would we?
Life offers us many experiences that weigh us down IF we choose to hold them in our thoughts and hearts. So, the question is how long will you choose to hold onto what is weighing you down? Choose to hold onto un-forgiveness and the weight of that choice long term affects us physically. Choose to hold onto guilt and shame and the weight of that choice held over a period of time will affect us emotionally.
