Pause Button

by Tom Swift

There is no problem that cannot be dropped, if only for a moment.

It is the holding onto things that weighs one down.

Think of your kettlebells. The longer you hold them, the heavier they feel. Their weight does not at any point change; it’s the amount of effort you have to expend to keep them aloft that does.

The longer you grip a handle the harder you must squeeze.

Let go. You can pick it up — whatever the problem — again. And when you do, it will be at least a little easier.
