Hva ferie egentlig er

Det blir mye engelsk naa, men saann er det naar jeg er her i USA sammen med soestra mi og vi skifter spraak ca. annenhver setning... noen ganger kommer det bare feil spraak ut...

Fant dette paa vertsmora mi sin blogg, og synes det var en god illustrasjon paa turen min her. Snart er jeg klar til aa ta fatt paa oppgavene igjen!

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience,raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass ofwater?"Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It dependson how long you try to hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not aproblem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If Ihold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance. In each case, it'sthe same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."
He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management.If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burdenbecomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on. As withthe glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest beforeholding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with theburden.""
So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down.Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdensyou're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can."So, my friend, why not take a while to just simply RELAX. Put downanything that may be a burden to you right now. Don't pick it up againuntil after you've rested a while.

  1. Thanx! for the comments on burdens. That's good for all of us to know and to work on. Some burdens you just can't carry very long.

    I love you, my wonderful granddaughter in Norway!
