A Translator's Daily Prayer

Lord, help me to relax about insignificant details beginning tomorrow at
7:41:23 am PST.

God help me to consider my customers feelings, even if most of them ARE

God help me to take responsibility for my own actions, even though
they're usually NOT my fault.

God, help me to not try to run everything.
But, if You need some help, please feel free to ask me!

Lord, help me to be more laid back,
and help me to do it EXACTLY right.

God, help me to take things more seriously,
especially laughter, parties, and dancing.

God, give me patience,
and I mean right NOW!

Lord, help me not be a perfectionist.
(Did I spell that correctly?)

God, help me to finish everything I sta

God, help me to do only what I can,
and trust you for the rest.
(And would you mind putting that in writing?)

Lord, keep me open to others' ideas,
WRONG though they may be.

Lord, help me be less independent.
but let me do it my way.

Lord, help me follow established procedures today.
On second thought, I'll settle for a few minutes.

Lord, help me slow down

Veramente carina

Sono qui che vago, in quei momenti di strappato relax a fine settimana, e la preghierina ci voleva proprio.

Grazie infinitamente. Ora ho capito perchè sono come sono, finalmente! È tutt'una deformazione professionale!icon_wink.gif

Sul serio: la "preghiera" è fantastica e aiuta a ridimensionare certe seccature. Grazie!

delivery notes Apr 8, 2006

Lord, teach me to be humble
(Although, oh Lord, it's hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way)

Lord, please remember to send in your PO;
This required 2 hours.
