Sit joy Bøger Stand Up or Sit Out: Memories and Musings of a Blind Wrestler, Runner and All-around Regular Guy

Stand Up or Sit Out: Memories and Musing...

In this memoir, Anthony Candela, a self-described "all-around regular guy," traverses a lifetime of challenges. Some of these are accidents of birth, like his poor eyesight and slow trek to blindness, and some are of his own making, like choosing to compete as a scholar-athlete. Infused with lots of New Yorkana, a touch of California, and a few related historical references, this memoir conveys that in any environment, life does not always follow a prescribed course. Moreover, as humans, all of us are imperfect. This includes people with disabilities who are often thought of as transcendent beings, but who should also be regarded as "all-around regular guys." Just like the rest of the human race, they often strive imperfectly to get through life. In his descriptions, the author hopes that readers will understand a little more about the nuts and bolts of running and wrestling, not to mention skiing and scuba diving. The ups and downs of coping with life and progressive loss of eyesight and, by extraction, disability in general will be clearer. Readers will come away with a fuller appreciation of the ways people deal with challenges. In the end, we all have a choice whether to stand up or sit out. The story related in these pages will occasionally give you cause to chuckle or even shed tears of sadness or joy. Above all else, it will enlighten you about why things happen the way they do. Ultimately, this memoir increases our understanding of what it means to be truly human. Perhaps after reading it, we will be kinder and gentler to each other. Most important, perhaps we will take it a little easier on ourselves.

A Different Truth: Reject the Truths That Are Killing Your Career, and Learn to Make Choices That Are Better for You

A Different Truth: Reject the Truths Tha...

In a single day at work, how many stories run through your head? Stories about what life is like, what everyone expects of you, what you are capable of or not capable of. Some of the stories will help you move forward, but others can suck your energy dry and keep you small. We all tell ourselves stories about how life is meant to be. It’s part of being human. The stories we learned as kids and then through our life experiences; stories that became the foundations we live by, even to the detriment and harm of our health, our happiness, and our relationships. But if we are doing ourselves so much harm, can it really be the truth about life? What if there is a different truth just waiting for us to choose that would allow us to live a different life, one where we can thrive in all areas of our lives and succeed in the career we have chosen. In this refreshingly honest, lets-sit-down-and-chat guide, Joanna serves up personal stories, easy exercises, and a way to identify and work through some of the most common stories we tell ourselves in corporate life, stories that start to dictate how we feel we have to live and how we make our everyday choices. Because this was the author’s life, too. In 2014, sixteen years into her tax career, Joanna Denton went through her second burnout in five years and decided it was finally time to change her life. Since then, in her journey back from burnout, Joanna has learned to identify the stories she was telling herself, stories that kept her small and ran her into the ground. She has learned to challenge and change them, finally moving through them to a life with more joy and fulfilment (but a whole lot less tax). A life where she has control over her every day choices again. She wrote this book to share with you some techniques to do that for yourself because you are going through exactly the same thing, aren’t you? You’re staying small, running yourself into the ground, and letting those stories run your life. Deep down you know i...

Jojo Moyes - I ly for regnen

Jojo Moyes - I ly for regnen

Jojo Moyes’ debut fra 2002. En varm og livsbekræftende roman om tre generationer af kvinder, der må konfrontere fortidens hemmeligheder for at finde sig selv og hinanden. Hong Kong 1953. Da den 21-årige Joy gør sig klar til at tage til en fest i anledning af Elizabeth II’s kroning, er det ikke med den store begejstring. Hele den lille indspiste koloni af udstationerede briter vil være der, alle vil få lidt for meget at drikke, og Joys mor vil som sædvanlig have travlt med at finde en passende ægtemand til hende. Festen forløber dog ikke helt som forventet og bliver startskuddet til en længere rejse for Joy, der vil føre hende til Irland og til et liv, der er noget anderledes, end hvad hun havde drømt om. 44 år senere bliver Joys barnebarn Sabine sendt på ophold hos sine bedsteforældre i Irland, mens hendes mor, Kate, får styr på sit liv hjemme i London. Her kommer hun til et stort, koldt hus ude på landet. Det tegner virkelig til at blive et ophold i Helvede, og det er ikke svært at forstå, hvorfor Kate selv havde travlt med at komme væk derfra. Da de tre kvinder endelig bliver genforenet under samme tag, får den anspændte stemning gnisterne til at fyge, og en gammel hemmelighed, der har været dybt begravet i årtier, kommer langsomt for dagen. Pressen skriver: »I ly for regnen er lige så Jojo Moyesk som alle hendes andre bøger, perfekt læsning i hyggestolen.« – Søndag »[…] et indlysende læsevalg for dig, der elsker Jojo Moyes.« **** – Femina »[…] rar søndagslæsning.« – Bogblogger Forlag: Cicero Udgave: 1 Oplag: 1 Oplagsdato: 12-10-2017 Udg. dato: 12-10-2017 Sprog: dan Originalsprog: dan EAN: 9788763852395 Indbinding: Indbundet ISBN: 9788763852395 Sidetal: 368 Størrelse i mm (BxHxD): 154x228x36mm Vægt: 586g

FLÆSK

FLÆSK

"FLÆSK er både stærk, rørende, hudløs, velskrevet og ikke mindst uendelig modig. Den er ung, vred, talentfuld, fyldt med vidunderlige refleksioner og et mylder af tanker fra et sind i oprør." - Renée Toft Simonsen Dette er en virkelig historie om at føre et dobbeltliv. Om at være en helt almindelig, dansk gymnasieelev, om en modelkarriere, der bliver kørt i stilling, om et stærkt bånd til en kærlig mor. Men ikke alt er, hvad det ser ud som. For over det tilsyneladende perfekte, strålende ydre lægger der sig en spiseforstyrret skyggeside. Et trekantsdrama mellem 15-årige Vanessa Joy Hobbs, spejlet og vægten begynder. Hun kan ikke længere holde ud at være i sit eget kød, og hun er godt ond i sulet. Over at ikke engang de nærmeste omgivelser kan se det, hun kan se. At hun buler ud, at maven er stor som en ballon, at hun ikke er perfekt, at hun er ude af kontrol. Men jo mere hun forsøger at genvinde grebet, jo mere kaotisk bliver hendes liv. Jo mere bemægtiger sygdommen hende. Det bliver svært for Vanessa at skelne mellem virkelighed og vrangforestilling. Snart bliver hun en del af et behandlingsforløb i et hospitalssystem, hun finder så fuld af huller, at hun føler, hun ryger lige igennem. Og der er ingen kære far. Familiens trygge favn opløser sig i takt med at hendes skrig bliver højere og højere. Samtidig kæmper Vanessa for at blive i jobbet som model i en modebranche, der kun har fokus på facade og lange, slanke ben. Bogen følger Vanessa Joy Hobbs fra hun bliver syg, igennem hele behandlingsforløbet indtil tre år senere, hvor anoreksien ikke længere er livstruende, og hun er i stand til at erkende sin lidelse – en udvikling, der afspejler sig helt ned i skrivestilen. Gradvist opnår den unge pige større og større selvindsigt og kan langsomt begynde at distancere sig fra anoreksien - hendes tætteste og mest fortrolige veninde. FLÆSK er et rystende og hudløst ærligt portræt af, hvordan det er at være ung i dag, at være vred, at føle svigt, at være syg og psykisk så...
