当我们成年,想要如何

When I was in elementary school my parents told me it didn’t matter what I did when I grew up, so long as it made me happy.  “Happiness is the whole point of life”, my father said.  “Your mother loves to help people, so she became a nurse.  I love reading, writing and poetry, so I became an English teacher.  We both find happiness in the work we do each day.”

当我还在上小学的时候,我的父母就跟我说,当我长大的时候做什么并不重要,只要我幸福开心就好。我父亲说:“幸福是整个生活的真谛。你妈妈喜欢帮助别人,所以她做了护士。我喜欢读书、写作和诗歌,所以我当了一名英语教师。在每天的工作中,我们能品味其中的快乐。”

 

A few years later when I was in junior high, my grumpy 6th grade homeroom teacher put me in detention for “being difficult”.  She went around the classroom and asked each student what they wanted to be when they grew up.  When she got to me, I told her I wanted to be happy.  She told me I was missing the whole point of the question.  I told her she was missing the whole point of life.

几年后我升入初中,我六年级的坏脾气的导师因为我没有令她满意而让我课后留校。她在班级里四处走动,问每一个学生当他们长大了想要做什么。当她问我的时候,我告诉她我想要幸福快乐。她说我完全偏离了问题。我说她完全忽视了生活的真谛。

 

What do we all want to be when we grow up?  Happy… that is all.  Find what makes you happy and do it until you die.

当长大时,我们想要做什么呢?幸福快乐……这就是所有问题的答案。找到让你幸福快乐的事,享受工作直到离去……

 

后记:生活是复杂的。有意外发生、有账单要付、有老人要养、有孩子要育……生活又是简单的。工作的成就、父母的呵护、夫妻的帮助、子女的环绕……正是有了这么多的责任才让我们的生活多姿多彩,把责任扛在肩上,幸福快乐的生活吧。一路走下去,你会发现生活是多么美好。
