生活不能太多虑!简单生活,快乐人生。

2011-09-17

婴儿总是那么有魅力,能够瞬间的融化他人的心;没人能抗拒得了那一闪一闪的眼睛或者那纯真的笑容。他们的存在就可以让你开心,让你忘掉忧愁并融入到他们的世界中。这些年轻的小家伙为什么让我们如此着迷:是他们的纯真还是无知;是他们快乐的天性还是他们无忧的态度?1

Though I don’t have answers to the above questions, I wonder as to what makes their aura so desirable. Every adult misses their younger days, the thought, “I wish I was a kid again,” resonates with most of us. This is probably the only aspect of life where egoistic adults can leave their success, money, freedom and independence behind for just another chance. Things they might be hesitant to leave even for their loved ones are simply a no-brainer here. When you ask people if they would do it all over again, most respond with an immediate “Yes”. Physically going back in time is not an option yet, but is there anything we can learn from the young ones?

尽管我也不知道这些问题的答案,我很好奇,他们的气息为何如此吸引人。那些青春不再的成年人,大多数脑中都萦绕着这样的想法:要是能重新回到孩童时光该多好。这一点也许是唯一能让自私自利的成年人抛去成功、金钱、自由以及独立性以求新生。他们不愿放手的,即便是留给他们心爱的人,就是一份纯真无邪的做人状态。如果你问世人他们是否愿意一切重来,大多数人可能都会快速的回你:愿意!身体上回到过去目前还不现实,但我们能从年轻人那里学到什么呢?

Here are some of my ideas. What would you add?

这是我的一些想法,你有什么补充的吗?

Make Work Play

让工作就像娱乐

The only way you can catch a child’s attention is when you make things seem like play. From learning to count to getting potty trained, everything must feel like fun if you want any success. So what about ourselves? Is your work something you look forward to? If not, is there anything you can do to make it enjoyable? I personally believe that if potty training can seem like a fun activity, anything can; it’s just a matter of perception.

要想吸引孩子的注意力,唯一要做的就是让事情看起来像娱乐。从最初的如厕训练开始,如果你想要教会孩子什么事情,这件事情必须看起来非常有趣。那我们呢?你期待你的工作吗?如果答案是否定的,能做些什么让你更享受工作吗?我认为,如果如厕训练都可以变得非常有趣,那么,任何事物都可以很有趣;关键在于你怎么想怎么看。

Forgive and Forget

宽恕并遗忘

Babies can laugh and giggle all day because they don’t keep grudges against anyone. Their heart is pure and their mind empty to laugh out loud and enjoy the moment. Do you think they’ve constructed an evil plan against you because you refused them candy last time? Probably not, life moved on and so did they. So why do we hold on to our past and refuse to let go of the emotional baggage? Does it do us any good except prevent us from laughing wholeheartedly?

孩子可以一整天都保持大笑或者咯咯笑的状态,因为他们从不怨恨任何人。他们的心非常纯净,从未被任何负面情绪占据,所以他们能够开心的大笑,也能够享受生活的瞬间。你认为如果上次你没给他们糖,他们就会想出什么邪恶的计划报复你吗?答案是:很可能不会,生活在前行,他们也在前进。那我们为什么要死抓着过去不愿意丢弃那些情感垃圾呢?这么做对我们有什么好处吗?它只会让我们不能尽情开心的笑。

Depending on how you made the kid feel, there is a minute possibility that they may be hesitant to give you a hug the next time they see you. But they are more than willing to give you another chance to make things right. Don’t think candy is good for their health? That’s ok; they are willing to negotiate, are you?

你如何对待孩子,可能会影响他们下次再见到你时要不要给你个拥抱。但他们通常都愿意再给你个机会来弥补。你认为吃糖对身体不好吗?这没关系,他们愿意跟你讨价还价,你愿意吗?

Never-ending Curiosity

无止境的好奇心

Endless questions of young kids can sometimes be enough to drain the adult mind. They are always busy wondering how things work or why things are the way they are, leaving no room for boredom. Their curiosity gives them an exponential learning curve; they pick up new things quickly and are not repulsive to change.

小孩子们无止境的问题有时会让大人费尽脑汁。他们总是好奇的想知道事情怎么是这个样子的?为什么是这个样子的,也不感到无聊。好奇心让他们的学习函数呈指数变化;他们接收新事物非常快,并且从不畏惧变化。

So why does life get boring as we grow older? We all can identify times in our past where time was scarce and desires limitless, fear was unknown and rules were redefined. Then what happened? Are we so engrossed in our daily lives that we miss to see the opportunities the world still has to offer?

那为什么随着年龄的增长,生活越来越无聊了呢?提起过去那些没有时间概念、有着无尽期望、不知恐惧,没有条条框框限制的日子,想必你很能感同身受。到底发生了什么?我们是不是太过专注于自己的日常生活以致于错过了生活一直都有提供给我们的那些机会?

Unconditional Love

无条件的爱

Kids have a hug and a kiss for anyone and everyone who wants one. They don’t judge you before they come running into your knees and they don’t walk away if you don’t give them the same in return. They have no expectations from you and simply do what their heart desires. You want a hug, they’ll give you a hug, you want two, and they’ll give you two. So how did the adult world become so materialistic that we decide what we give based on what we think we might receive?

无论对谁,孩子们从不吝啬自己的拥抱和吻。他们跑向你时不会对你有任何喜好评判,如果你不给他们回应的话,他们也不会离开。他们对你没有任何期望,只是发自自己内心去做。你需要拥抱,他们就给你拥抱,如果你还需要,他们还会给。那是什么让成年人的世界变得那么现实,以致于我们根据自己可能获取的回报来决定付出什么付出多少呢?

Smile

笑一笑

Have you ever seen kids smile as they stare at thin air, and wonder what made them giggle? I have, and I’ve concluded that either they can see things that we cannot or they simply don’t need a reason to smile. If there is only one thing I could learn from them, it would be to smile more. Not only does it make you feel good, it makes people wonder what you are smiling about. They’ll come to one of two conclusions: you’re in love or you’re crazy, either ways it will make them smile.

你有没有过看到孩子们对着空气笑并好奇是什么让他们咯咯笑的时候呢?我有过,我认为原因可能有二,要么是他们看到了我们看不到的事物,要么是他们的笑是没有原因的。如果说从这一点让我明白了什么,那就是多多的笑吧。这不仅让你感觉良好,也会让人好奇你为什么会笑。他们会得出以下结论:你恋爱了,或者,你疯了,无论是什么结论都会给他人带来笑声。

Being happy and living life to the fullest is not a difficult task; you just need to have the right attitude and an open mind. Don’t envy the serene life of a baby, start living it yourself!

无论是快乐起来还是尽情的生活都不是难事儿;只要你有个端正的态度和开放的思想。不要羡慕孩子们平静祥和的生活,你应该亲身去实践!
