Chinese language study HK – Happiness is a journey

Mandarin Lesson

Happiness is a journey

We always convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, than another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren’t old enough and we’ll be more content when they are. After that we’re frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.

We always tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together. When we get a nice car, and are able to go on a nice vocation when we retire. The truth is, there’s no better time than right now. If not now, when? Our life will always be filled with challenges. It’s best to admit this to ourselves and decide to be happy anyway.

 

幸福是個過程

我們總是說服自己,認為當我們結婚、生子後日子會過的更加舒心些。然後我們又被那些小鬼的不懂事搞得不順心,當他們大了些後,情況會好些吧。當孩子到了青春期的時候,(有時)對於如何跟他們好好交流又會使我們很無措。我們都深信當他們過了那個年齡段後,事情就會有些轉機。

我們總是對自己說,當另一半有條理的過活時,(我們的)人生就會很圓滿。當我們買了一台漂亮的車子後,我們認為可以在年老退休後開去度假。可事實上,再也沒有比當下更好的時間段了,要不是現在這時,那麼還能是什麼時候呢?我們的人生滿是各種神奇的未知數。不管怎麼說,對你我而言,最好是承認活在當下里的意義然後及時“自己給自己找樂”。
