有一个人,他生前善良且热心助人,所以在他死后,升上天堂,做了天使。他当了天使后,仍时常到凡间帮助人,希望感受到幸福的味道。

一日,他遇见一个农夫,农夫的样子非常困恼,他向天使诉说︰「我家的水牛刚死了,没牠帮忙犁田,那我怎能下田作业呢?」于是天使赐他一只健壮的水牛,农夫很高兴,天使在他身上感受到幸福的味道。

又一日,他遇见一个男人,男人非常沮丧,他向天使诉说︰「我的钱被骗光了,没盘缠回乡。」于是天使给他银两做路费,男人很高兴,天使在他身上感受到幸福的味道。

又一日,他遇见一个诗人,诗人年青、英俊、有才华且富有,妻子貌美而温柔,但他却过得不快活。

天使问他︰「你不快乐吗?我能帮你吗?」诗人对天使说︰「我什么也有,只欠一样东西,你能够给我吗?」

天使回答说︰「可以。你要什么我也可以给你。」

诗人直直的望着天使︰「我要的是幸福。」

这下子把天使难倒了,天使想了想,说︰「我明白了。」

然后把诗人所拥有的都拿走。天使拿走诗人的才华,毁去他的容貌,夺去他的财产,和他妻子的性命。天使做完这些事后,便离去了。

一个月后,天使再回到诗人的身边,他那时饿得半死,衣衫褴褛地躺在地上挣扎。于是,天使把他的一切还给他。然后,又离去了。

半个月后,天使再去看看诗人。这次,诗人搂着妻子,不住向天使道谢。因为,他得到幸福了。

你曾觉得孤独?你尝过幸福的味道?

孤寂、璀璨本就是形容词,所有的形容词都是比较的。

没尝过孤寂,又怎知何谓璀璨的人生?孤寂又岂非人生之必经?

人很奇怪,每每要到失去,才懂得珍惜。其实,幸褔早就放就在你的面前。

肚子饿坏的时候,有一碗热腾腾的拉面放在你眼前,幸福。

累得半死的时候,扑上软软的床,也是幸福。

哭得要命的时候,旁边温柔的递来一张纸巾,更是幸福。

幸福本没有绝对的定义,平常一些小事也往往能撼动你的心灵,幸福与否,只在乎你的心怎么看待。

朋友,你的心,充满了幸福吗?还是,溢满了哀愁?

愉快的心情,敲你的心门时,你就该大大的开放你的心门,让愉快与你同在。

 

  • Move naturally.  “Do your own house and yard work, go up and down your stairs with your laundry, knead your own dough,” . “Incorporate more movement every hour.”
  • Know your purpose. “Take time to recognize your values, strengths, talents, passions and gifts,” . Reflect, and work on yourself.
  • Down shift. Relieve chronic stress by finding time each day to nap, meditate or pray.
  • The 80% rule. Cut 20 percent of your daily calories with proven healthy practices: eat a big breakfast, dine with your family, and begin each meal by expressing appreciation.
  • Plant slant. Eat mostly plant-based foods, and small portions of meat no more than twice a week.
  • Wine at 5. Drinkers live longer than non-drinkers.
  • Family first. Living in a loving, thriving family can add up to six years to your life. Work on a positive, committed relationship and stay close to your aging parents and grandparents.
  • Belong. “Those with the most social connectedness tend to live longer,” . Be part of a group of healthy-minded, supportive people.
  • Right tribe. Good friends have a positive effect on your longevity. Support them and adopt healthy behaviors together.

Dreaming is wonderful, goal setting is crucial, but action is supreme. To make something great happen you must get busy and make it happen. Take that action step today that will put you on your path to achievement.

梦是美好的,目标的设定是至关重要的,但行动是至高无上的。为了使一些伟大的事情发生,你必须忙碌起来,做到这一点。今天采取行动,这将让成就你的路径。

In life, it is never the big battle, the big moment, the big speech, the big election... What really changes things is every day, getting up and rendering small acts of service and love beyond that which is expected or required of us.
