有一個人,他生前善良且熱心助人,所以在他死後,昇上天堂,做了天使。他當了天使後,仍時常到凡間幫助人,希望感受到幸福的味道。

一日,他遇見一個農夫,農夫的樣子非常困惱,他向天使訴說︰「我家的水牛剛死了,沒牠幫忙犁田,那我怎能下田作業呢?」於是天使賜他一隻健壯的水牛,農夫很高興,天使在他身上感受到幸福的味道。

又一日,他遇見一個男人,男人非常沮喪,他向天使訴說︰「我的錢被騙光了,沒盤纏回鄉。」於是天使給他銀兩做路費,男人很高興,天使在他身上感受到幸福的味道。

又一日,他遇見一個詩人,詩人年青、英俊、有才華且富有,妻子貌美而溫柔,但他卻過得不快活。

天使問他︰「你不快樂嗎?我能幫你嗎?」詩人對天使說︰「我什麼也有,只欠一樣東西,你能夠給我嗎?」

天使回答說︰「可以。你要什麼我也可以給你。」

詩人直直的望著天使︰「我要的是幸福。」

這下子把天使難倒了,天使想了想,說︰「我明白了。」

然後把詩人所擁有的都拿走。天使拿走詩人的才華,毀去他的容貌,奪去他的財產,和他妻子的性命。天使做完這些事後,便離去了。

一個月後,天使再回到詩人的身邊,他那時餓得半死,衣衫襤褸地躺在地上掙扎。於是,天使把他的一切還給他。然後,又離去了。

半個月後,天使再去看看詩人。這次,詩人摟著妻子,不住向天使道謝。因為,他得到幸福了。

你曾覺得孤獨?你嚐過幸福的味道?

孤寂、璀璨本就是形容詞,所有的形容詞都是比較的。

沒嘗過孤寂,又怎知何謂璀璨的人生?孤寂又豈非人生之必經?

人很奇怪,每每要到失去,才懂得珍惜。其實,幸褔早就放就在你的面前。

肚子餓壞的時候,有一碗熱騰騰的拉麵放在你眼前,幸福。

累得半死的時候,撲上軟軟的床,也是幸福。

哭得要命的時候,旁邊溫柔的遞來一張紙巾,更是幸福。

幸福本沒有絕對的定義,平常一些小事也往往能撼動你的心靈,幸福與否,只在乎你的心怎麼看待。

朋友,你的心,充滿了幸福嗎?還是,溢滿了哀愁?

愉快的心情,敲你的心門時,你就該大大的開放你的心門,讓愉快與你同在。

  • Wine at 5. Drinkers live longer than non-drinkers.

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.

夢是美好的,目標的設定是至關重要的,但行動是至高無上的。為了使一些偉大的事情發生,你必須忙碌起來,做到這一點。今天採取行動,這將讓成就你的路徑。

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.
