双语美文:今天你该鼓励自己去做的10件事

What you do every day is already important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. But today, I dare you to take it up a notch, pump some extra life into every hour, and really make your time count.

每天你做了什么其实很重要,因为你在用生命中的一天与它做交换。但在今天,我鼓励你提高自 己的标准,在每一小时里加入更多的生活元素,让你的时间真正过得有意义。

Today, I dare you to…

今天,我鼓励你去做……

1. Make someone else smile.

1. 给他人带来微笑

Ordinary people worry today and postpone their happiness for tomorrow. Intelligent people are happy today and postpone their worries for tomorrow. Wise people only wish happiness for all, today and tomorrow. If you wish to have a lifetime of happiness, dedicate time every day to helping others smile with complete sincerity and enthusiasm.

普通人是担心今天,把幸福留给明天。聪明人是享受今天,把担忧留给明天。智者只求快乐,不 管是今天还是明天。如果你想拥有一辈子的幸福,那么每天请真心实意地、热情地抽点时间给他人带来微 笑。

2. Be imperfect.

2. 不求完美

Something that is really difficult, but totally worth it, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the journey of becoming your true self. The most beautiful part of this journey is simply returning to the peaceful feeling of being. This peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.

放弃追求完美,这是一件很难做到但完全值得做的事情,开始一段做真实自我的旅程。这段旅行 最美丽的那部分,是拥有那份做自己时的心灵宁静。宁静源于重塑了你的思维,接受现状,而不是你认为 的生活应该是怎么样。

3. Be enthusiastic about what you’re doing.

3. 对你在做的事热情满满

You’re not given a good life or a bad life. You’re given life, and it’s up to you to make it good or bad. So wake up and get motivated; not everybody made it to today. Don’t take your time for granted. Don’t waste time thinking back to what you could have done differently yesterday. Keep your eyes on the road ahead and do it differently today. Wherever the road takes you, bring your passion. Whatever you do along the way, do it with all your heart.

没人注定就会过好生活或是过坏生活。生活或好或坏,是由你来决定的。所以每天醒来时,记得 给自己动力。不要随意挥霍你的时间。不要浪费时间去想,若是回到昨天你就可以做得更好。看清眼前的 路,今天就做到与众不同。无论去往何处,请带着你的热情;无论你要去做什么,请全力以赴。

4. Make the best of what happens.

4. 既来之,则安之

More important than what happens to you, is what you make of what happens to you. The more thankful you are, the more beautiful this world appears. You must uncover the good in the bad, the happy in your sad, the gain in your pain, and what makes you grateful not hateful.

发生了什么虽然很重要,但更重要的是你如何看待发生在你身上的事情。怀着一颗感恩的心,这 个世界会更美丽。你必须要在困境中发现机遇,在忧伤中感受幸福,在付出中获得回报,关注那些让你开 心的事而不是那些让你厌恶的事。

5. Forgive your past self.

5. 原谅过去的自己

Sometimes, good people like you make bad choices. It doesn’t mean you’re bad; it means you’re human. So get bored with your past; it’s over. Forgive yourself for what you think you did or didn’t do, and focus on what you will do starting now.

有时,好人会做出糟糕的选择,比如说你就会。这并不意味着你坏;你也只是普通人而已。所以 不要去纠结你的过去了,一切都结束了。原谅那些你看重的你做过或不曾做过的事,将注意力集中在从现 在开始你将要做什么。

6. Spend some time simply being and breathing.

6. 花些时间关注自己,深呼吸

The only way to live happily ever after is one day at a time. Just be, breathe, and think not about what you’re missing, but what you’ve been given. Happiness is something that comes into our lives gradually through the doors we don’t even remember leaving open.

过上幸福生活的唯一方法是珍惜唯一的每一天。只要活着感受呼吸,不要去想你失去了什么,要 想想你得到了什么。幸福从那些我们都遗忘了的大门里渐渐地闯进了我们的生活。

7. Learn something new.

7. 学习一些新东西

It’s important to remember that you cannot become who you are capable of being by remaining exactly where you are. If you are not willing to learn and grow, no one can help you. But if you are determined to learn and grow, no one can stop you. In the end, there are no permanent jobs on this planet; we are all interning here. Learn from everyone, evolve, remain humble, and don’t forget to have a good time.

有一点很重要:如果是原地踏步,你不可能成为原本你能成为的那个人。如果你不愿意学习和成 长,没人能帮助你;但如果你决意要学习和成长,也没人能阻拦你。最后,在这个星球上没有一份永远的 工作:我们都是实习生。从别人身上学习、发展、保持谦逊,当然也不要忘记享受生活。

8. Look in the mirror, and tell yourself what you love about yourself.

8. 看着镜子,告诉自己你爱自己什么

What we see in the mirror is what we see in the world. Our disappointment in others perfectly reflects our disappointment in ourselves. Our acceptance of others perfectly reflects our acceptance of ourselves. Our ability to see potential in others perfectly reflects our ability to see potential in ourselves. Our patience with others perfectly reflects our patience with ourselves. You get the idea – you’ve got to show yourself some love first.

我们在镜子里看到的便是我们在这个世界里看到的,对别人的失望反映出我们对自己的失望,接 纳他人反映出我们接纳自己。我们看到了他人身上的潜能反映出我们也能够看到自身的潜能,对他人的耐 心反映出我们对自己的耐心。你懂的,首先你要爱自己。

9. Focus on the qualities you like about those around you.

9. 关注周围人中你喜欢的特质

Whenever we focus on a person’s wonderful qualities, we have a wonderful relationship with them. Whenever we focus on a person’s not so wonderful qualities, we have a not so wonderful relationship with them. What we focus on grows in our minds and hearts.

当我们关注了他人的美好特质,我们便会和他们保持很好的关系。当我们关注了他人差劲的品行 ,我们和他们的关系便不太友好。那些我们关注的会融合在我们的思想和心灵深处。

10. Say “yes” to a spontaneous opportunity.

10. 抓住可遇而不可求的机会。

Everything in life can’t be planned. Some of the greatest opportunities will knock on your door when you least expect them to. Be flexible, be spontaneous, and just say “yes.”

生活中的一切都不能被硬性计划起来。一些伟大的机遇将会在你最不经意的时候敲响你的门。要 灵活,要随性,只说“是” 就好。
