the meaning of life is not to let yourself suffer, but to learn to enjoy the present.
I saw a story some time ago.
an old couple lived frugally and brought up four children.
when their 50th wedding anniversary is approaching, the children want to give a golden wedding gift to the old couple.
thinking of their parents' daily yearning for the sea, the children decided to let the old couple enjoy a luxury cruise.
the old couple boarded the cruise ship on the agreed day, and the facilities on board and its high cost surprised the old couple.
Life on board is pleasant and bitter.
the old couple enjoy the scenery on deck every day, but because they don't want to spend money, they can only watch other tourists play in the swimming pool, watch movies and enjoy SPA.
the old couple's room is not far from the restaurant, and every mealtime, they are always hungry by the smell of food from the restaurant.
once the old man made up his mind to taste it.
all went to the door of the restaurant, but looking at the price on the menu, the old man hesitated for a long time and finally returned to his room and opened the instant noodles he had with him.
seeing that the last day of the ship trip had come, the old man and his wife suggested:
Elegant and striking, nobody should be without our short wedding guest dresses. Immediately after buying, you get a peace of mind.
"Why don't we go and have a meal, so that when the children ask, it's easy to say no?"
the wife thought for a moment and nodded.
when it was time for dinner, the old couple came to the restaurant dressed in the most decent clothes and tasted the delicious food slowly in the romantic atmosphere of music candlelight.
the meal time is coming to an end, and the old man is still trying to get the waiter to pay the bill.
the waiter asked the old man politely, "Hello, sir. May I have a look at your ticket, please?"
the old man frowned and felt that the waiter did not respect people, so he reluctantly took out the ticket.
the waiter took the ticket and was surprised to see the clean space on the back. After marking out one of the spaces with a pen, the waiter asked, "Old sir, have you never spent money since you got on board?"
when the old man heard this, he was even more angry: "what do you care if I spend or not?"
the waiter answered patiently:
"this is a first-class ticket, and you can use all the items on board for free. As long as we show the ticket every time, we can cancel it in the space behind us. "
listening to the waiter's answer, the old couple looked surprised.
when I think about my daily struggle and reluctance, I regret it even more.
and will disembark tomorrow, the old couple can not help but relatively silent.
many people in life, like this old couple, always want to keep the best last because of temporary frugality, but it turns out to be a waste.
Don't waste the opportunity to enjoy because of speculation; don't make life boring and heavy because of self-doubt.
those who enjoy what they should enjoy, those who should play, and do not treat themselves badly for the sake of being reluctant to give up for a while can be regarded as not wasting their time and wasting their lives.
Life is a first-class ticket
the story of this old couple is very emotional.
everyone's life is like this luxury cruise ship, life is this first-class ticket.
it is up to you to decide how to live and how to spend life.
I have heard a sentence:
"many people pursue wealth all their lives, but as far as wealth is concerned, everyone is born rich, as long as they dare to show their own tickets to get everything you really want and need."
being timid will only come to a standstill and dare to try something different to add infinite color to this ticket.
Su Shi, a writer, had a rough life.
from rookies to remote officials, his life is full of drama and ups and downs.
many famous phrases were created by him when he was playing around.
in Huangzhou, he wrote: "the Yangtze River knows the beauty of fish around Guo, and the fragrance of bamboo shoots in the mountains."
in Huizhou, he sighed: "if you eat 300 lychees a day, you will always be a native of Lingnan."
in Hainan, he added: "I am born in Xishuzhou and live in Xishu."
and his open-mindedness to life is also hidden in a poem, infecting future generations.
We are always faced with countless choices when we are alive.
and every choice is an attitude towards life.
do not give up the pursuit of life because of temporary withdrawal, and do not avoid the world because of the ugliness of the moment.
be brave and bold to make every choice and try every life.
only in this way can we live up to our lives and live up to the luxury cruise of life.
Don't regard hardship as the most important thing in life
"if you suffer from hardship, you will be a superior man."
many people regard this sentence as a life motto, always be vigilant and improve themselves.
some people also said: "good medicine is bitter in the mouth, and good advice is good for deeds."
they take pleasure in enduring hardships, and they always feel that they can redouble their efforts and wait for their hardships to come and achieve success.
but reality and ideal are never different.
very often, even if a person suffers a lot, he can only get a scar in the end.
We do not deny the importance of enduring hardship, but we do not think that life is onlyThere is one thing about enduring hardships.
when a person does not regard suffering as self-passage, he can live a relaxed life.
actress Li Bingbing used to be a workaholic, spending more than half of the year on the crew and staying awake for more than 40 hours at most.
she always feels that she can endure more hardships when she is young and enjoy more happiness when she is old.
High-intensity work every day is often thrown into new work as soon as a period of work is over.
in 2015, while filming abroad, Li Bingbing suddenly fell ill, had a high fever of nearly 40 degrees for 21 consecutive days, and was so collapsed that she could not walk normally.
she had to give up the work at hand and return home for treatment.
it was only after a long rest that his condition improved.
although I am not afraid of hardship, I really can't afford to abuse myself, because my body will really be scrapped.
in life, we always want to work hard while we are young, stay up late and work overtime every day, giving ourselves unlimited pressure; we not only want to buy a house, buy a car, but also want to take good care of our parents and families.
We force ourselves into an invisible road, turning every day without a moment's rest.
but life is not supposed to be like this, and suffering is not the only thing in life.
eat what you deserve and enjoy what you deserve.
Don't let life be nothing but suffering, and don't embarrass yourself too much.
when a person gives up his obsession with enduring hardships, he can enjoy life better.
Don't be ignorant of enjoying when you should
"wait until you wear beautiful clothes, and go to interesting places when you are ready." Always pin your hopes on the future, as the days go by, there is no change in life. It turned out that I was negligent. There is not so much future, there is only the present. "
I think so.
in this fast-paced era, everyone's life is constantly repeated in the midst of busyness.
I am exhausted all day long. I think that if I have survived the present hardship, I will have the sweetness of the future.
but life never has a chance to start over, and don't give up your present life for the sake of the so-called future.
slow down your life and give yourself a chance to catch your breath.
Life will not get better because of temporary busyness, nor will it get worse because of temporary laziness.
Learning to enjoy life when you deserve it is the best reward for moving forward.
once read a story.
A boss started from scratch when he was young, worked hard in the mall for many years, and finally had a successful career.
but he is still busy every day and can't feel the joy of life at all.
one day, the boss felt unwell and went to the hospital for an examination.
but no matter what item is checked, the results appear normal.
he went to the doctor with the report, but the doctor said:
"it is because you are too busy that you feel tired. Turn off your cell phone, cancel meetings and social activities, and have a good rest for a few days. "
the boss took the doctor's advice and took off his big and small affairs.
go for a walk in the park in the morning, make yourself a pot of tea at noon, and have dinner with your family in the evening.
on weekends, he takes a camera and captures beautiful scenery everywhere.
Life is cozy and easy. Only then did the boss really feel the beauty of life.
Liang Shiqiu said: "people are most like a person only when they are idle."
Don't neglect life for the sake of work, and don't be busy when you deserve it.
there are always a lot of troubles in this world. Give yourself a rest space and slow down to enjoy life so that you can know what you really want.
as said in less is more:
"the era of happiness from material things is over, and we are moving from the era of addition to the era of subtraction. Give up the jumbled things and carefully select the self
what is most important to you is to enjoy a truly free life. "
never save the best for last
some people ask: "what kind of life can there be less regret?"
in Cai Lan's words, it is:
"We must have the ability to live a good life and do what we want to do when we want to do things the most."
sometimes we ask, what is the meaning of life?
in fact, the greatest meaning of life is to eat better, sleep better, play more, do not envy others, inculcate constantly, save more life experience, and die without regrets. "
Yes, in our life, we always want to keep the best at the end, but forget that one thing is good precisely because of our love and care at the moment.
grasp the present, live the present, only in the best time to enjoy, can give full play to its maximum value.
Mo Yan once shared a story about a friend.
A friend's wife has a favorite silk scarf, which she often takes out to appreciate.
scarves are expensive and beautiful, and my wife has always been reluctant to use them. She always wants to wait until a special occasion.
later, when my friend talked about this, he was very emotional:
"Don't leave good things for special days anymore. Every day you live is a special day."
A good-looking dress is valuable only if it is worn on you.A delicious meal, immediate taste is meaningful; in front of the person you like, grasp the present, can not leave regret.
Don't always think about "wait till later", because life is changing so fast that we never know what will happen next.
if you have flowers, you must fold them, but don't wait for flowers to break.
the meaning of life is not to let yourself suffer, but to learn to enjoy the present.
the best way to live up to your life is to live every day according to your heart.
, may everyone live a beautiful day in the days to come, have fun in time and live up to life.
