Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them: work, family, health, friends, and spirit, and you're keeping all of them in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls--family, health, friends, and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.

想象下,人生就好比是你在玩游戲時當空飄起的的五個球兒.它們依次叫做:工作、家庭、健康、友誼、心靈,你把它們都放飛在空中。很快地,你就會發現“工作”是個彈力球兒。就算你松開手不去管它,它還會是會再次跳起來。但是其他的那四個球兒——家庭、健康、友誼、和心靈是玻璃般制成的。如果你丟下它們中的任何一個,它注定就會劃傷了、有擦痕了、被弄壞了,甚至裂成碎片了。不可能再完好如初了。因此,你必須了解這點,並為掌握它們之間的分配與平衡努力。

How?

怎樣做到這一點呢?

Don t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.Itis because we are different that each of us is special.

不要總拿自己與別人比從而貶低自身的價值。正因為我們彼此的差異不同,我們才會各有千秋。

Don t set your goals by what other people deem important. Onlyyouknow what is best for you.

別人認為重要,並不能作為你確定目標的根據。只有你自己知道,什麼東西對你最好。

Don t take for granted the things closest to your heart. Clingtothem as you would cling to your life, for without them, lifeismeaningless.

與你內心最貼近的東西,切莫等閑視之。要像堅守生命一樣堅守住它們,因為失去它們,生活就會毫無意義。

Don t let your life slip through your fingers by living inthepast or for the future. By living your life one day at a time,youlive ALL the days of your life.

不要耽于過去或未來,而讓生命從指間悄悄溜走。一次只活一天,活在今日,你就充實地活過生命中的每一天。如果你還可以付出,就不要輕言放棄。

Don t give up when you still have something to give. Nothingisreally over until the moment you stop trying.

在你停止努力那一刻之前,什麼都沒有真正結束。

Don t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. Itisthis fragile thread that binds us each together

正因為我們都不完美,我們才會彼此需要。.

Don t be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chancesthatwe learn how to be brave.

不要害怕遭遇風險。只有通過冒險,我們才能學會如何變得勇敢。

Don t shut love out of your life by saying it s impossibletofind. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastestwayto lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way tokeeplove is to give it wings.

別說真愛難求,而將愛拒之門于生活之外。獲得愛的捷徑是給予愛,失去愛的捷徑是扼住愛,而守住愛的捷徑是給愛插上翅膀。

Don t run through life so fast that you forget not only whereyouve been, but also where you are going.

不要一生奔忙,匆匆而過,以至于忘了自己從何而來,往何而去。

Don't forget that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.

不要忘了每個人最強的感情需求就是別人的認同和支持.與人交談或者安排時間時要多多用心.因為“一言既出,駟馬難追”.人生不是一場競賽,而是一次旅途,好好享受你路上的每一處風景吧.

Yesterday is a history,tomorrow is a mystery,only today is a gift,that is why we call it present.

昨天屬于歷史。明天是未知的謎。而今天是賜予我們的禮物︰所以我們把“今天”稱之為present。
