活在当下,把握未来

[日期:08-13] 来源:  作者: [字体: ]

  I’ve always worried about everything. I don’t know exactly when being caught up with the future became a natural state for me, but eventually it did. Every now and then I found myself living in the past, wondering how things would’ve been if I would have made different choices.
  我总是觉得忧心。 我不知道什么时候未来的事情会以最自然地方式发生,但是最终也还是以最自然的方式发生了。经常都发现自己活在过去,总在思考着要是我那时候做了不同的选择会有些什么不一样的结果。
  I was never truly present, and thinking about what might happen in the future consumed my energy and sucked the joy out of each moment. I wasn’t able to appreciate my everyday life.
  我从没有真正的活在现在,思考将来会发生些什么就花去了我大部分的时间,也没法儿享受每一刻的欢乐。我没能好好地珍惜每一天的生活。
  Why do I believe enjoying each moment is a learnable skill and the most required to get what you want in life?
  为何我会认为享受现在是一项必学的技能,大部分人都得明白你想要从生活中得到什么?
  1.The future doesn’t exist
  未来的不确定性
  Everyone wants to be happy, but no matter how many people you ask what happiness really means, you’ll get just as many different definitions,
  Many of us, including me in a not too distant past think: “one day when this and that happens, I will finally be happy”, like happiness lies only in the future.
  每个人都想要得到幸福,关于幸福这个话题你问多少人,你就会得到很多种不一样的答案,大部分人,包括我在内都认为:“某天当这个/那个事情发生了,我就会觉得快乐了”,似乎幸福只存在于未来。
  In our imagination the future is always different – at its worst it can make you worry but it can also get you fired up. Both states are just a product of your imagination; they don’t really exist and can only bring fear or disappointment.In fact, we are complete, and all we need and can have in life is in the here and now, because nothing else really exists.
  我们想象的未来似乎总是有些差异----情况不好可能会让你忧虑但也可能会激励你。两种情况都只是我们想象的产物。也许并不会真的发生,它能带给我们的只有恐惧和失望。事实上,我们都是完整的,我们在生活中所需要的、可以拥有的都在这里。
  2.What we worry about probably won’t happen
  你所担心的也许并不会真的发生
  I realize that most of the things I worried about rarely actually happened. And if they did the outcome was usually positive or wasn’t nearly as bad as I’d imagined. Worrying is just an unnecessary habit which only drains your life energy.
  我发现我所担心的很多事情都鲜有发生,要是真的发生了,结果通常都是好的或者没有我想象得那么糟。那么担心就只是一个浪费我们精力的、且完全没必要的习惯。
  When you start worrying, ask yourself a few questions: Is it actually possible for the worst-case scenario to happen? If yes, is it really life-threatening? What am I missing in the present moment?
  当你开始忧虑的时候,问你自己几个问题:最糟的情形真的有可能会发生吗?如果是,那又会对我们的生活造成困扰吗?现在我又会失去些什么呢?
  Focus on what you HAVE, instead of focusing on what you think is missing.
  关注你现在拥有的,而不是只看到那些你认为你会失去的。
  3.If you can’t appreciate now you won’t appreciate tomorrow
  如果不能把握好现在,你也没法儿珍惜未来
  If you won’t learn to be happy now, you’ll be unhappy in the future. Thinking about the future is a hard habit to break. Without working on self-development you may struggle to achieve happiness, even if you get what you think you want out of life.
  要是你现在没有学着开心,以后你还是不会开心。忧虑未来是个很难改掉的坏习惯,即使你清楚你想要从生活中得到什么,但是不能自我调整你可能也很难快乐起来。
  4.With a free mind you make better decisions
  头脑的清醒有助于做出更好的决定
  When you live in the present moment you can listen deeper to your inner self. Your mind becomes clear and you can focus on solutions much better than when your brained is clouded by fear. You can focus on the life situations and issues you currently face the way they really are, not on potential scenarios that might happen.
  活在当下,你能听见你心灵深处的声音,思维更清晰的时候做出的决定会比你脑袋里满是恐惧的时候做出的决定更好。你能够更注重生活中目前你需要面对的最真实的问题,而非那些可能会出现的情况。
  We don’t need to worry about avoiding bad things. Most problems only require common sense, and other problems that we have no influence over aren’t worth worrying about anyway. The more energy you save giving your mind a rest, the better outcome you’ll have if one of those bad scenarios really comes true.
  我们不必想着如何避免最坏的情况发生。常识就能将生活中大部分问题处理好,其他对我们生活没有太大影响的问题也不值得操心。你应该把更多的精力留起来,让你头脑好好放松放松,这样要是某些不好的情况真的发生了,你还能想出更好的应对方法。
