Money will NEVER solve your real problems

钱不能解决你的实际问题

Money is a tool; a commodity that buys you necessities and some nice “wants,” but it is not the panacea to your problems. There are a great many people who are living on very little, yet have wonderfully full and happy lives… and there are sadly a great many people are living on quite a lot, yet have terribly miserable lives.

金钱只是个工具,能买到生活所需和一些不错的“必需品”,但不是解决你问题的万能药。有很多人虽然没有很多钱,但仍然过着充实愉快的生活,相反,有些人十分富有,却活得并不幸福。

Money can buy a nice home, a great car, fabulous shoes, even a bit of security and some creature comforts, but it cannot fix a broken relationship, or cure loneliness, and the “happiness” it brings is only fleeting and not the kind that really and truly matters. Happiness is not for sale. If you’re expecting the “stuff” you can buy to “make it better,” you will never be happy.

钱能买来好房子、好车子、漂亮的鞋子,以及一些安全感和舒适度,但却无法修复一段破碎的关系,无法治愈孤独,它所带来的幸福感转瞬即逝也并不实在。幸福不能靠钱来买。如果你总是希望靠买什么来获得幸福,你永远都不会幸福。

Pace yourself

放慢脚步

Often when we’re young, just beginning our adult journey we feel as though we have to do everything at once. We need to decide everything, plan out our lives, experience everything, get to the top, find true love, figure out our life’s purpose, and do it all at the same time.

年轻的时候,我们总觉得成人之路才刚刚开始,总想一次把所有事都完成。我们需要为所有事做出决定,进行人生规划,体验所有的事情,达到顶峰,找到真爱,发现我们人生的目标,所有的都同时完成。

Slow down—don’t rush into things. Let your life unfold. Wait a bit to see where it takes you, and take time to weigh your options. Enjoy every bite of food, take time to look around you, let the other person finish their side of the conversation. Allow yourself time to think, to mull a bit. Taking action is critical. Working towards your goals and making plans for the future is commendable and often very useful, but rushing full-speed ahead towards anything is a one-way ticket to burnout and a good way to miss your life as it passes you by.

慢点吧,别太着急。慢慢开始自己的生活,等等看看自己到了什么地方,花点时间去衡量一下自己的选择。享受每一口食物,花点时间看看周围,让别人完成他们的 倾诉。给自己点时间去思考和沉思。行动是十分关键的。朝着你的目标前进,为未来做出规划的确很值得有用,但全速前进似乎是张单程票,让你无法回头,还会让你错失路边的风景。
