Perspective is a beautiful thing

远见很美妙

Typically, when we’re worried or upset, it’s because we’ve lost perspective. Everything that is happening in our lives seems so big, so important, so do or die, but in the grand picture, this single hiccup often means next to nothing. The fight we’re having, the job we didn’t get, the real or imagined slight, the unexpected need to shift course, the thing we wanted, but didn’t get. Most of it won’t matter 20, 30, 40 years from now. It’s hard to see long term when all you know is short term, but unless it’s life-threatening, let it go, and move on.

往往失去远见时,我们就会变得焦虑和低落。我们生活里发生的每件事都那么重大那么重要,不做好就会死,但长远来看,这一件小事似乎根本就微不足道。我们经 历的冲突,没有得到的工作,或有或无的轻蔑,突如其来的改变航向,我们想要却没有得到的东西。20、30、40年之后,大部分都会变得微不足道。当你的眼 光只放在近期,那么很难去看得长远。所以除非是威胁到生命的事情,否则其他的就放下吧,继续前进

Don’t take anything for granted

别把任何事当做理所当然

We often don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone: that includes your health, your family and friends, your job, the money you have or think you will have tomorrow. When you’re young, it seems that your parents will always be there, but they won’t. You think you have plenty of time to get back in touch with your old friends or spend time with new ones, but you don’t. You have the money to spend, or you think you’ll have it next month, but you might not. Nothing in your life is not guaranteed to be there tomorrow, including those you love.

很多东西直到失去我们才会懂得珍惜,这包括健康、家人和朋友、工作,现有或未来会有的金钱。年轻的时候,父母一直在身边,但他们不能一直陪伴下去;你总觉 得有充足的时间,和老朋友们保持联系或是花时间和新朋友玩乐,但实际并没有;你有钱花,然后觉得下个月也会有钱花,其实也许没有。你生活中所有的事情明天 都不一定还存在着,包括那些你爱的。
