The Lesson of the Bamboo Trees
One of my fondest memories as a child is going by the river
and sitting idly on the bank.
There I would enjoy the peace and quiet,
watch the water rush downstream
and listen to the chirps of birds
and the rustling of leaves in the trees.
I would also watch the bamboo trees bend under pressure from the wind
and watch them return gracefully to their original position
after the wind had died down.
When I think about the bamboo tree’s ability to bounce back
or return to its original position,
the word “resilience” comes to mind.
When used in reference to a person
this word means the ability to readily recover from shock,
depression or any other situation
that stretches the limits of a person’s emotions.
Have you ever felt like you are about to snap?
Have you ever felt like you are at your breaking point?
Thankfully, you have survived the experience to live to talk about it.
During the experience you probably felt a mix of emotions
that threatened your health.
You felt emotionally drained,
mentally exhausted
and you most likely endured unpleasant physical symptoms.
Life is a mixture of good times and bad times,
happy moments and unhappy moments.
The next time you are experiencing one of those bad times
or unhappy moments that take you close to your breaking point,
bend, but don’t break.
Try your best not to let the situation get the best of you.
A measure of hope will take you through the unpleasant ordeal.
With hope for a better tomorrow or a better situation,
things may not be as bad as they seem to be.
The unpleasant ordeal may be easier to deal with
if the end result is worth having.
If the going gets tough and you are at your breaking point,
show resilience.
Like the bamboo tree, bend, but don’t break!

    竹子的启示
    童年最美好的记忆之一就是沿着小河走,
    或者漫不经心地站在河岸上。
    在那里,我享受着内心的宁静,
    看着水冲击着障碍物顺流而下,
    听鸟鸣啾啾和树叶的沙沙声。
    我也喜欢看竹子们被风吹弯
    而在风停止后优雅地恢复原状。
    当我想到竹子们恢复原状或原本的能力
    “弹性“这个词就出现在脑海,
    当把它引用到人身上来,
    这个词就意味着
    人很容易从挫折、沮丧或任何处境中恢复
    那挑战了人类情感的极限。
    你是否感到要崩溃了?
    你是否有面临强度极限边缘的感觉?
    感谢吧,你生存下来的经历会告诉你一切。
    在你可能在经历
    一个威胁你健康的情绪。
    你感到情绪像水一样一泻而下
    心力交瘁
    而你最可能在忍受这种不愉快的身体状况。
    生命是有好时光和坏时光
    幸福时光和不快乐时光组合而成。
    下一次你可能真正经历坏时光或不愉快时光的一部分,
    这可能让你接近崩溃的边缘,
    可以弯但不要折。
    尽力让最好的你去应对这种处境,
    一个有希望的措施可以带你通过严酷的考验。
    带着明天更美好或情况会更好的期待,
    事情看起来就可能没有你想象的那么糟糕。
    如果最终结果值得追求
    那严酷的考验就容易应对。
    假如生活变得艰难
    而你在崩溃的边缘,
    发挥一下韧性吧,
    像竹子一样
    弯而不折!
