恰当的着装,合宜的面色,努力要打扮的恰到好处,这就是时尚生活方式的一切。对于什么样的妆容是时尚的,我经常会得到不同的答案,而生产"最时髦"的产品也正是这个行业亘古不变的竞争。拒绝,也是其中很大的一部分。一部真的与时代紧密相连的电影这个月还被接受,三个月或者六个月之后就完全没市场了。我很快了解到,你只是和你最后一部电影一样红火,因为没有任何一部会长命百岁。
Wearing the right thing, having the right look and trying to fit in was all part of the lifestyle. I constantly got different answers on what look was in and there was constant competition to have "the latest" in the industry. Rejection was also a big part of it. A picture that was really contemporary and accepted one month was completely shunned three or six months later. I soon learned that you're only as hot as your latest pictures. There was no longevity in any of it.
在时尚界,你必须时刻奋斗以保持现有地位,因为总有其他人想要将你取而代之。我开始过非常自我的生活。"我","我自己"是我最喜爱的词语。我被我的职业所吞噬,也总是遥遥领先。我没有注意去帮助任何人,也没有被任何人所烦扰。正是在巴黎的这段时间,我开始询问自己到底发生了什么,我怎么会走到这一步。我回想起我生命中的一段关键时期。
In the fashion industry you're always striving to keep up because there's always someone else trying to take your place. I began living a very self-centered life. "Me", "myself" and "I" were my three favorite words. I was consumed with my career and getting ahead. I wasn't on the lookout to help anyone or be distracted by anyone. It was during this time in Paris that I began questioning what had happened and how I reached this point. I thought back to a crucial time in my life.
一个高中同学邀请我去参加她教堂里的一个音乐会。我答应了,我知道儿童合唱团的一半是男孩子,而且这个教堂很大,所以一定会很有看头。当音乐会要结束的时候,乐师说他有一些好消息要告诉我们。我想他会告诉我们关于他第一张唱片的一些东西或者什么。但我听到的却是,上帝是眷顾我的,那源自一份伟大的爱,他遣自己的儿子耶稣来背负我一生中所有的罪孽。那天晚上我感谢上帝,感谢他原谅我的罪过,并请他进入我的生命之中,请他来改变我,而我将因此为他而生。
A classmate from high school had invited me to a concert at her church. I accepted because half of the teen group were boys and the church was very large, so I knew this could be fun. At the close of the concert the musician said he had some good news to tell us. I thought he was going to tell us about his first record deal or something. Instead, I learned that day that God loves me, and it's because of that great love that He sent His Son Jesus to take the punishment for all the sin in my life. That night I thanked God for forgiving me and asked Him to come into my life and change me so that I could live for him.
但是,现在,仅仅是几年之隔,生活已经失去了所有真实的含义。我忽视了自己与上帝的关系,开始选择自己的方向。我感觉如此空虚,因为我在为了自己而活,为了别人的赞许而活。我再一次请求上帝原谅我,并且邀请他回到我的生命中来。我通过读《圣经》而更多的了解了上帝,我可以毫不夸张的说,与单纯为自我而活相比,与基督建立关系给了我更多的幸福与自尊。
But now, only a few years later, life had lost its true meaning. I had neglected my relationship with God and began to choose my own direction. I felt so empty because I was living for myself and the approval of others. I asked God to forgive me once again and invited Him back into my life. I started getting to know Him better by reading the Bible and praying, and I can honestly say that having a relationship with Christ has given me more happiness and self-esteem than living a life for myself.
生命可拥有更多
There's more to life
与上帝的关系带来了真正平衡的感觉,使我不再过于关注自我。我会帮助许多想要进入时尚界的年轻女孩子。我给她们真实的信息,为她们免去了很多心痛的经历,也使她们少浪费了许多时间。我可以做她们的行为榜样。
My relationship with God brings a real sense of balance and keeps me from being self-absorbed. I've been able to help many younger women who want to get into this industry. I can give them honest information and spare them a lot of heartache and wasted time. I can be a role model to them.
关于漂亮的一个神话就是,拥有漂亮即拥有一切。但是世界上一些最漂亮的女人却是最不觉得安全的。美丽会带来一种安全感,但那是一种虚妄的安全感,你把它建立在在一种不会持久的东西上,它迟早会坍塌。如果那是你的全部,你的生活也建立在其周围,那么它非常容易分崩离析。
One of the myths of being beautiful is that with it, you can have it all. Yet some of the most beautiful women in the world are the most insecure. Beauty may bring a type of security, but it is an artificial security where you are building on something temporary that will fade. If that's all you have and you build your life around it, it can come crashing down very easily.
训练你的心智
Train your mind
守卫你的心与头脑,这很重要。如果你在努力改变自身形象,不要读那些美容杂志,远离那些大肆标榜任何东西的电视节目。很多女人花大量时间看那些宣扬完美形象的东西,而她们永远也不会达到那个水准。我们需要集中精力于自身具备的东西,而不要为了难以达到的理想境界而过分忧虑。
It's important to guard your heart and mind. Don't read those beauty magazines if you struggle with your body image. Stay away from TV shows that flaunt everything. There are a lot of women who spend hours watching things that promote ideals that they will never come close to measuring up to. We need to focus on those things that build us up, not weigh us down with unattainable ideals.
你在美容杂志和大多数媒体上看到的许多东西只是一些纸墨勾当。如果上帝没有让你多高或者多重,那么你就得在他赋予你的资质上做到最好。
A lot of what you see in beauty magazines and most media is airbrushed. If God didn't make you a certain height or weight, you need to do the best with what He's given you.
看看你的生活。你会如何形容它呢?心满意足?忙忙碌碌?激情四溢?压力很大?积极向上?踌躇不前?对于大多数人来说,我们会在不同时刻拥有所有以上生活性征。有些事情我们梦想着有一天会做,有些事情我们希望会忘怀。《圣经》里说,耶稣来到世上,就是为了让一切有个崭新的开始。如果可以重新来过,你的生活会是什么样子呢?
Take a look at your life. How would you describe it? Contented? Rushed? Exciting? Stressful? Moving forward? Holding back? For many of us it's all of the above at times. There are things we dream of doing one day, there are things we wish we could forget. In the Bible, it says that Jesus came to make all things new. What would your life look like if you could start over with a clean slate?
生活在希望当中
Living with hope
如果你在寻求平静,有个方法可以帮助你平衡生活。没有人可以做到完美,或者拥有完美的人生。但是,通过与上帝的密切关系,我们每个人都有机会经历上帝赐予的完美的恩典。
If you are looking for peace, there is a way to balance your life. No one can be perfect, or have a perfect life. But every one of us has the opportunity to experience perfect grace through a personal relationship with God.
