聪明的人不为他没有的东西而抱怨,而为他拥有的东西所欢欣。----埃皮克提图
He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has. ~Epictetus
今天,你对你想感激的人说谢谢了吗?虽然这是再小不过的事情,却会对你以及你所感谢的人的生活产生巨大的影响。
Have you said thank-you to someone to show how grateful you are for them today? It’s such a small thing, but it can have a huge impact on your life, and the life of that person.
生活中常怀感恩之心并懂得一些表达感激的方式,会使你自己和你周围的人更快乐。甚至只需一个小小的手势,就会引起美好的连锁反应而立刻感染周围,就像湖面的涟漪轻轻荡漾开去,让人感觉这世界更美好。
Find little ways to incorporate gratitude in your life, and you’ll be much happier … and you’ll make the people around you much happier as well. That’ll have a ripple effect that will make the world a better place … with such a small gesture!
说谢谢一点都不难。然而如果只是一句苍白的谢谢,则会失去感激的真谛。你需要真诚的说谢谢,或者通过一些小细节去表达你的感激之情。
Saying thank you isn’t hard at all. But the words can lose meaning if they’re just words. You need to say them with sincerity, or show your gratitude through little actions.
你能想象一个人人都真诚以对、感恩不尽的世界吗?如果有人帮了你的忙,你应该回报给人一个温暖的微笑并致谢。如果你某天过得不开心,却有人愿意腾出自己的时间去迁就你陪伴你,只因你曾经帮了她的忙。人们也许会生气,或者伤心,但也知道就算自己当时的情况再坏,也需要表达对你的感激之情。
Can you imagine a world where everyone showed gratitude? If someone did you a kindness, you’d give them a warm smile and say thank you. If you were having a bad day, someone else would take time out of her life to comfort you, out of gratitude for a kindness you did her yesterday. People would still get angry, or sad, but would know to find ways to be grateful, even in difficult situations.
我知道,我知道···我是一个理想主义者,这样完美的世界或许永远不可能存在。但没关系。我能接受现实,同时亦为我们拥有这美好的世界以及我的生命中有像你们一样可爱的人而心怀感激。为此我想一些适时表达感激之情的小细节可以在潜移默化中深远的影响我们的生活。
I know, I know … I’m an idealist, and such a world will never exist. But that’s OK. I can accept the world as it is … and at the same time, show my gratitude for what a wonderful world we have. And what wonderful people (such as you guys) are in my life. And in doing so, my little acts of gratitude will radiate throughout the world, changing it in subtle but profound ways.
很平淡?也许吧。我有时确实很平淡。但是让我告诉你:生活中常怀感恩之心并真诚致谢(尽管我有时候也没能做到)已经改变了我并且使我变得更快乐。我衷心的向大家做此推荐。
Corny? Perhaps. I can be corny at times. But let me tell you: incorporating gratitude in my life (even if I’m not always successful at it) has changed me and has made me happier. I recommend it heartily.
对于那些想为感恩有所行动的人们,无论是针对某一个人或在日常生活中,我在这里介绍几种我深感有效的方式:
For those who’d like to do little things to show their gratitude, to a specific person or to life in general, here are a few ideas that work for me:
1.创造一种感激的固定程序。就像我早前对这一话题所描述的一样,在许多个早晨我都会做一个小小的程序:闭上我的双眼,花上几分钟时间想想我很感激的人和事。除了你们读者外,当然也包括提供这一交流平台的组织。当然,还包括我的亲人以及我生命中其他的人。
1. Create a Gratitude Ritual. As I described in an earlier post on this topic, on many mornings I do a little ritual: I just close my eyes, and take a couple of minutes to think of the people and things I’m grateful for. That includes those who’ve donated to this site, as well as all you readers. And of course, my loved ones, and others in my life.
2.送出一张致谢小条。你知道,当你做完一点好事后收到一张致谢小条是挺美的享受。你不需要非得送一张正儿八经的致谢卡(尽管那手感不错),只是小小一张对别人热心相助的致谢便条(或者邮件)便能起到很大作用。而这只需要一分钟!
2. Send a thank-you note. You know, it’s nice to get a little note thanking you for something you did. You don’t need to send someone a formal thank-you card (although that’s a nice touch), but just a little note (or email) saying thank you for a specific thing the person has done for you can go a long way. And it only takes a minute!
3.一个免费的拥抱。好吧,这个只是适当的时候才做。但如果你有爱的人,请别吝啬给他们一个拥抱!我们常常不会轻易对我们身边的人流露感情,甚至是和我们最亲近的人。但请别忽视了维持关系的这一重要部分。所谓免费的拥抱,即是把它当作感激的礼物,而不要期待任何回报。而如果你给陌生人一个拥抱,那还是准备好抱完赶快跑吧。
3. Give a free hug. OK, only do this when appropriate … but if you have a loved one in your life, give them a hug! Often we can go too long without showing our affection and gratitude, even to those who are closest to us. Don’t neglect this important part of your relationship. By “free” hug, I mean don’t expect anything in return — just give it as a gift of gratitude. If you give a hug to a stranger, be prepared to run very fast afterward.
4.感恩今日!你甚至不用感谢特定的某个人,你可以感谢生命本身!每当你醒来时,怀着感恩的心迎接新一天的到来。感谢你还活着!我以前就曾发表过这一观点,但我这还有一个来自达赖喇嘛的著名感恩祷文,他告诉我们:每天当你醒来时就想想,“今天我幸运的醒来,我还活着,我拥有宝贵的生命并将不会虚度年华。我将用全部的力量去提升自己,向别人敞开心扉,感化众生,以善待人,不迁怒,不把人往坏处想,而要尽我所能的使人人受益。”
4. Give thanks for today! You don’t even have to thank a person … you can thank life itself! Wake up, and greet the day with gratitude. Be thankful you’re alive! I’ve printed this before, but here’s a favorite gratitude prayer of mine by the Dalai Lama, who tells us: “Everyday, think as you wake up, ‘Today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others as much as I can.’ ”
5.举手相帮。多做善事,不要期待任何回报。哪怕是很微不足道的事情。为人递上一杯饮料或咖啡,做一些零星杂务,为别人提供一份差使等等使人感激的事情。真的。想想那人喜欢什么,想要什么或者需要什么,然后去帮助他们,哪怕事情再小也好。行动胜于雄辩,多做善事比空口说话更能表露你的感激之心。
5. Do someone a free favor. Without expecting anything in return, do something nice for someone. Just something small. Get them a drink or a coffee, do a chore for them, offer to do an errand, anything they’d appreciate, really. Think of what the person likes, wants or needs, and try to do something (even something small) to help them. Actions speak louder than words, and doing something nice will show you’re grateful more than just saying it.
6.送一个小礼物。不需要高档或者昂贵的,一件小小的礼物就是一个很不错的表示。
6. Give a little gift. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive, but a little gift can be a tremendous gesture. Here are 30 ideas.
7.送给对方一张列有他们对你的帮助的感谢清单。花上5至10分钟时间写上你喜欢某人的10到50个理由,或者他们为你做过的不胜感激事情。
7. Give someone a list of all they’ve done that you’re grateful for. Take 5 minutes and make a list of 10 or 50 things you love about someone, or things they’ve done for you that you appreciate.
8.公开答谢。谁不喜欢公开的赞扬呢?找个公开的方式宣扬某人的贡献并表达你的感激···可以是在你的办公室,在朋友之间或是家里,在博客上或是当地的报纸上都可以。
8. Acknowledge them publicly. Who doesn’t love public praise? Find a way to acknowledge the contributions of someone, to show your gratitude, in a public way … in your office, among friends and family, on your blog, in your local newspaper.
9.恰当的给予他们惊喜。通常来说,这与第5条最相近,但它更注重的是给人以惊喜。小小的惊喜细节能带来很大的不同。当你的妻子下班回家,记得准备好一顿温馨的晚餐。当你的妈妈早上走出家门的时候,让她看到自己的车子焕然一新。当你的女儿打开她的午餐盒时,能够看到一张你在等她的爱心小纸条。如此种种,你知道怎么做了吧。
9. Surprise them with kindness. Actually, this is mostly the same as Item #5, but with a twist: surprise the person. That little extra step of surprising them can make a big difference. When your wife comes home from work, have a lovely dinner prepared. When your mom walks out her front door in the morning, have her car nice and clean. When your daughter opens her lunch pail, have a little note and a treat waiting for her. You get the idea.
10.即使别人帮不了忙也要向对方致谢。事实上这是最难的一部分。当事情搞砸时,当我们不开心时,当人们针对我们时,当我们被每天繁杂的日常琐事压得喘不过气来时······我们就懒得去感恩去答谢了。但事实是,这往往是最紧要的关头。如果你已经做到了以上9条,那你就完全可以做到这一条。
10. Say thanks even for negative things in your life. This is the hard part, in truth. When things go wrong, when we’re not happy, when people are mean to us, when we are worn down by the million slings and arrows of everyday life … we don’t want to say thank you. But in truth, this is the time when it matters most. If you’ve mastered the first 9 items on this list, you’re ready to master this one.
当你陷入生活低谷时,当你受伤、生气、困惑或沮丧时,停下来,闭上你的眼睛然后想想值得你感恩的事情。你的健康、家庭、工作、居有其所、不需为下一顿饭而发愁、你身边的美好世界、你生命中遇到的好人、你的新苹果机······等等,随便你能想到的,试着为这美好的一切而感恩并传递你的感激心声。要认识到这一切在这世界上并不坏,并为之感到幸福快乐。
When life gets you down, when your hurt or angry or confused or frustrated, take a moment to stop and close your eyes and find things to be thankful for. Your health, your family, your job, the roof over your head, the fact that you’ll have a next meal, the beauty of the world around you, the good people in your life, your new Macintosh computer. Whatever you can think of, be thankful for them … and express that gratitude somehow. Realize that all is not bad in this world, and be happy for that.
然后,当你学会了这一技巧,不妨想想你生活中消极的事情,然后感激它们。那些故意刁难你的人?感谢他们教会了你耐心和懂得。那只扯毁你衣服的狗?谢谢它教会了你谦逊。你经历过的自然灾难?感谢它提醒了你什么才是生命中最重要的。你正在经历的病痛?感谢它会让你变得更强壮。
And then, when you’ve mastered that skill, think of the negative things in your life … and give thanks for them. That person who was mean to you? Thank them for teaching you patience and understanding. That dog that tore up your trash? Thank him for teaching you humility as you pick up the trash. The natural disaster you went through? Thank it for reminding you of what is important in life. The illness you are going through? Thank it for making you stronger.
