「兩周一聚」(26) : 寫給自己的信

有些日子總是如此事事不順利,來來回回奔奔跑跑走冤枉路。趕出門口走到街上發現袋中的鎖匙不見了,轉頭跑回家的時候才知道原來它一直穩在衣袋裡; 街口有家麵包舖非常方便,偏偏在我宴客需要長包的時候關門休息; 怕冷躲懶不騎綿羊仔而走去搭地鐵,誰知鐵路會在中途故障了,等等,等等...

這一天又是個好例子,跑進地鐵却發現自己要乘的一條路線出現技術問題,硬著頭皮擠進車廂裡,車卡還是在終點前三個站停了下來,結果要再多轉兩次車才能夠接近目的地,走出地鐵站還要多走十多廿分鐘,弄得自己滿頭大汗,正駡自己太笨有自唔在,張目但見滿地金黃,潮濕灰暗的早晨,並沒有令眼前的美景失色,轉個街口,又是個街口,我放慢了腳步,故意踢著腳下的落葉,索性多吸一口新鮮的空氣,趁機享受一刻的寧靜,那一段冤枉路,總算沒有白走。

人生的歷程中不時也有冤枉路,自怨自艾一番之後,路還是要走,緊要嗎? 塞翁之馬,誰曉得何為得何為失?既來之,則安之,倒不如事事處之泰然... 可以做得到嗎?

I love how you ended your letter. And I thought about the serenity prayer.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

--Reinhold Niebuhr

有時"冤枉路"或"失敗",如果我們能從中學習,可能也不太壞。

所以話,巴黎落葉好看.

其實是,在巴黎,才有開眼的時候.

路,一定要走.

葉,不看便沒有.

>> ... 塞翁之馬,誰曉得何為得何為失?

It is SO TRUE!!! If my father had allowed me to study in Hawaii, I would have spent all my time watching girls on the beach and flunked out of univeristy, which would have upset my parents and myself.

Now I am freezing my butt off in Canada, but am very happy (so did my father, bless his soul)!!!
^_^

michelle said...

Haricot: oh yes, it is almost my 座右銘 :)

好最後問"可以做得到嗎?"
其實又有何打緊呢,回頭一看,還不過是小事一則,還不記得當初為何要如斯執意得失. 倒是笑自己當時的在意, 現在的無意思.

冤枉路嗎?我喜歡哦!嘻嘻!

michelle said...

gwen: 其實雖說如此,我還是不太喜歡冤枉路 :P
