笑对人生

Keep Smiling

 

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: 'I am blind, please help.' There were only a few coins in the hat. 

 

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words. 

 

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, 'Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?' 

 

The man said, 'I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.' 

 

What he had written was: 'Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.' 

 

Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing? 

 

Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective? 

 

Moral of the Story:

 

Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively.

 

Invite others towards good with wisdom. Live life with no excuse and love with no regrets. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear. 

 

Great men say, 'Life has to be an incessant process of repair and reconstruction, of discarding evil and developing goodness... In the journey of life, if you want to travel without fear, you must have the ticket of a good conscience.' 

 

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling...

 

And even more beautiful is, knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!

 

The Best Way to Cheer Yourself is to Cheer Somebody Else. Keep Smiling!

 

 


 

 

笑对人生

 

一个瞎男孩儿坐在一栋楼的台阶上,脚边翻放着一顶帽子,里边有几个硬币。在他旁边立着一块牌子:“我是瞎子,恳请帮助。”

 

一位先生走过这里,从兜里掏出几个硬币扔到帽子里。接着,他拿起牌子,翻转过来,写了几个字在上面,之后放了回去,以便路过的人都能看见他新写的字。

 

很快,帽子就满了,因为有很多人往帽子里放钱。那天下午,写字的那位先生回来看一看情况如何。男孩儿从他的脚步声听出是他,就问:“你是那位今天早晨改我牌子的那位先生吗?你都写了什么呢?”

 

“我只是写了事实。我从另一个角度重写了你的话,”先生回答说。他是这样写的:“今天真是个好日子,但我却看不到。”

 

你觉得这牌子的两面说的是同一件事吗?

 

当然,牌子的两面都是告诉人们男孩儿是个瞎子。但第一面仅仅说了男孩儿是瞎子。第二面则告诉人们他们能看见是多么幸运的事啊。如此看来,你我会因为第二面写的更起到作用而惊奇吗?

 

故事的启迪:

 

感谢你所拥有的吧。做一个有创意的人。

 

要从多角度和积极面去思考事情。

 

用智慧的言语同邀别人行善。遇到难处不怨天尤人。要爱无索求。即使生活让你有一百个理由哭泣,也要向生活展示你有一千个理由笑对人生。不对以往心怀遗憾。要满腔豪气地面对今朝。无畏地面对将来的一切。抛弃忧郁,持守信心。

 

伟人们说过:“生活就是不断修改重建,弃恶扬善的过程。......如果你愿你的生命之旅毫无疑惧,你就必须拥有问心无愧的车票。”

 

看到别人快乐是最美的事,而知道你自己就是那人快乐的缘由则更回味悠长。

 

让自己开心的最好方法是让别人开心。继续笑对人生吧!
