最近看到這則不錯的一段影片, 想與大家分享內容, 希望有所啟發和獲益
So, my question to you today is :
What do you practice...everyday?
What do you practice?
Because what you practice you'll get good at.
What do you practice?
Do you practice JOY in your life?
Do you practice PEACE in your life?
Do you practice HAPPINESS in your life?
Or do you practice a lot of COMPLAINING?
'Cause if you complain, you'll get very good at it!
And you'll get SO good at it, that you'll find fault with EVERYTHING!
Even when there is NO fault, that a layman cannot see. (layman 門外漢)
YOU, being an expert, will see it!!
What do you practice?
Do you practice ANGER?
'Cause if you practice ANGER, you'll get VERY good at it!
And you'll get So good at it...that the most TRIVIAL thing. (trivial 瑣碎的, 不重要的)
TRIVIAL thing will make you ANGRY.
Like sitting in an airplane watching the seat across from you,
somehow looks better than the one you have been given!
And that is so unfair of the airline!
What do you practice?
Do you practice being WORRIED?
'Cause if you practice being WORRIED...,
you'll get very good at it!
And you'll get SO good at it,
that EVERYTHING will worry you!
Including the buffalo you don't have! (buffalo 水牛)
So, I propose......
If this is TRUE that it's a question of practice, then I propose you practice...JOY!

The Tortoise 陸龜 and The Hare 野兔 (龜兔賽跑)
There once was a speedy hare who bragged about how fast he could run. Tired of hearing him boast, Slow and Steady, the tortoise, challenged him to a race. All the animals in the forest gathered to watch.
Hare ran down the road for a while and then and paused to rest. He looked back at Slow and Steady and cried out, "How do you expect to win this race when you are walking along at your slow, slow pace?"
Hare stretched himself out alongside the road and fell asleep, thinking, "There is plenty of time to relax."
Slow and Steady walked and walked. He never, ever stopped until he came to the finish line.
The animals who were watching cheered so loudly for Tortoise, they woke up Hare.
Hare stretched and yawned and began to run again, but it was too late. Tortoise was over the line.
After that, Hare always reminded himself, "Don't brag about your lightning pace, for Slow and Steady won the race!"

and humans come and steal the honey away,
Don’t you feel bad...?”

“Humans can only take away my honey,
But not my talent of making honey...”

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block.
He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor. On seeing him, the father yelled, “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have any sense of responsibility?”
The doctor smiled and said, “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came as fast as I could after receiving the call. And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”.
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies while waiting for doctor, then what will you do??” said the father angrily.
The doctor smiled again and replied, “We will do our best by God’s grace and you should also pray for your son’s healthy life”.
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happily, “Thank goodness! your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running by saying, “If you have any questions, ask the nurse”.
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears were coming down her face, “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was at the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”
Moral: Never judge anyone because you never know how their life is and what they’re going through.
