Love Your Life 要爱你的生活
We exist in the world every day and everyone leads a unique life, but some people always complain about their life. They are always hypercritical and think it terrible. Here, I issue the ringing appeal that you should and must love your life.
Basically, we lead daily life everyday, that is to say, we eat to live and at the same time we have a dwelling place. However, these are primary requirements to life. The most we enjoy is our spiritual life. The happiness of life doesn’t lie in how much we have but how much we enjoy.
First of all, I must give special emphasis to the point that “life, after all, is not as good or as bad as we believe it to be.” If you have a good eye for beautiful things, everything around you is so wonderful.
The joy of living comes to us anywhere and anytime. It so happens to many literary giants and this is what Rowe wrote: “Joy in living comes from having fine emotions, trusting them, giving them the freedom of a bird in the open.” We enjoy our life with our families and friends because they give you strength and courage making our life more beautiful.
The goodness in life cannot be denied by some pessimists. And what’s more, the more you experience and appreciate the goodness of life, the more there is to be lived. Open your eyes; open your heart and you will see that goodness is everywhere.
However, I know what you are thinking. “What if I fall flat on my face?” Of course, loving your life doesn’t mean everything in your life going on smoothly. Skye Thomas thought that “the best thing that can happen to you is for you to take a timid little leap and fall flat on your face.” You know, the most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather the moment when you overcome difficulties and see the dawn of victory. The people grasping true meaning of life is who fall many times and evaluate what he did wrong, then jump again. You must remember “even when the cold winds blow and world seems to be covered in foggy shadows, the goodness of life lives on.”
In addition, life is too short to complain or dwell on trivial matters. “The priceless days must be spent meaningfully and joyfully. How thoughtless to waste the irreplaceable hours reviewing insignificant incidents, bearing a grudge or pitying oneself! ” On the short journey of our life, we’d better be “brave enough to love, strong enough to forgive, generous enough to rejoice in another’s happiness.” On the other hand, the longer we dell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us. Fred Allen said you only live once; but if you work it right, once is enough. There are many worth appreciating in our life, so discover and enjoy them.
Many famous people had their own attitude towards life. William Shakespeare considered the world as a stage and all the men and women merely players. Another, “the art of life is to know how to enjoy a little and to endure much.” Furthermore, “the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind” had governed Bertrand Russell’s life. Wherever you are, and whoever you may be, we are all on a journey. Whatever your attitude towards the journey is, you are moving, so love it, and love your life.
Life can be good, and life can be bad. Life can be dreams, and life can be great thoughts. But life is what you make it, so try to make it beautiful. “What an extraordinary situation is that of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though sometimes he feels it.” Please note, the grieve is not our goal. You might be a pessimist, or you might be a fatalist. Now, drop those pessimistic views. Don’t forget the truth that you, and of course only you, are the master of your life. Dominate your life well and appreciate it, because it does worth living. Write it in your heart that every moment is the most glorious in your life. In this way, you have tens of thousands of reasons to love your life!
