早上同事兼好友轉寄來一段文字,很有感覺,再加上幾個朋友遲遲無法走出生命中的低潮,便很雞婆的寫下自己的想法,轉寄給他們。順手貼在這兒,希望大家都能找到、或成為自己的心靈捕手 ^^


Subject: A Strong Woman vs A Woman of Strength

i think this applies to everyone?! not only woman, but also man ...
especially those who took life as a burden.

上個月跟友台Ocean Blue台長去看了兩部紀錄片:維格妮的撿拾風情part I & II。
導演維格妮訪問了法國境內許許多多以撿拾為生的人(撿破爛、撿剩菜蔬果)

不要以為他們是生活窮困才這麼做
也許一部分是,但不少人卻是抱著不要暴殄天物的心態

有的人廢物利用,成了藝術家,進而改善了自己的生活

其中一個談吐不凡,甚至擁有生物碩士學位
白天在車站附近幫公益團體賣報紙
晚上在他住的貧民公寓地下室開班授課,免費教法文
三餐都在菜市場撿拾剩菜,是個素食者
而且只要能走路,絕不坐車
他覺得這樣的生活充實愉快,並不想做什麼改變
'cause he is healthy, body and soul

印象最深刻的還有一個非洲裔撿拾者
當導演問他:『你這樣不會太辛苦嗎?會不會覺得自己命不好?』
他回答:『no, never..... 』
他說:絕不能怨天尤人,偶而還要自嘲一下,自娛娛人
'cause life is a blessing

工作生活總難免會有低潮,我也常會有心情不好的時候
fortunately, i'm a good self-mentor
從小就喜歡講冷笑話給自己聽... 哈哈哈哈

我不知道說這些有沒有用,因為我的方法不見得適用於其他人
但何不各方面嘗試,找出最適合自己的方法,解開心結
也許只有自己,才能點化你自己

即使解不開,也無所謂啊,還有我嘛~
despite all those fielding errors, i'll catch you every time whenever you fall...

for my best friends ^^

A Strong Woman vs A Woman of Strength:

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape...
but a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape.

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything...
but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear.

A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her...
but a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future...
a woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face...
but a woman of strength wears grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey...
but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.

Pass this on to a GREAT WOMAN... I just did.

"I can handle anything that life throws at me - I may not be able to handle it well, or correctly, or gracefully, or with finesse, or expediently-but I will handle it."

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
