我想要快樂。

所以很多時候,都會盡量快樂地過日子。但有時性格使然,遇到某些自己不爽的人就會不高興,不過通常都很快復原。雖然不是常常做到,但總希望快樂地面對每一天,平靜地面對每個挫折。

前陣子讀聖經讀到這個:"So I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is his lot. For who can bring him to see what will happen after him?" (Ecclesiastes 3:22)

我覺得這話非常有道理。人生在世,老是在追求未來的什麼。想要畢業的時候有份好工作,想要工作忙碌之後有好的生活,希望捱過目前的難關,之後就雨過天清。不是說這些不對,為未來打算,對明天存着盼望,都是恰當的事。只是,我們有時對未來太有信心了。未來是什麼,我們實在沒有辦法知道。今天忍辱負重做了很多的事情,明天也可能到頭來一場空,什麼也得不到。就像傳道書所說:

"For a man may do his work with wisdom, knowledge and skill, and then he must leave all he owns to someone who has not worked for it. This too is meaningless and a great misfortune" (Ecclesiastes 2:12)

我們作出各種各樣的犠牲,因為我們相信到最後一切都會有回報,但果真如此嗎?不少我們以為可以收到回報的,到最後一刻卻變成過眼雲煙。人生在世,在為未來打算的同時,也要為現在打算。結果很重要,但過程也很重要。因為有時,我們是不會見到理想中的結果的,我們到最後所有的,可能只是過程的回憶,可能過程就是我們的全部了。所以我想在計劃未來的時候,也要盡量做自己喜歡的事情,那麼起碼,我們還可以享受奮門的過程。

"So I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is his lot. For who can bring him to see what will happen after him?" (Ecclesiastes 3:22)
