When youre nearing the summit of this turbulent climb through life, will you reach the top with wild enthusiasm or will you be hobbling with the aching knees of regret? Youve climbed through storms, passed over green patches and had help from friends, and now its almost over. Your whole life has been leading you to this moment and one thing is certain: this final ascent we all have to do alone.
生活遇到湍急巅峰时,你是乐观攀登到顶点还是悲叹着徘徊不前?你已经历过狂风暴雨、走过一马平川,也得到过朋友的帮助,但现在一切已成过往。人生走到这一刻,唯一能确定的便是:最后这一仗,你只能孤身奋战了。 verywen.com

What thoughts will flash through your mind? You will be faced with tough questions such as: Did I do enough, love enough, was I happy?

健康高于一切 www.verywen.com

2. Take the time to do the things you love


This may sound clich, but work less and play more. You will never regret taking a vacation, engaging in a new hobby or spending a day with those who make you happy. But you might regret never taking that art class, reading that book or crossing big items off the bucket list. Be a participant in life.
虽是陈词滥调,但你确实应该少操心工作、多学会享受。去度假、发展新爱好或和使你快乐的人消磨一天,你绝对不会后悔;但若是没有去上那堂艺术课、没有阅读某本书或没能完成某个心愿,你却会感到后悔。所以,做个生活的积极参与者吧。 美文网

Ten years from now you might think, Where did my life go? When we live mindfully we immerse ourselves in moments. These are the moments that make up our lives. If you dont practice mindfulness you run the risk of having these precious moments of your life lost to a string of foggy over-thinking. Rest in the spaces in between the major events, these spaces are your life.
十年后你可能会问:我这辈子是怎么过来的?如果用心生活,你会尽情过好每分每秒,而正是这些分分秒秒构成了全部生活;要是麻木生活,你会错失生活中美好的瞬间,以后只留下一抹模糊的掠影。享受里程碑间的间歇时光吧这些就是你的生活呵。 内容来自美文网

10. Stop chasing money, fame, and possessions
停止追逐金钱、名利和财富 美文网

We crave wealth, prestige, fame and popularity, we crave material things and beautiful people. We mistakenly think that happiness is going to arrive when we meet these goals. Instead of enjoying our life, we are in a constant pursuit of something other than where we are right now.


At the end of your life, your expensive BMW will not be whats flashing through your mind. You will more likely smile at the memory of your loyal dog. Stop chasing material possessions, there is no real happiness there, only an endless pursuit.
咽气之际,你脑中闪现的或许不是宝马汽车,而是让你微笑的忠诚老狗。停止追逐物质财富吧。物质并不能带来真正的快乐,只会招来永无止境的贪婪。 本文来自美文网

11. Always practice gratitude

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Melody Beattie
感恩开启生活的圆满。它使我们拥有更多,变拒绝为接受,化混乱为有序,使困惑变澄澈。它能将简餐变成盛宴、房屋变成家园、陌生人变成好朋友。 梅洛迪-贝蒂 copyright verywen.com

下面一段话摘自玛莎-贝克的文字,把遗憾总结非常美妙,我感到受益匪浅: 美文网

So the ultimate lesson of regret, the one that will help guide you into a rich and satisfying future, is this: Every time life brings you to a crossroads, from the tiniest to the most immense, go toward love, not away from fear.
