24EN Editor's Note:An ordinary morning. You are starting your ordinary day. Do you want it to be ordinary? Ask yourself a question: "What would I do if today was the last day of my life?" I think your answer will be: "I would like it to be the best day of my life."

一个普通的早晨,你开始了普通的一天。你想让这一天依旧平淡吗?问问自己:“如果今天是我生命的最后一天,我会做什么?”我想你的答案会是:“我想让它成为我一生中最美好的一天。”

I don't want to upset you, but nobody can ever find out what day is going to be the last. And so it’s better to live each day of your life as if it is the last. I'm not telling you to quit your job and spend all you money on traveling. But you can live your life to its fullest by adding some simple things to each day. It doesn't matter what is going on, but it does matter how you feel about it. Do not forget that life is too short to be unhappy! Here is my recipe for the best day on Earth!

我并非想让你心烦,但是没有人知道哪一天会是自己生命的最后一天。所以,我们最好把每天都当作生命中的最后一天来过。我并非要让你辞掉工作,将所有积蓄用于旅行。不过,只要在每天的生活中添加些许简单的原料,你就可以尽情地享受生活。发生什么并不重要,重要的是你对此的感受。切记人生短暂,毋须伤怀! 以下就是我创造地球最美好一日的秘诀!

1. A Handful of Happiness

一点快乐

Where can you find it? Take a look inside of you! Happiness doesn't come from the outside, it is within you. Each moment your life gives you a lot of opportunities to be happy. If you want to see them, you will. If you don’t, it's up to you.

从哪里能找到快乐?问问你的内心!快乐不是外界给予的,而是来自内心。生活每时每刻都在为你提供各种快乐的机会。如果你想看到这些机会,你就能发现它们。如果不想,就取决于你自己了。

"You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." — Buddha

“你可在世间寻觅比你自己更值得你去爱惜的人。不过,你在任何地方都找不到。你和世间的所有其他人都值得你去爱惜。”——佛陀

Gratitude is one of the strongest positive feelings. We all have something to be grateful for. If you are grateful for everything that you have, you will get more things to feel gratitude for. And this feeling makes you feel good.

感激之情是最强烈的积极情感之一。总有一些人或事值得我们感谢。如果你感恩于自己现在所拥有的一切,那么你将会对更多的事物充满感激之情,而这种感觉会让你心情愉快。

"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful." — Buddha

“让我们都有颗感恩的心。即使我们今天没有学到很多东西,至少我们学了一些;即使我们什么也没学到,至少我们身体健康;即使我们疾病缠身,至少我们依然活着。因此,让我们都有颗感恩的心吧。”——佛陀

敢于梦想,一步一步地实现自己远大的梦想。每个人都是自己生活的创造者。你每次为自己的目标而做出的努力都见证着你的成长。

"To dream anything that you want to dream. That's the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do. That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed." — Bernard Edmonds

“有梦就去追,这是人心灵的美丽所在。有想做的事就去做,这是人的意志力所在。要敢于挑战极限,这是成功所需的勇气。”——伯纳德·埃德蒙兹
