The Power of Gratitude （感恩的力量） Whe娛樂城註冊送n my older son was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, my first reaction was relief – I finally knew the reason for his behavior. However, I was also overwhelmed with sadness, fear and anger. I felt sorry for my son and for myself. Like many others in similar circumstances, my question to God was “Why me?” Through the grace of God, I am now able to focus on my gratitude. I believe God chose me to raise my son because He knew that I would give him the best I have. He will teach me to love and understand him for who he is. I am grateful that I have my son, and grateful that God chose me to be his mother. There is power and healing in gratitude. How can gratitude help us in our everyday lives as moms? Think about the difference you can make in your family’s life just by noticing and being thankful for all the great things they do. When you express gratitude, you show your love and appreciation. Everyone needs to feel these things every day. Sometimes as moms we feel that no one appreciates us – and it is true that moms are usually last on the list to be thanked. One way you can teach gratitude is by example. Even on the days when it seems your children or husband are doing everything wrong, find a reason to thank them. Take the time and energy to look for the good. Think about the things that your family does that deserve a “Thank you.” You might say to your husband, “Thank you for working so hard for our family,” or, to your child, “I really appreciate your sense of humor – it feels good to laugh.” Expressing your gratitude helps family members to understand how it feels to be appreciated. And if they still don’t catch on, let them know when you feel unappreciated. You can also tell them how great it makes you feel when they do express gratitude. Gratitude is a wonderful motivator when you need cooperation. When enlisting the help of my two year old, I praise him often and with enthusiasm. I let him know that he is a great helper. I know I am teaching him appreciation because he expresses it to me. The other day I brought a bunch of multi-colored roses home. For five days, at least once or twice a day, my son thanked me for the flowers. Sometimes we get so busy and caught up in daily life that we forget to be grateful. We expect everyone to do their share without being asked. The only time anyone hears anything is when a chore has not been completed. This attitude, over the long haul, will develop very resentful and uncooperative family members. When life is good, gratitude is easy. It becomes more challenging to be grateful when we are experiencing hard times. Financial hardship, long-term illness, the death of a loved one and marital strife can all be trying and difficult. It is hard to find anything to be grateful for. But while pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. We have a choice in how we view our circumstances. We can turn our hearts to God and trust that he has a plan for us. We can be thankful for the lessons we learn and the opportunities for personal growth and transformation. Look at all the people in this world who share the gifts they received during especially difficult times of their life. It is the painful times of my life that have made me stronger, wiser, and more loving today. I recently attended a powerful seminar on the various levels of energy that a human being emanates. The presenter identified seven different levels of energy. The first level of energy is defined by feelings of apathy and thoughts of victimization. A person at a level two energy has feelings of anger and thoughts of conflict. As a person moves up the energy scale, their feelings and thoughts are more positive. At level seven, one would experience unconditional love and no judgmental thoughts. Only God radiates at level seven. The average person emits energy at a level of 2.5. To experience peace and joy, an in- dividual must raise his energy level to 5 or 6. So how can we raise our energy level and open our heart to joy? One powerful way is to develop an attitude of gratitude. Look at every- one with grateful eyes. Listen to your heart and the heart of your loved ones. Speak words of affirmation every day of your life. Be grateful for your life with all its lessons and blessings. The more grateful thoughts and feelings you experience and express the more instrumental you will be in healing the world. And your outlook on life will improve in the process.。

Youth （青春）—–經典背誦美文 Author: Samuel Ullman 譯者：王佐良 Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination,a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.青春不是年華，而是心境；青春不是桃面、丹唇、柔膝，而是深沉的意志，恢宏的想象，炙熱的戀情；青春是生命的深泉在涌流。Youth means a tempera-mental predominance of courage over timidity,of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20.Nobody grows old merely by a number of years.We grow old by deserting our ideals.青春氣貫長虹，勇銳蓋過怯弱，進取壓倒茍安。如此銳氣，二十后生而有之，六旬男子則更多見。年歲有加，并非垂老，理想丟棄，方墮暮年。Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spring back to dust.歲月悠悠，衰微只及肌膚；熱忱拋卻，頹廢必致靈魂。憂煩，惶恐，喪失自信，定使心靈扭曲，意氣如灰。Whether 60 or 16,there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonder,the unfailing childlike appetite of what’s next and the joy of the game of living.In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station:so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the Infinite, so long are you young.無論年屆花甲，擬或二八芳齡，心中皆有生命之歡樂，奇跡之誘惑，孩童般天真久盛不衰。人人心中皆有一臺天線，只要你從天上人間接受美好、希望、歡樂、勇氣和力量的信號，你就青春永駐，風華常存。When the aerials are down,and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at 20,but as long as your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism,there is hope you may die young at 80.一旦天線下降，銳氣便被冰雪覆蓋，玩世不恭、自暴自棄油然而生，即使年方二十，實已垂垂老矣；然則只要樹起天線，捕捉樂觀信號，你就有望在八十高齡告別塵寰時仍覺年輕。
、An IllusionWilliam S. MaughamIt is an illusion that youth is happy, an illusion of those whohave lost it; but the young know they are wretched, for they arefull of the truthless ideals which have been instilled into them,and each time they come in contact with the real they are bruisedand wounded. It looks as if they were victims of a conspiracy; forthe books they read, ideal by the necessity of selection, and theconversation of their elders, who look back upon the past through arosy haze of forgetfulness, prepare them for an unreal life.They must discover for themselves that all they have read and allthey have been told are lies, lies, lies; and each discovery isanother nail drivens into the body on the cross of life. The strangething is that each one who has gone through that bitterdisillusionment add to it in his turn,, unconsciously, by the powerwithin him which is stronger than himself.―――――――――――一種錯覺威廉. S. 毛姆認為青春是快樂的，這是一種錯覺，是那些失去了青春的人的一種錯覺。年輕人知道，自己是不幸的，他們腦子里充斥了被灌輸的不切實際的想法，每次與現實接觸時，都會碰的頭破血流。似乎，他們是某種陰謀的犧牲者：那些他們所讀過的精挑細選的書，那些長輩們談起的因遺忘而蒙上玫瑰色薄霧的往事，都為年輕人提供了一種不真實的生活。他們必須自己發現，所有他們讀到的、聽到的東西，都是謊言、謊言、謊言。每一次的這樣的發現，都像是另一根釘子釘入他們的身體，那被束縛在生活的十字架上的身體。可是奇怪的是，每個曾經被這種錯覺折磨過的人，輪到他們時，有一種不可控制的力量，讓他們不自覺地為別人增添這種錯覺。―――――――――――威廉. S. 毛姆（1874-1965），英國著名小說家、劇作家、散文家。原先攻讀醫學，后轉而致力寫作。他的文章常常在譏諷中潛藏著對人性的憐憫與同情。
I planned to say all these terrible things to you, but in the end, I just want to tell you I miss you.我本打算對你傾訴所有糟糕的事，但到最后，我只想告訴你我想你。When you develop unshakable self-confidence, your whole world will change for the better. 當你培養了不可撼動的自信，你的整個世界都會變得更好！
the rules for being human1. You will receive a body.You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period.1.你將擁有一個軀體。你可以喜之也可以惡之，但它畢生都會屬于你。2. You will learn lessons.You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life. Each day in this school you will learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.2.你將接受教育。你入讀了一所叫做”生活”的大學的全日制非正式學校。在學校的每一天你都將接受教育。你可以愛你所愛或者視之無聊而又豪無裨益。 3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.Growth is a process of trial and error: Experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately “works”.3.沒有過失，只有教訓。成長就是反復”嘗試-犯錯”的漸進過程，或者說是實驗。那些所謂”失敗”的實驗和最終”奏效”的實驗一樣重要，都是這個過程的一部分。4. A lesson is repeated until learned.A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. Once learned, you then go on to the next lesson.4.同樣的教訓會不斷重復直到你真正領悟為止。同樣的教訓會以不同的形式不斷出現在你面前直到你學會為止。而一旦你學會了，就會馬上進入下一課的學習。5. Learning lessons does not end.There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.5.學無止境。生活的每個部分無不包含可學之處。只要活著，你就學無止境。6. “There” is no better than “here”.When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here”.當你終于擁有了不曾擁有的東西，你只會發現自己又在向往別的東西，它們看起來總比你擁有的東西要好些。 7. Others are merely mirrors of you.You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.7.他人只是你的鏡子。不要去愛慕或憎惡別人的品性，除非這些品性在你自己身上也能找到，而你以同樣的態度處之。 8. What you make of your life is up to you.You have all the tools and resources you need.What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.8.要過怎樣的生活由你作主。你掌握著陸一切你所需的工具和資源，怎么用全由你作主。決策權在你手中。 9. The answers to Life’s questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen and trust.9.生活的答案皆藏心中。你只須觀察，聆聽和信任。 10. You will forget all of this.10.生活中你會忘記所有這些準則。 下面這個網址有很多，你看下，五篇足夠了本文來自： 恒星英語學習網（） 詳細出處參考：。
