Simple Painting and Simple Words #006: Maintain the Equilibrium 保持平衡

Maintain Your Equilibrium

上edx的course (The Science and Practice of Yoga)时,看到一句很好的话。
“Yoga is Equilibrium”
这让我想要画这一幅画。

美好的生活是由很多不同的元素组成。
除了工作和赚钱之外,生活中还有许多其他重要的部分。
每个人都有追求的生活模式。
不必在意别人追求的是什么,只要你清楚知道你想要追求的是什么。
要记得怎样保持平衡。

一天是由许多时刻组成的。
时间在不停的转,要学会在每一刻保持平衡。

A wonderful life is made up of many different elements.
There are many other important aspects in life other than work and working money.
Everyone pursues different lifestyles.
Don't be bothered by others' pursuits, as long as you clearly know what you want to pursue.
Remember the way to stay balanced.

A day is made up of many moments.
As time goes on, learn to maintain the equilibrium in every moment.

Strawberries and More Strawberries at Cameron Highlands 金马伦之草莓食记

到金马伦游玩,当然要吃当地的草莓。
一天里在不同的地方尝试了不一样的吃法。

每次去金马伦都会到Raju's Hill Strawberry Plantation看一看。
这一次可是感觉上这里不像以前那么热闹了。
也许是因为现在金马伦有越来越多新的景点了。
也许是那时正在下绵绵细雨。
点了Strawberry Smoothie 和 Sundae。

在Tanah Rata的Barracks Cafe吃午餐后,点了Original Scones,有Strawberry Jam和Butter。
味道不错。

在The Smoke House Hotel and Restaurant享受朋友口中的“贵妇”生活,哈哈。。。
这么多年来金马伦旅游的时候都会经过这一间旅店和餐厅,不过没有到此一游。
这一次的旅行因为朋友说一定要吃这里非常好吃又有名的scone,所以终于到此一游。
点了两个Afternoon Tea Sets:
1) Strawberries and Cream
2) Devonshire Cream Tea (2 Scones with Homemade Strawberry Preserve and Cream)

吃了之后,我觉得scone值得推荐。

晚上在homestay前面的夜市场买了新鲜的草莓吃。

一颗草莓,可以新鲜的一颗一颗吃,也可以制成各种各样的食品。
可以成为主角,也可以成为配角。
做人也因如此,要flexible一点,创造不同的可能。
你不一定要跟着多数人的步伐走,你也可以与众不同。
相信自己,每一天都是创造不同可能的新的一天。

Together is Better 在一起,更好


看了一本充满启发的书  - 《在一起更好 》。简单的字、插画,还有很有意思的句子,让人看了有所启发。我看的版本是中英对照的。
I read a little book of inspiration - Together is Better by Simon Sinek. It's a book not to be missed - simple words and illustrations with inspirational quotes.

书中其中一段有意思的文字:
“愿景就像是个梦 - 要是我们不拿出实际的行动,它就会消失。
大张旗鼓,或是做点小改变都好。
不要再犹豫了,大胆试一试吧。”
”A vision is like a dream - it will disappear unless we do something with it.
Do something big or do something small.
But stop wondering and go on an adventure.“

“在一起,更好”这书名,让我想到了人与人之间的关系。一个人当然也可以独立自己做某些事,可是有些事在一起做的时候也会有不一样的效果或感受。有些事,有些时候,在一起,其实真的是更好。

Simple Painting and Simple Words #005: Do not hesitate 不踟蹰

005 donothesitate

一开始听孙燕姿《跳舞的梵谷》的时候会觉得不是很能接受这样的歌。
听了几次还是觉得这样的风格太过独特,至于为什么还是会多听几遍也说不出真正的原因。
重复听了很多次以后终于能感受到这首歌独特的意境了。
旋律和歌词都很特别,感受到一种平时听歌没有感受过的艺术感和音乐感。
不欣赏的时候也许有理由,也许说不出理由。
喜欢的时候也许只有一个理由,也许有很多理由,也许说不出理由。


歌词里有一句“不踟蹰”,让我认识了两个新字,也提醒自己做事不要犹豫不决。
在现实生活中,每一个人的心里都有一些听似不切实际的梦想。
只要你相信你是可以的,就不要踟蹰。
一直向前走,你就有机会看到一路的沿途美景。
有一天,你会发现目的地原来不是那么遥不可及。

喜欢MV里的一句话:
理智與瘋狂,我選擇並行。
「世界上一定有很多跟我一樣的人, 一樣被賦予一些些瘋狂的人。 」—孫燕姿

Make Your Bed



I read a great book, entitled Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...And Maybe The World by William H. McRaven. He shared the 10 principles that he learned during Navy SEAL training.

I've been doing this first task of the day right every day since years ago. I've never thought that this would be the title of a great book. This book opened my eyes to the basic SEAL training as well. I strongly recommend this book to others. Each chapter includes a short story which teaches us life lessons. 

Interestingly, the first principle is "if you want to change the world, start off by making your bed".

"If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another.
By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter."


How can we do the great things right if we can't even do the little things right?
Too often we measure success by the great things that we achieve. 
Remember that every little thing in life counts.
Are you ready to accomplish more tasks each day?
Start your day by doing the first task of the day right.
