  深圳美联英语:幸福观逐渐转变

  In the teenage years the concept of happiness changes. Suddenly it’s conditional on such things as excitement, love, popularity and whether that zit will clear up before prom night. I can still feel the agony of not being invited to a party that almost everyone else was going to. But I also recall the ecstasy of being plucked from obscurity at another event to dance with a John Travolta look-alike.

  到了青少年时期,幸福观逐渐转变。突然间,幸福就建立在激动、爱情、名气甚至是脸上的青春痘能否在晚会前消失这样的事上。我清楚地记得,大家都去参加一个舞会,而我末被邀请时的痛苦。但也记得,在另—次活动中,我意外地与—个貌似约翰·特拉沃尔塔的人共舞时的兴奋。

  In adulthood the things that bring profound joy---birth, love, marriage---also bring responsibility and the risk of loss. Love may not last, * isn’t always good, loved ones die. For adults, happiness is complicated.

  成年后,心灵深处最令人喜悦的是爱情和生育,走进婚姻的同时也意味着责任和安逸。爱情可能会消逝,性爱也不总是如意,心爱的人可能会死去。对于成人来说,幸福很复杂。

  My dictionary defines happy as “lucky” or “fortunate”, but I think a better definition of happiness is “the capacity for enjoyment”. The more we can enjoy what we have, the happier we are. It’s easy to overlook the pleasure we get from loving and being loved, the company of friends, the freedom to live where we please, even good health.

  字典里幸福的定义是“幸运”或“好运”,但我认为幸福更好的定义是“感受快乐的能力”。更多地享受我们拥有的一切,我们就能更多地享受幸福。但是,爱与被爱,友人相伴,简单的生活,甚至健康的体魄,这些细碎的快乐却很容易被我们忽视。
