【美文】祖父的一封信 Introducation
  A short letter condensed (浓缩)the wisdom of his grandfather’s life and acted. As a struggling hard(奋斗拼搏) life of the elderly can be always full of energy, we have even less reason to despair(丧气). To savor(品味) this spiritual(灵魂的) wisdom, and regain(恢复) their passion for life and dynamic to meet the challenges(挑战) of life in each !
   短短一封信浓缩了祖父一生为人处世的智慧。既然一名奋斗拼搏一生的老人都能始终充满活力,我们更没有理由灰心丧气。细细品味这篇心灵的智慧,重拾对生命的热情,活力充沛地迎接生活中的每个挑战!
   One day, a young man was cleaning out his late grandfather’s belongings(遗物)when he came across(偶然) a bright red envelope(信封). Written on the front were the words, “To my grandson”. Recognizing(认出 )is grandfather’s handwriting, the boy opened the envelope. A letter inside read.
  有一天,一位年轻人在整理他已故祖父的遗物时,偶然发现了一个鲜红色的信封。信封上面写着“我的孙子亲启”。年轻人认出是他祖父的笔迹,就打开了那个信封,里面的信写着:
  
  Dear Ronny,
  Years ago you came to me for help. You said, “Grandpa, how is it that you’ve accomplished(成就) so much in your life? You’re still full of energy(活力), and I’m already tired of struggling(奋斗). How can I get that same enthusiasm (热情)that you’ve got?”
  I didn’t know what to say to you then. But knowing my days are numbered, I figure that I owe you an answer. So here is what I believe.
  I think a lot of it has to do with how a person looks at things. I call it ‘keeping your eyes wide open.
   First, realize (意识)that life is filled with surprises, but many are good ones. If you don’t keep watching for them, you’ll miss half the excitement(喜悦,兴奋). Expect to be thrilled once in a while, and you will be.
  
  亲爱的罗尼:
  多年前,你向我寻求帮助。你问:“爷爷,您是怎么在一生中取得那么大成就的?您仍旧充满活力,而我已经厌倦了奋斗。我怎样才能像您那样充满活力?”
  那时候我不知道怎样回答你。现在我知道我剩下的日子不多了,我觉得我还欠你一个回答。以下就是我所深信不疑的。 外 语 爱 好 者 网 站
  我认为保持活力与一个人如何看待事情息息相关。我把这称为“保持开阔的眼界”。
  首先,你要意识到生活充满意想不到的事情,而且大部分是惊喜。如果你没有留意他们,你将失去生活中一半的喜悦。期待着时不时感受到惊喜吧,你一定会的。
