calligraphy master of my recently wrote 4 words in Chinese calligraphy
which literally translate into English “Think of 1and 2.’ To understand such
statement we must first examine another common phrase in Chinese (人生不如意事十常八九),
translate into English, Out of ten events in the journey of life, on normal
course will bump into 8 or 9 obstacles. Think of 1 and 2 is focus on the
positive factors, smooth event or outcomes when come to handling predicaments.
In easy term think of ‘half full’ and avoid ‘half empty’ motto. It is
easily said than done you might say, well I was being negative about this one,
sorry, yes, you will never feel the differences if you do not even try.
it is true that things will always turn out right when hit rock bottom. Keep on
keeping on. Learn to be a happy person. Love your family and care for friends.
Reorganize your thinking and act positively whenever possible. Try strengthening
the relationship and you will come out stronger and better. In good times
prepare for the worse to come and in bad times welcome those as the worse might
be over soon.
Do not ask me when things will turn
around just ‘Think of 1 and 2’ in bad times!!!
