I told myself my life would be my own

In younger days,
I told myself my life would be my own
And I'd leave the place where sunshine never shone
For my life's too short for waiting
when I see the rising sun
Then I know again that I must carry on
Carry on on till tomorow
there's no reason to look back
Carry on, carry on, carry on
Beyond the shadows of the clouds
and onward to the sky
Carry on till I find the rainbow's end
For my life's too short for waiting
when I see the rising sun
Then I know again that I must carry on
Carry on till tomorow
there's no reason to look back
Carry on, carry on, carry on

Drifting on the wings of freedom
leave this stormy day
And we'll ride to tomorrow's golden fields
For my life's too short for waiting
when I see the rising sun
Then I know again that I must carry on
Carry on till tomorow
there's no reason to look back
Carry on, carry on, carry on

And when the heavy journey's done
I'll rest my weary head
For the world and it's colours will be mine
For my life's too short for waiting
when I see the setting sun
Then I know again that I must carry on
Carry on till tomorow
there's no reason to look back
Carry on, carry on, carry on......

人生,不就是一次無休無止的旅程嗎?

古時候,有一個農夫要到另外一個村莊辦事,可是當時交通不便,他只能徒步行走。走啊走,這農夫穿過一大片森林後發現,要到達另一村子還必須經過一條河流,不然的話,就得爬過一座高山。怎麼辦呢?是要渡過這條湍急的河流,還是要辛苦地爬過高山?正當這農夫陷入兩難時,突然看到附近有一棵大樹,於是就用​​隨身攜帶的斧頭把大樹砍下,且將樹幹慢慢地砍鑿成一個簡易的獨木舟。這個農夫很高興,也很佩服自己的聰明,因此他很輕鬆地坐著自造的獨木舟就到達了對岸。

上岸後,農人又得繼續往前走。可是他覺得這個獨木舟實在很管用,如果丟棄在岸旁實在很可惜!而且萬一前面再遇到河流的話他又必須再砍樹,辛苦地鑿成獨木舟。所以,這農夫就決定把獨木舟背在身上走以備不時之需。走啊走,這農夫背著獨木舟背得滿頭大汗,步伐也愈走愈慢,因這獨木舟實在是太重了,壓得他喘不過氣來!

這農夫邊走邊休息,有時真是好想把獨木舟丟棄不要了!可是,他卻捨不得,心想,既然已經背了好一陣子就繼續吧!萬一真的遇到河流就很管用了!然而這農夫一直汗流浹背地走,走到天黑,發現一路上都很平坦;在抵達另一個村莊前都沒有再遇到河流!可是,他卻比不背獨木舟花了三倍的時間才到達目的地。

人生,不就是一次無休無止的旅程嗎?我們無法預測自己人生的道路會是什麼樣的,也無法通過事先的安排,乃至充分仔細的準備,來讓我們輕鬆、坦然、無憂無慮地度過人生的旅程。

人生旅程,或平坦,或崎嶇,或湍急溪流,或陡峭高山。各種困境、磨難總會在不期然之間出現,往往令我們始料不及,措手無策。但沒有什麼"獨木舟”能夠始終讓我們走得自在,輕鬆,它對我們,只能是一時之需。

如果說,有什麼東西值得我們終身攜帶的話,它就是:堅定的人生信念!即無論遇到什麼情況,都勇敢地坦然接受,去面對和征服。

堅忍不拔的意志,堅強的身體,隨機應變的智慧,百折不撓的精神,隨遇而安的心態,此等種種,才是我們人生中真正的"獨木舟”,只有它,才能給我們帶來輕捷、穩健和永久的輕鬆。
