Live A Little 活在當下

提要
電影《星際過客》(Passengers)片中,男主角吉姆在數千名休眠乘客中,因太空船遭撞擊,獨自意外醒來。他每天在偌大船艙中孤單度過,心情鬱悶,某天早餐喝咖啡時,對著仿真機器人亞瑟說,來點勵志金句吧,我快受不了了,亞瑟果然建議他:「活在當下!」
Jim Preston:I’m lost in space here.
Arthur the bartender:You’re not where you want to be. You feel like you’re supposed to be somewhere else.
Jim:You said it.
Arthur:Well, say you could snap your fingers and be wherever you wanted to be. I bet you’d still feel this way. Not in the right place…..
Point is, you can’t get so hung up on where you’d rather be that you forget how to make the most of where you are.
Jim:What are you telling me?
Arthur:Take a break from worrying about what you can’t control. Live a little.
Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know what they may affect your life in some profound way.
And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.
Make every day count! Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.
解說
吉姆:我在太空中迷失了。
亞瑟:這不是你想去的地方,你覺得自己應該在別的地方。
吉姆:正如你所說。
亞瑟:嗯,假設彈彈手指,就能讓你去任何想去的地方。我敢打賭,你仍然會覺得自己應該在別的地方……重點是,你不能總是執著於「如果在某某地方比較好」,而是該充分利用自己目前所在的地方。
吉姆:你的意思是?
亞瑟:別再汲汲於無法控制的事了,放自己一馬,活在當下、享受人生。
有時,人們出現在生活周遭,你立刻就知道他們是為了幫助你、教導你,或讓你弄清楚自己的本質或嚮往的目標。你永遠無法預料,這會以何種深刻的方式影響你的人生。
有時遭遇某事,起初可能看起來可怕、痛苦和不公,但事出有因,所有的事都非偶然或運氣。疾病、傷害、愛情,重大的失落,單純的愚蠢等等之所以會發生,都是你靈魂的試鍊。如果沒了這些小測試,生活就會像一條平坦筆直的道路,雖然安全而且舒適,但卻沉悶又毫無意義。
把握每一天,享受每一刻,那些時刻可能無法再重現!與從未交談的人溝通,真的用心傾聽。告訴自己,你是一個了不起的個體並相信自己,如果不相信自己,別人很難相信你。
