Living on worries and tribulations but Dying from fecklessness and playfulness

I am gonna make my weakness in public, here in my blog.

There is a Chinese saying which goes as "生于忧患死于安乐", which means living on worries and tribulations but dying from fecklessness and playfulness. This is my interpretation of the Chinese saying and maybe it is not 100 percent correct from perspectives of Chinese traditional culture experts but the interpretation is relevant to my weakness.

The last blog where I have told you that I have no idea what I am going to do for my future implies my weakness--always staying in self comfort zone and taking all difficulties out of mind but never making up my mind to face up with those difficulties and being confident in defeating them.

When asked what your plan is for your senior school year or whether you are going to prepare for post-graduation examination or what you are going to do this summer, I always answer "wait for time to see it","I will figure it out but it must take time","I don't plan to do that but wait to see what is suitable for me", etc.

So yesterday I play video games the whole day and nothing came to my mind, reminding me of what I should do. I am always not a planner but always a escaper, always tring to escape doing this or doing that because I only see the difficulties but not the opportunities underlying there.

Here I write about my weakness not in order to remind me of my weakness so that I may defeat it. I always know that it is easy for me to forget to get rid of my bad habbits, not to mention my deeply-rooted weakness. My purpose is very simple, just to let me know I have this weakness. Whether it will be rid of or not, we will see. If I succeed in ridding it of, I will make the result in public, here in the future blog.

    Never ending 'war on terror' is no accident. With capitalists or against them. And yes change in media and CIA taking complete control is no accident. These actions are actually proof of how scared and weak the American 'elite' are and people hate them more now than in the 90s. JJ  Abraham cannot save them. It's only a matter of time. Conditions are now perfect to destroy them

    Only simple people can be happy with a simple life. I am not a simple person - I am quite complicated.

    HailChina!: Have you ever seen the show 'The Simple Life'? It was an American TV show featuring millionaires Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie and it was about them ...
    You must have got a lot of feelings for what has been done by American media. Terrorist actions are always big blows in America. Maybe the media knew what "the most familiar" to people is what "the most eye-catching to them" . When peace and prosperity were all around America, the media sold peace and prosperity; when terrorist actions and "having fun of the disadvantaged" are so permeated in people's hearts, especially the rich, the media sell those. Commerce runs as it does but we can be not just as what the reality tells us. We may be different from people of other times; yet, we must share the same nature of being. No matter what "realtiy" shows us, the nature of being shall lead us half step forward with half step in thinking through "reality". The reality is so complicated that unveiling real happiness out of simple life will be so precious and cherished.
