Look on the Bright Side

Popularity 6Viewed 6006 times 2016-5-5 06:56 |Personal category:Views|System category:Life

When a person suffers the ups and downs in life, he may have a relatively clear understanding of the meaning about the whole life. That is: however hard and complicated it is, you should look on the bright side. Just as the well-known saying goes, Sunshine is always in the rain. If you fail to look on the bright side, but immerse yourself in the failure and depression, then the sunshine will be always far away from you.

We cant deny that people have a tendency to look for and remember the worst in life sometimes. It is human nature, right? Of course, there is a great deal of corruption, cheat, filth, and evil in the contemporary society to make people confused, frustrated and suspicious. If you focus only on these negative phenomena, however, you will never win the battle to obtain happiness and satisfaction. Actually, for every corrupt politician, there is one who is an honest and dedicated public servant. For every entrepreneur who are greedy for numerous profits, there is a business executive who works very hard and is willing to bear the social responsibility, such as donating money for charity and producing environmentally-friendly goods. For every teacher who will only place a big emphasis on the grades of students, there is one who attach great significance to the virtue of students. As long as you look on the positive side, then you will definitely achieve joy and confidence.

Yesterday, I read an article written by How about Henan people, which inspired me a lot. When it comes to the Henan, you may think of the large population and the poor economy, even the not-reliable people. I have no idea why people think that way, but that is their original opinion. In the essay,   talked about her terrible experience in henan, which were mostly about her being cheated and unfairly treated. That was a really awful memory for everybody, but why did she still stay and teach in Henan ? She said the most important reason was that there were some friendly, warm-hearted colleagues and friends. These guys were like her Chinese family, giving them comfort and sincere care. Absolutely yes, I am from Henan, and also I often hear that most people have a bad opinion on us. I think that is not wise to judge a group of people that way. After all, I am an easy-going, kind and enthusiastic girl, and I believe that there will be more persons like me.   

This topic reminds me of the situations happening in the train. It is not surprising to see that before the Spring Festival, a large number of passengers crowd into the train, some even with no seats. In such a crowded place, mothers with babies will suffer lots of troubles. To illustrate, when a baby is crying, the mother will have difficulty in calming it down. The baby keeps crying, which may annoy other passengers. Some even shout at the mother, Lady, please dont take your baby with yourself if you cant control him. The crying may lead to constant cruel criticism among people. Nevertheless, there are someone who will help the mother and make funny jokes to stop the crying. There will be someone who will sing songs to make the baby asleep.

Taking my experience in the School Union for example, frankly speaking, most people dont think well of the organization. For their part, the School Union is like a dark place, where students in poor grades fight against each other for good reputation, or something that is beneficial for their awards. Students there try to build up close relationships with teacher, and that will improve their status in the department.

In some cases, we have to admit that, but that is not exactly true. Since I entered college, with the determination to improve myself, I took part in the group. From the small position to the vice chairman today, I have a lot to say. The School Union really empowers me to implement many plans that will promote the establishment of our department. I grasp every chance to build up my character by communicating other students as well as the teachers.

Dont I understand the negative view of the School Union? Yes, I am well aware of that, but I just want to learn much that can not be learned from books. No matter what the other members do, gossiping or joking, I am supposed to be clear about my responsibility, my work. I want to be the best of myself in the best time of my life.

 So just as you can see, even in the worst situations, there will be something that brings us hope and content. This is true that where there is hope, there is life. But only when you have great faith in life and look on the bright side, can you gain the final happiness.

The world may be filled with mean-spirited creeps, but it doesnt trouble much to find the friendly, passionate people who show great interests in the volunteer work and environmental protection. Anyway, look on the bright side and you will realize your dream.

Thanks for your encouragement. Actually I express my feelings after I read one blog in China Daily, but terribly sorry that I forgot noting the name of the author. In fact, I left a space for his name, but just not remember, for something busy. i am really sorry.

When misfortune comes, it is very hard for us to get recovery.

I can understand that, but anyway, we should take a positive attitude towards life.
