Friend (23) – Falling is Just Another Form of Dancing / 朋友- 跌倒又跳舞

Road, it is born for us to tread on.  For a life time, we flatten and walk on it for countless time.  Yet, when it is uneven, we start to complain about it, and when we trip on it, we grumble on our own bad luck.
Yet, if you are lucky, you board the broad sunny way with pleasant scenery and you say, “well, I created my own road”.  Then, many a times, we step on mud, collide with stones, cross the tough Himalayas, go against the tide of the Atlantic.  And again, this is the time you started to question yourself on the road you are travelling.
The day I nearly slip and fell on a mossy floor along the corridor.  In the midst of panic, I felt I fell with a beautiful stance, and started to understand the fact that a fall can be swift, yet graceful and poise.
Life is filled with swiftly changes and it is a stage with ups and downs.  Rather than complaining it being slippery, why not help things along; have a dancing fall, slide out your steps with a spring, as Spring is not far away from us!

路,它一生下来就被人踩,我们一路踩在它身上,一生一世不知来来去去走过几回。它一不平坦我们就抱怨连天,一打滑就怪自己运气不佳。

如果幸运的话,上了康庄大道,一路上风和日丽,景色怡人,你说路是自己走出来的。但很多时候事与愿违,很不幸地踩到的都是烂泥,碰撞都是石子,跨的是喜玛拉雅山,逆流的是大西洋。这时你又会不竟地问这是一条什么样的路?

那天我差一点在有青苔的走廊上打滑,慌张之余,感觉自己跌倒的姿势蛮美的,领悟出其实跌倒也要跌得优美,跌得韵味,跌得坦然。

人生舞台起起落落,与其埋怨路滑,不如来个顺水推舟,以跳舞的方式跌倒,滑出一个春天,反正春天离我们不远了。
