Don't try so hard to be respectable. Listen to your heart about what you truly believe, even if it makes you look na?ve or sentimental.
不要太用力去得到社會的認可。傾聽你內心真正相信的東西,即使這會讓你看起來天真或傷感。
You can radically change your life when/if you need to. You don't need to keep doing what you have been doing, just because you are in the habit of doing it.
你可以徹底改變你的生活,只要你想去改變。你不需要因為習慣了做一件事,就繼續做下去。
Being friendly and open to meeting new people in random places can lead to cool adventures and friendships. Don't get too comfortable in your present circles of acquaintances.
對在任何地方遇到的陌生人都抱著開放和友好的態度,可能會給你帶來炫酷的經歷和友情。別太陷在你現在的熟人圈子里。
You need less money than you think to survive, so stop obsessing about it, and just spend less.
生活必需的錢比你想象得要少得多,不要迷戀錢,少花就是。
It's OK not to know what you want to do for the rest of your life. Leave space for the completely unexpected to happen.
你不知道自己余生想做什么也OK,剛好為完全未知的事情留出空間。
God loves you even more because you are a bit of a freak. Don't hide your light under a button-down bushel.
如果你有一點瘋狂,上帝會更愛你的。千萬不要掩藏你的才華。
Leave your door without any purpose once in a while and see where the city takes you. Don't just stay on the path between your apartment, work and the gym.
偶爾毫無目的地出去走走,看看你生活的城市能帶你去哪兒。不要固定在家、公司、健身房三點之間。
Hang out with your long-time friends more and contact those with whom you have lost touch. You don't seem to have as many friends as you used to.
多多與多年老友碰面,重新找到失去聯系的朋友。因為你會發現自己沒原來那么多朋友了。
Ambition is overrated. Stop trying so hard to be "successful."
抱負被抬得過高。不要費勁全力只為了所謂的“成功”。
It's a good thing to believe that a utopian society where everyone is treated with dignity and equality is possible and worth working for. Cynicism doesn't make you intelligent -- it just makes you cynical.
相信人人平等、有尊嚴的烏托邦社會可以實現,并愿為實現這一目標而努力是好事。但憤世嫉俗不會讓你變聰明,只會讓你變得憤世嫉俗。
Create art every once in a while. Even though you aren't particularly talented and nobody really loved your 'nude portrait under autumn leaves' the creative process is good for your soul.
偶爾搞搞藝術。就算你沒有特別的才華,就算沒有人欣賞你的“秋天落葉下的裸體自畫像”,創造的過程也能美化你的靈魂。
The next time you hear yourself reminiscing about how you "used to do something," make a plan to do it. Studying dance, carving pumpkins for Halloween, and doing improvisation shouldn't all be thought of in the past tense.
下一次你再回憶起當年“做什么事”的時候,制定一個重新開始的計劃吧。學跳舞、刻萬圣節南瓜、即興表演都不應該存在于過去式中。
Don't just give money, go volunteer somewhere so you can have direct interactions with people. Your life is too antiseptic and it is making you a bit boring.
不要只是捐錢,去某個地方做志愿者吧,這樣你就可以和別人直接互動。你的生活太“防腐”了,你開始覺得有點無聊了吧。
You should be so crazy thankful that you found love with Brad. You spent a lot of time very lonely, never thinking you would find such an amazing guy. Don't let a day go by without remembering how fortunate you are.
找到另一半你絕對應該謝天謝地。你一個人那么久了,哪里會想到你會遇到這么好的人。活著的每一天都要記得你是多么的幸運。
Try a new sport! The routine of cardio and weights just to look decent is getting old. You were an athlete! Get back into swimming and sign up for the race across the East River or take up boxing.
嘗試新的運動!有氧運動和舉啞鈴的慣例已經老套了。你以前可是運動員!重新開始游泳,報名跨河跑步比賽,或是學學拳擊吧。
When did you become such a preppy bore? You used to not be afraid to stand out and it wouldn't kill you to wear something a bit more fashion-forward once in a while.
你什么時候變得這么保守這么無趣?你曾經不怕引人注目的,你也曾偶爾穿上時髦前衛的衣服。
Your parents were there for you, even when you were going through tough times and, frankly, a bit of a brat. They need you now. You will never regret the time you spend with them.
你的父母過去一直支持你,即使在你經歷最難熬的日子的時候,或是你淘氣的時候。他們現在需要你。多和他們在一起,你永遠不會后悔的。
Find ways to be alone in the woods or on the water by yourself. Don't forget how much you value solitude in nature.
想辦法去一個人在森林里或在水上待著。別忘了你有多重視那份在大自然中的孤獨感。
Find a group that has been formed within the last five years and buy a new CD.
找一個5年內成立的樂隊,買一張他們的新CD。
Stop beating yourself up about mistakes that you have made. It's good to be self-critical, but you need to be compassionate as well.
別再為犯過的錯自責了,自我批評雖好,但你也需要有同情心啊。
If you can be a parent to a child of your own then do it! You've always wanted to have a family. If that doesn't work out, be the best uncle to your nephews and nieces. They make you so proud.
如果你可以做父母,一定要做!你一直都想有個家。如果沒做成,那就做侄子侄女的好叔叔好舅舅吧。他們都會讓你驕傲的。
Value every day you have. At 25 I never thought you would live to be 50. Celebrate your life.
珍惜你的每一天。25歲的時候我從沒想到你會活到50歲。慶祝你的人生吧。
