LIVE A LIFE THAT MATTERS

Michael Josephson

SốNG CUộC ĐờI ĐÁNG SốNG

Việt dịch - Trần Lê Túy-Phượng & Trần Đình Hoành

Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end
Sẵn sàng hay không, một ngày nào đó tất cả đều sẽ đến điểm cuối.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
Sẽ không còn bình minh, không còn phút, không còn giờ, không còn ngày.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.
Mọi thứ bạn lượm lặt, dù cất trong kho hay đã quên mất, đều sẽ sang tay người khác.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
Tài sản, danh vọng và quyền lực phù du của bạn sẽ tàn lụi vào hư không.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Bạn có gì, hay ai nợ bạn, cũng thành vô nghĩa.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.
Cuối cùng thì Thù Hằn, Cay Đắng, Bực Tức, và Ghen Tị của bạn cũng sẽ biến mất.
So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire.
Mọi Hy Vọng, Tham Vọng, Kế Hoạch, và Dự Tính của bạn cũng sẽ tiêu tan.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
Thắng hay Bại, đã từng rất quan trọng với bạn, rồi sẽ phai mờ.
It won't matter where you came from, or on what side of the tracks you lived, at the end.
Bạn từ đâu đến, hay đã sống bên phía đường nào, rốt cuộc cũng sẽ thành vô nghĩa.
It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
Bạn đẹp hay thông thái, điều đó sẽ thành vô nghĩa.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
Ngay cả giới tính và mầu da của bạn cũng không thành vấn đề.
So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?
Vậy điều gì có ý nghĩa? Làm thế nào để đo lường giá trị những ngày sống của bạn?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built;
Ý nghĩa không nằm trong cái bạn mua, nhưng trong cái bạn xây;
not what you got, but what you gave.
không nằm trong cái bạn lấy, nhưng trong cái bạn cho.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
Ý nghĩa không nằm trong thành công, nhưng trong tầm quan trọng.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
Ý nghĩa không nằm trong điều bạn học, nhưng trong điều bạn dạy.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.
Ý nghĩa nằm trong từng hành động chân thật, nhân ái, hay hy sinh, làm cho người khác được phong phú, mạnh mẽ, và muốn theo gương của bạn.
What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
Ý nghĩa không nằm trong khả năng, nhưng trong nhân cách của bạn.

What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone.
Ý nghĩa không nằm trong bao nhiêu người bạn biết, nhưng trong bao nhiêu người sẽ thấy mất mát khi bạn ra đi.
What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you.
Ý nghĩa không nằm trong ký ức của bạn, nhưng trong ký ức của những người yêu thương bạn.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.
Ý nghĩa nằm trong “Ai nhớ bạn, về việc gì, trong bao lâu”.
Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
Sống một cuộc đời có Ý Nghĩa, đó không phải là Sự Tình Cờ.
It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
Đó không phải là Hoàn Cảnh, mà là Sự Lựa Chọn.

The author seems to confirm what matters is the impact of oneself on others.
It may be a very valid way to see life.
But to some people, what matters is how they enjoy their life, how they feel it everyday, every hour, minute, second. They would not care much how others think of them. It's another way of seeing life, no less valid than the former.
Depending too much on the trace you leave can cause a tragedy in your life. Following a no care path may cause regrets later.
So which way do you choose?

You're absolutely right. In fact , I post this poem since it contains some of the meaningful way of living our lives but I've never said that there couldn't be another way of enjoying our lives. To be honest , what you have suggested is my actual way of living as I 've never cared about how others think of me or whether I'm right or wrong if I do this or do that . Accordingly , as long as I like or I want to do anything , I surely go for it without caring about others' thinking & I WILL NEVER CHANGE MY WAY OF LIVING. Why? Because this is my life & I live only 1 life plus I'm the only person who is responsible for my wellbeing such that no-one else could intrude my way of living without my permission . Therefore , I see no point to let others inappropriately influence my life or my way of living...

My life dictionary always defines that TREAT OTHERS IN THE WAY I WISH TO BE TREATED. As such , If I treat a someone kindly & nicely & wish to reciprocally receive the same treatment so that our relationship should be up and thrived. However , if all that person brings back to me is unhappiness , feeling of being taken advantage of... , I guess the better way of enjoying my life is to turn my back on that person before the relationship get worse and that my only best bet for sure.

When I was younger, I used to do whatever I want. But now, it seems that I have changed... For example, when I got graduated, I left home to another city, pursueing my career. My mom did not like it at all, she wanted me to stay close to her. But it was my life, my work... and I did what I wanted.
Now looking back on it, I am not sure if I would do the same. Work is only work, I could do very well in another place, another position. Maybe I would not have the best conditions to thrive, maybe I would not advance as far as I have, but I have only one mother and somehow her happiness means a lot to me. Somehow she became more important to me than even myself.
And she's not the only one.
So confusing, right ? But I simply found out that I care about the happiness of some people more than mine.

There's a saying, "If u can't care for yourself, there's no way u can care for others!"

In my perspective point of view, it's good to care for the ones u love before you, but how good of a job can u do....; if u can't even taking care about yourself first.

I don't think there is any problem here ...
The quote you bring is about the ability, what we are discussing is about the will.
And when we talk about the meaning life, what we can do does not matter very much. What we try to do does.
The whole thing boils down to a not so simple question : when you make a decision, when you do something, how do you put your priority ? Your own will/ good or others ?
And on this question, different people have different answers in different time / situation. When I was a little bit younger, the answer was a definite "mine", but now, it's quite different.

Not directly implied the subject matter itself but just a quotation. :angry:
No one can interfere in one's man thinking; but one man's thinking could be interfere with a second opinion! :pp:
