YES, I AM CHANGING《是的,我正在改变》
– By Rashmi Trivedi– 作者:印度诗人拉什米·特里维迪 (Rashmi Trivedi)  – 翻译:竹官/庆生
Days slip into weeks, weeks turn into months and months transform into years. Calendars are changing and so am I.
Yes, I am changing. After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children, my friends, now I have started loving myself.
Yes, I am changing. I just realised that I am not “ Atlas ” and the world does not rest on my shoulders.
Yes, I am changing. I now stopped bargaining with poor vegetables and fruits vendors. After all, a few rupees more is not going to burn a hole in my pocket but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.
Yes, I am changing. I pay the autowalla / cabbie and walk away without waiting for the change. The extra money might bring a smile on his face. After all he is toiling much harder for a living than me.
Yes, I am changing. I stopped telling the elderly that they have already narrated that story many times. After all, the story makes them walk down the memory lane and relive the past.
Yes, I am changing. I have learn not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. After all, the onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.
Yes, I am changing. I give compliments freely and generously. After all its a mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me.
Yes, I am changing. I have learnt not to bother about a crease on my shirt or a spot on my skirt. After all, personality speaks louder than appearances. 、
Yes, I am changing. I walk away from people who don’t value me. After all, they might not know my worth, but I do.
Yes, I am changing. I remain cool when someone plays dirty politics to outrun me in the rat race. After all, I am not a rat and neither am I in any race.
Yes, I am changing. I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. After all, it’s my emotions that make me human.
Yes, I am changing. I have learnt that its better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. After all, my ego will keep me aloof whereas with relationships I will never be alone.
Yes, I am changing. I’ve learned to live each day as if it’s the last. After all, it might be the last.
Yes, I am changing. I am doing what makes me happy.
After all, I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to me.
And I am loving the new me!
日成月,月成年。光阴荏苒,我也在变。
是的,我正在改变。我爱我的父母、我的兄弟姐妹、我的配偶、我的孩子、我的朋友,而现在,我把自己也加到了里边。
是的,我正在改变。我才意识到了我不是巨人大力神“阿特拉斯”,地球不是得靠我的肩膀作为支点。
是的,我正在改变。我不再与那水果摊贩你讨我还。毕竟,再多几枚卢比也成不了什么热钱,但它们却也许能帮助这个可怜的家伙,将他女儿的求学路更向前铺展。
是的,我正在改变。我给出租车司机付费后马上走开,不再等找零钱。额外的收入可能会让他脸上露出笑容,毕竟他的生计要比我艰难。
是的,我正在改变。我不再告诉老人,同样的故事他们已经讲过了很多遍。毕竟,这个故事让他们走上了记忆的小径,将他们最珍重的往事重新体验。
是的,我正在改变。即使我知道哪个谁他错了,我也学会了不去纠偏。毕竟,没必要每个人都完美,我也更珍惜大家能悦色和颜。
是的,我正在改变。我大方慷慨地送出对他人的称赞。毕竟,送出的赞美不仅对接受者而且对我来说,都使我们觉得阳光灿烂。
是的,我正在改变。我已经学会不再烦恼于衬衫上的一小折痕或裙子上的一小斑点。毕竟,一个人性格的魅力远胜于其外观。
是的,我正在改变。我远离那些不怎么重视我的人。毕竟,他们可能并不知道我的价值,而我自有地方将这价值实现。
是的,我正在改变。即使有人为了在竞争中超越我而玩弄肮脏的政治手段,我也会处之泰然。毕竟,我不是小人也不屑参与其中。
是的,我正在改变。我正在学习不再为自己的情绪感到难堪。毕竟,我的情绪是我作为一个活生生的人的体现。
是的,我正在改变。我明白了,与其断绝一段关系,不如放弃一点自负。毕竟,自负会让我冷淡,而和其他人相处我才永远不会孤单。
是的,我正在改变。我学会了把每一天都当作人生末日来过。 毕竟,这的确可能是最后一天。
是的,我正在改变。 我正在做让我快乐的事情。毕竟,我要为我的幸福负责并愿意为此买单。
而我,正为一个新的自己点赞!
