Life is so good



I hope your Christmas season has been absolutely beautiful in every way. I hope it's been full of all of your favorite things, full of the magical chaos of holiday hustle and bustle, and the magical stillness of peace and quiet. I hope that if it hasn't been the best season, you start today and make this the merriest week of all.
I hope this week, you get to be surrounded by those who love you the most, in the ways no one else can. If that's not an option, I wish you lots of phone dates, group texts, and facetimes with hot cocoa. I hope that no matter where life has you celebrating this year, it is magical.
I hope that this week, you do what you want to do. That you say "no thank you" to the pressures of others' expectations. That you say" boy, bye" to feeling guilty for your Christmas looking different than someone else's. Your cookies don't look pinterest-perfect? Bet they're still delicious. Your kids getting lots of gifts instead of the minimalist list of four floating around the internet? Girl, bring it. I hope you find the magical space of what works for you, and you celebrate in the ways that make you the happiest.
I hope you keep a fire burning in your heart that remembers what all of this is about. I hope you slow down and savor it. I hope you meditate on it. I hope you read the Christmas story as if it is the first time you've ever read it. I hope you go above and beyond in throwing love all over your people.
I hope you allow yourself some wonder this Christmas. That, as this crazy year comes to a close, you allow yourself to believe there is still good in this world. That you allow yourself to believe there is still magic in the world. If there is any magic left to be found, it exists at Christmastime.
I hope you choose to be happy instead of stressed. I hope you remember that your people love you, and they are not worried about gifts. They understand that this year has been a little tough, and that your bank account isn't looking the best it's ever looked. That $5 gift you picked out for them is going to bring them so much joy, because it's from you.
I hope that if Christmas is hard for you this year, you tell someone. That you pick up the phone and let someone into the darkness with you. I hope you give joy the effort. That you say no to isolation.
I hope every single hour brings small, unexpected joys. I hope you delight in the Christmas lights, in peppermint mocha coffee, in the laughter of little kids waiting to meet Santa.
I hope your days are merry and bright, full of love and light and magic and cheesy movies and Christmas songs and eggnog and gingerbread. I hope you laugh at Will Ferrell parading around Central Park in yellow tights, that your heart swells when Linus reads the Christmas story, and that you plants seeds of wonder and magic that will bloom well into 2018.
I hope this Christmas is not a penny short of magical. That, years from now, when you look back on this year, you'll remember it as the very best. I hope you feel the happiest you've felt all year long.

大都市生活感觉累

20161211日开始记录自己每天的睡眠时间,到今天58日两个月时间了。发现自己每天需要的睡眠时间是7-8个小时,睡觉时间有保证了每天的精气神确实不一样了。而以前的自己是睡眠时间不足,晚上睡的很晚看手机刷微信、看视频,睡觉时还要听听学习的录音,第二天起不来要靠闹钟闹多次,白天精神状态不好、晚上到家倒精神好了。
为什么大都市生活的人感觉累?第一,睡眠时间不足,形成了坏习惯-晚睡早起。到现在我觉得自己累了,一看就是睡眠时间少六个小时,感觉找时间补觉中午休息15分钟,或者找个周末补一周的觉多睡一两个小时,学会慢下来做进步型选手,别太急。
第二,做着自己不喜欢的工作,其实核心是收入太少。不够我们在单位附近租住一个更好的房子(住得远)我们普通人没钱在大城市买房、导致上班时间长挤地铁、公交、开车堵,对自己心情的消耗太严重。原来喜欢通过旅游去逃离钢筋混泥土堵车雾霾的北京,现在喜欢安静的看书、码字,向内探求。开车堵车听录音最近听《明朝那些事》荔枝FM、喜马拉雅,听着喜欢的东西反正是堵车就没那么着急了;周末上课不需要开车办事的情况就坐地铁,路上能听听音乐、看书、看电影视频、写字观察人群等高效利用时间。

第三,没有目标和方向,阶段性的迷茫很正常,最近换了三个行业才发现原来行业的好,最早从事防水行业时还瞧不起这个行业不好意思跟别人说虽然公司是上市公司行业龙头,现在发现这个行业有它独特的优势,没有移动互联网那样只有第一的形成垄断,就建筑行业来说,净化器行业已经形成壁垒、雨水收集行业规模小、消防行业地方保护严重难以向全国扩张。这次回到防水行业,打算至少再干四年就满十年了,觉得这歌行业还是蛮好的,赚到钱很多事情慢慢就能实现了比如读MBA
