表达感恩 PET双语沙龙精彩回顾@12/4 | Show Gratitude

上周四是一年一度的感恩节,感恩节虽然已过,但感恩应该是一种习惯,不仅限于某次或是某天的行为。 2019马上就要过去了,让我们一起来回顾自己和身边的人的美好,谁是你最想感谢的人?你打算如何通过行为去感谢他们呢?
借感恩节提醒大家回顾2019的成就,去欣赏和感激自己以及身边的人事物的美好。 同时想借这个机会,让大家去留意感恩的力量。 日本水研究专家江本胜写的《水知道答案》书里就分享了关于水的研究实验: 同样的两杯水,对一杯水说欣赏赞美的话,在放大镜下水的结晶是非常漂亮的,对另一杯水说坏话,结晶非常丑陋难看。 同样的两株植物,如果我们对一颗进行谩骂和诅咒,很快它就枯萎。 而如果对另一株进行夸奖和赞美,它就生机勃勃。 由此我们可以看出人生是和能量相关的。 看完这本书我马上就在家里的饮水容器贴上感谢,感恩的字样,相信这样能让水变得更有营养。而且给我的启发是:我要为自己产生的能量负责任。 从关注负面的到正面的思维方式上,一个行之有效的方法是来自美国励志演说家安东尼罗宾的方法:人生首要问句。 我会每天提醒自己:我如何更加欣赏身边的人事物的过程? 我会具体地问自己:我今天做了什么让我开心的事情? 让我从无意识地关注问题,指责,评判,抱怨,转到感谢,感激,感恩上边来,有意识地去建立快乐的有质量的人际关系,吸引同频的正能量的人,好好地去关注回报那些对自己好的人。
大家对感谢,感激,感恩的区别理解得很深入。 有朋友举了一个例子,如果酒店的服务生帮你叫了一辆车,你会说Thank you. 如果服务生在大雪天在街上跑了很远的路,等了半个小时帮你叫了一辆车,你会说:Thank you and I am appreciative of your help./I appreciate it. 对他的恩师对他的英语表达的训练和教导,他会说:I am grateful for your guidance. 所以根据付出的时间,精力不同,角色的不同,关系的远近不同,是出于礼貌性的,还是心理,情绪或是精神层次的感谢。在用英文表达感谢时注意用对词哦。 下面付上我的美国mentor 对感谢和感恩的区别分析: Being thankful is to be merely conscious or aware of the actions of another person. Therefore, the words “thank you” and “thanks” have come to hold less meaning for us. We mutter them from the corners of our mouths after someone holds the door open for us or hands us our morning coffee. Too often, saying “thank you” is merely polite behavior. Too often, “thanks” is just an automatic reply. Being grateful is a different experience. Being grateful necessitates that we are first affected by one another. Gratitude then involves a period of reflection, perhaps through writing or thoughtful meditation, in which we allow ourselves enough time to understand our appreciation of this person. True gratitude expresses “thank you” not solely from our mouths but also from our hearts. Gratitude transforms a hardwired response into an intentional discipline.
看到大家打从心底去感谢和感恩那些帮助过自己的朋友,同事和家人,感觉很开心,也很有满足感。 看到自己的小侄女Monica, 还有会员 Janet, Kiwi 特别勇敢地站起来分享自己的观点和故事,突破自己的舒适区,特别为她们感到自豪。 会后大家都表达了对组织者 Alex 满满的喜欢和感激
通过准备这次活动的内容,让我充分地意识到感谢和感激身边的点点滴滴的重要性,特别是在感恩节给朋友发信息就体会到了感恩后所获得得正能量,希望让感恩的态度和言行举止变成一个习惯。
