[Little Less ‘Happy-Go-Lucky’]

 The term ‘happy-go-lucky’ means to be happily nonchalant/carefree (as stated in freedictionary.com). A happy-go-lucky person would not be vexed in stressful situations as he/she happily trusts on what luck will bring forward. Even though this type of lifestyle might sound enticing to some, it will not be fruitful in the long run. Being cheerful and happy about life in general is a great way to perceive life, but being irresponsible and fully reliant on luck is not how one should deal with life. There are some things that depend completely on ‘luck’, but most of the things that happen to you is mostly due to your actions. Being completely carefree can bring forth negative consequences which will affect others but mostly affect you. Therefore it is better to live a cheerful and happy life, but not a completely carefree and irresponsible one.

【少些「聽天由命」】

聽天由命通常意義上指聽任事態自然發展變化,不做主觀努力的意思。誠然,一個聽天由命的人在生活壓力很大的時候能夠相對放鬆,因為他們相信上天自有安排。雖然這樣的生活觀可能聽起來很逍遙,讓人嚮往,但是這並不利於人的長遠發展。開心和樂觀固然好,但是這不意味著我們可以消極等待,不負責任,不去努力。的確,有些事情可能的確是運氣使然,但是生活中絕大部分事情都是我們可以積極爭取獲得改變的。聽天由命有時會帶來很壞的結果,有時不僅會影響你,更會影響其他人。因此,讓我們多一分積極爭取,少一分聽天由命,做自己命運的主人!
