忘懷得失


「先生不知何許人也,亦不詳其姓字,宅邊有五柳樹,因以為號焉。閒靜少言,不慕榮利。好讀書,不求甚解;每有會意,便欣然忘食。性嗜酒,家貧不能常得。親舊知其如此,或置酒而招之。造飲輒盡,期在必醉。既醉而退,曾不吝情去留。環堵蕭然,不蔽風日;短褐穿結,簞瓢屢空,晏如也!嘗著文章自娛,頗示己志。忘懷得失,以此自終。」─節錄自「五柳先生傳」(陶淵明)
 
真是的,想去找「忘懷得失」的出處,結果又是五柳先生傳…我跟「晏如」這兩個字還真是剪不斷的孽緣啊,哈
 
這三年的工作,總是在得與失之間掙扎,雖然是知道放下執著的重要,但是,對於得與失的結果總是難以釋懷…不斷斤斤計較於自己所得到或失去的實質利益,不論是嗔怒皆落於下乘,平白的陷於情緒泥淖中無法脫身。「忘懷得失」這四個字一直是在腦中某個角落的,但是,對我而言一直是個難以企及的層次…別的不說,生活的開支就是一個不斷得與失的過程,說要真的不計較談何容易?!就算不能開源,但節流總是要錙銖必較的…
 
不過這幾天突然發覺,雖然我現在還沒有辦法到達忘懷得失的層次,但我卻認清了一個現實:只要有心去學習,「得」的結果是無所不在的。事實上,雖然就我對棒球比賽的理解,早已得知很多結果是人無法控制的,四成上壘率的OBP魔人,總是會有出局的時刻;人生在很多面向也是相同的,能從過程中得到的樂趣,遠比結果是否成功有益於人的成長,一蹴可及的登峰造極總是蒙蔽人心的毒藥。只是,現在的我還是無法拋卻結果的甜美,那麼,姑且就先告訴自己,逆境的收穫吧!
 
勇於面對逆境、面對挫折、面對失敗,只要有心,披荊斬棘的每一刀,你看到的不是體力的流失,而是前進的新步伐。
