有一隻小狗問媽媽:「什麼是幸福?」
媽媽回答說:「幸福是你的尾巴!」
小狗聽了之後心想:「幸福是我的尾巴,那很簡單啊!」
於是牠追著自己的尾巴,試圖找到幸福,但是追得團團轉,卻怎麼也追不著!
小狗眼冒金星的問著媽媽:「為什麼我追不到幸福?」
媽媽告訴牠:「你別追著你的尾巴跑啊,這樣永遠也追不到。幸福既然是你的尾巴,只要你昂首闊步向前走,幸福就會跟著你。」

對大多數人來說,幸福與財富其實就像小狗的尾巴一樣,你愈是想追到它,愈是追不到。愈渴望,幸福與財富就離你愈遠。

也许我太被动,不善于争取,只会珍惜。
但是我相信幸福是尾巴。如果我需要追着你跑,那你就不是我的幸福。

There was this little puppy asking his mum “What is happiness?”
The mother dog answered “Happiness is your tail.”
From then onward, the little puppy start to pursue his happiness – by running after his tail. He run and run and run, but he can never catch up with it.
He got so frustrated that he asked his mum “Why can’t I catch my own happiness?!”
The mother dog answer “Why are you running after your tail? You can never catch it in this way. All you need to do is go forward, and your happiness will follow you everywhere.”

To a lot of people, happiness and wealth is just like the tail of that little puppy, not realising, the more you try to pursue after it, the more you will never be able to catch it. The more you desire for it, the further the happiness and wealth will gets away from you.

Perhaps I am too passive and lack of the fighting spirit, all I can do it to cherish.
But I believe that happiness is a tail. If I need to chase that tail around, that tail is not my happiness.
