《The best gift I ever survived》是由丝德茜·克莱默(Stacey Kramer)在TED的一个视频演讲，从一份礼物开始阐明一个道理，那就是“当你面对意料之外的避之不及和前途未卜的事，不妨就把它看成一份礼物。”
[The best gift I ever survived]
Imagine, if you will, a gift. I'd you picture in you mind.
It's not too big. About the size of a golf ball.
So in vision what it looks like all wrapped up.
but before i show you what's inside.
i will tell that's going to do incredible things for you.
It will bring all of your family together.
You will feel loved and appreciated like never before.
And reconnect to friends and acquaintances you haven't heard from in years.
Adoration and admiration will overwhelm you.
It will recalibrate what's important in your life.
It will redefine, your sense of spirituality and faith. You'll have a new understanding and trust in you body.
You'll have unsurpassed vitality and energy.
You'll expand your vocabulary, meet new people and you'll have a healthier lifestyle.
And get this, you'll have an eight-week vacation of doing absolutely nothing.
You'll eat coutless gourmet meals. Flowers will arrive by the truck load. People will say to you: "You look great! Have you had any work done?" And you'll have a life-time supply of good drugs.
You'll be challenged, inspired, motivated and humbled.
Your life will have new meaning: peace, health, serenity, happiness, nirvana.
Fifty-five thousand dollars. And that's an incredible deal.
By now, I know you're dying to know what it is and where you can get one.
Does Amazon carry it? Does it have the apple logo on it? Is there a waiting list?
This gift came to me about five months ago.
And looked more like this when it was all wrapped up. Not quite so pretty.
And this. And then this(A picture after operation).
It was a rare jam. A brain tumor. Hemangioblastoma.
The gift that keeps on giving. And while I'm ok now.
I wouldn't wish this gift for you. I'm not sure you'd want it. But I wouldn't change my experience. It profoundly alterned my life in ways it didn't expect. In all the ways I just shared with you.
So the next time youare faced with something that's unexpected, unwanted and uncertain, consider, that's just may be a gift.
