Dear Ying Chuan,

I’m the 22 year-old you. Who doesn’t have much income but works hard to make progress and keeps faith about the future. Who tries her best to be vegan in order to make fewer animals suffer. Who usually uses reusable dinner sets. Who always cares about the environment and tries to do better. Who is full with love and kindness.

I promise I’ll keep these behaviors and thoughts above. If I didn’t break my promises when you see this letter: be proud of yourself 

I hope you’ll never give up no matter how many difficulties come to you. Against all odds, we have kept our promise for such a long time. Now there’s nothing that can stop you.

However, if I broke my promise when you see this. Please do not blame yourself. It’s never too late to fix mistakes if you want.

Put everything behind you and focus on what’s coming. You’ll do better than me.

Love,

Ying Chuan

親愛的盈娟

我是22歲的你

是收入不多、努力增長能力、對未來抱持希望的你

是會因為不忍動物痛苦,而盡量吃素的你。

是會勤勞使用環保餐具的你。

是時刻都因環保思維而左右舉動的你。

是充滿愛與善心的你。

我保證自己會持續維繫這樣的思維與舉止。若你看到這封信時,我沒有違背諾言,請為自己感到驕傲。

希望不論你當下的生活遭遇再多困難,都別灰心。

我們為了堅守了對自己的承諾,長久以來排除萬難,現在更沒有什麼難關不過去!

若你看見信時,我不甚違背了諾言。

也請你別自責。

只要有心,亡羊補牢,猶未晚矣。

請放下過去,展望未來。你能做得比我更好

愛你的,

盈娟

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.
