今天的Toastmaster 講稿,講述有關Ideal life


- -

I’ve heard people complaining about their lives. People of high salary complain about being too busy. Those who’ve got a plenty of leisure time complain about their poorness. I start to wonder, if life never satisfies us, then what makes an ideal life? How do we embrace a cozy and easy life? I believe that all of you have your own vision toward future, now I’d like to share mine with you. First of all, I would like to divide it into 2 parts: single life v.s. marriage. 

Since I am single now, let me elaborate a little bit on the ideal single life to a woman. Put the budget issue aside, an elegant afternoon makes life beautiful and adorable. Imagine it. Walking under the mild sunshine with breezy wind sliding by your face, you walk straight into a well- decorated tea shop. The fascinating smells of coffee and tea are saying “hello” and “welcome” to you. You may choose a relishing sandwich or a waffle with fresh strawberries on it and take a sig of the fragrant tea. Oh, yes, I believe you’ll feel like being in heaven. 

Beside the luxurious afternoon I believe that more people will include traveling in their dream, I do as well. To me, the meaning of traveling is to broaden my horizon and to explore the unknown self. I would like to go to Egypt and explore the myth of pyramid and pharaoh. Sitting beside Seine River in Paris reading a book I like. Fly to Toronto in Canada and experience the marvelous power of Niagara Fall. There’re so many countries and places with different culture and sceneries from Taiwan. Indeed, life will be more than perfect if I can go around the world, well, without budget limits. 


Other tiny demands like adequate sleep (which is very important to a woman), flexible working hours, high salary, nice car and etc. are all included in my requirement toward an ideal single life.


Now, let me move on to the second part – ideal marital life. Although there’re innumerable rumors and saying about how terrifying marriage is, I still can’t stop the illusion of becoming Mrs. Somebody. Being single is cool and jolly, but to me there’s nothing happier and luckier to have someone aside, sharing my happiness and sadness. In winter, just like what Sean has mentioned last time, the person can be the natural heater. In summer, I can share a box of ice cream with him, so that both of us don’t get too much calory and fat. Therefore, personal speaking, I do think a soul mate aside makes life bright.



Talking about life after marriage, the first picture pop out in mind will be “crying kids,” “naughty kids,” “bothering kids,” “house chores,” and “enormous life spent.” But since I’m talking about the “ideal life,” forgive my dreamy fantasy. In my unreal picture of family life, I will have an understanding husband and a kid like angel. They’ll share the house chores with me, so that I don’t have to act like an old, dreadful housewife. Probably my husband and I will make the dinner together in the kitchen and after dinner we’ll take a walk in the park. During the long vacation, we’ll go aboard and reach to the every corner around the earth.


As a matter of fact, people get unsatisfied with life easily and have dream in their mind. However, a dream will stay as a dream if we never work hard to make it come true. Or a dream will come after another if you never get satisfied. Therefore, I believe that the key to an ideal, happy life is your “attitude.” If you’re optimistic, you’ll have the strength to conquer all the frustration, feel contented with what you’ve got and you’re walking right straight toward the life you want.


To be honest, what I want the most is that when I get old, very old, there will be someone still willing to hold my hand and we’ll go to wherever we want, TOGETHER. That’s my ideal life!
