不完美 bù wán měi Imperfection

 

céng jīng dào guò jǐ gè dì fāng lǚ yóu

曾经到过几个地方旅游,

I’ve been to a few places in the past,

nǎ lǐ de tiān hěn lán hǎi yě hěn lán

那里的天很蓝海也很蓝,

the sky there were blue, so as the sea,

shēng huó jié zòu hěn màn

生活节奏很慢。

the pace of life was very slow.

nà shí hòu de xiǎng fǎ shì:nà lǐ de rén wú yōu wú lǜ de yí dìng hěn xìng fǔ

那时候的想法是:那里的人无忧无虑的一定很幸福。

My thought then was that, people there must be so happy without a worry in life.

jīn tiān, zài cì zhàn zài zhè yàng yí gè tiān hěn lán hǎi yě hěn lán de dì fāng

今天,再次站在这样一个天很蓝海也很蓝的地方,

Today, once again standing at a similar place with blue sky blue water,

què hái shì gèng xǐ huān wǒ xiàn zài jū zhù de chéng shì hé nà lǐ de shēng huó fāng shì

却还是更喜欢我现在居住的城市和那里的生活方式。

I actually prefer where I am living now and the life style there.

suī rán měi tiān jǐ dì tiě jǐ gōng chē hěn xīn kǔ

虽然每天挤地铁挤公车很辛苦,

Although it’s daunting to have to beat the crowd to take the tube and the bus everyday,

yě yǒu lèi dào chuǎn bú guò qì xiǎng táo zǒu de shí hòu

也有累到喘不过气想逃走的时候。

there were also times I was so tired that I cannot even breath, and just want to run away

dàn shì nà yàng de rì zi guò dé hěn chōng shí

但是那样的日子很过得很充实,

But days like that feels fulfilling,

hé shēn biān de rén zài yí qǐ yě chuàng zào le xǔ duō kāi xīn de xiǎo huí yì

和身边的人在一起也创造了许多开心的小回忆。

with the people around me, we also created many happy little memories.  

Shēn zài qí zhōng wǒ men kàn dào de dōu shì bù wán měi

身在其中,我们看到的都是不完美,

When we are part of it, all we can see are imperfections,

chōu chū shēn lái,cái fā xiàn zhè yàng de bù wán měi qí shí yě hěn hǎo

抽出身来,才发现这样的不完美其实也很好。

Take yourself out of the situation, only then realise that it is also great to have all these imperfections.
