最近逛街時看到小攤子上有好多別緻的手環,是棉缐混著金屬編的,中間還帶了一顆金色的愛心吊飾,一條才賣兩百多塊,色彩多樣,時髦又可愛。看著看著,突然

想起小時候自己編的手環。還記得有一陣子迷上編手環,編給自己,編給好友,也編給弟弟。從畫草圖開始一格一格仔仔細細的設計,然後各色繽紛的棉線一步一步

被編成自己手繪的圖樣和文字。那通常都不是多精巧的圖樣,因為手工藝不精,甚至字樣還會大小不一。但那是我最珍愛的手環,充滿了心意。後來即使手環日久斷

了,也捨不得丟掉收藏了好久。因為那是自己親手做的體驗。

從小到大到過這麽多國家,幾乎都是和朋友自己規劃行程的。剛回臺灣工作那年,我

進了瑞士精品品牌擔任腕表公關。爲了規劃瑞士巴塞爾世界鐘錶展之行,我花了許多時間上網查詢各種資料,從機票,離展場最近的住宿,到火車票,飲食…等等,

親自打電話到瑞士的旅館確認一行十多人的訂房,那時的我不過是個小女生,卻肩負著帶領媒體和幾位鐘錶界老闆的重任,務求行程舒適順利。這樣一趟規劃下來,

到現在我都還記得許多的細節。

有一年和溫哥華好友相約到巴黎看展,我們各自從臺灣和加拿大出發,然後再到巴黎會合。其中有一天她有私事,

我就自己在巴黎市區走走看看。因爲行程都是即興的,交通,購票當然都沒有先買。我要搭地鐵往羅浮宮不知如何買票,秉著路長在嘴巴上的阿Q精神,用我大學一

年級基本程度法文大膽開口問路人。我想我當時說的是:一張票,往羅浮宮,請(拜托,麻煩)

雖然是這麽片段的字詞,但卻得到路人很熱心的幫忙。不但幫我買了票,他還自己刷了票帶我進月臺,試著用英文指引我如何換車。他說他是一間圖書館的員工,今

天正好放假來拜訪好久不見的朋友,並親切地建議我在這麽短的時間應該怎麽逛羅浮宮最能看到精彩的部份…我們聊了一會,我的車來了,也就道別了,沒有留下彼

此的聯絡方式。但他的熱情和友善,讓我對巴黎人留下很好的印象。我在想,如果早就有人幫我買好票,安排好行程,我什麽都不用問,只要照著安排走,又怎麽會

有這樣偶然愉快的相遇?

人生就像一場game,要自己動手做才好玩。要自己去走,去逛,去規劃,才會發現原來有那麽多選項可以自己選擇。別讓別人經手你的人生了,自己動手玩吧!
