好久沒打羽球了,打起羽球來給我太多感觸,回憶在心中翻騰。
小時候父親帶我去打球時,總是嘟著一張不情不願的臉,隨著年紀增長忙於升學壓力,終於有個正當偷懶的藉口,而大家也忙於應付日復一日的壓力,疏於照顧自己的身心,直到不得不正視。
年幼叛逆的我,可能從未想過自己會是多麼想念打羽球,多麼享受這項運動的樂趣。以及,多麼渴望能與父親再打一次球!
逝者如斯、而未嘗往也。
只能珍惜每個當下吧!

前年同事找我打羽球,也讓人感觸良多,翻了過去的日記卻只有英文,大概是用中文寫私密的回憶感到太害羞,想試試用日文寫又覺得太難而放棄了…。

My Memories of Badminton
Yesterday, I played badminton with my colleagues. I remember when I was young, I often played badminton with my father. He was a member of the badminton club in his office. So he brought my brother and me to the court at his workplace, and taught us how to play badminton. Since I preferred sedentary activities, like reading books or playing computer games at that time, I felt that I was unwillingly forced to practice badminton. When I reached to the age of increasing academic pressures, I didn't play badminton for a long time. However, yesterday my colleagues invited me to play badminton after work. Finally, after many years I had the chance to play it again. Surprisingly, I found that my body still remembered how to react, how to swing the racquet. On the other hand, because of a lack of exercise, my muscles were so weak. Sometimes, I could not run fast enough to catch the ball. Even so, I felt I was nimble enough to play decently. All thanks my parents who gave me the opportunity to experience a rewarding exercise. It also reminded me of the memories of playing badminton with my father. The childhood's memory became so overwhelming. I really want to play badminton with my father once again. Unfortunately, my father is old now, and not fit enough to do intense exercise anymore. Suddenly, a kind of sadness came to my mind. Why was I so reluctant to play badminton at that time? I wished I could have presented a better attitude at that time.

But I comforted myself and I realized should not dwell in the past anymore. Though my father might not be able to play badminton with me, he can still do other exercises with me. Now, it is my turn to accompany with him. And this time I hope to give him a happy memory.
