04:28
without having to say a word.
103
253000
2000
而且你一個字都不必說
04:30
It's been proven證明 to me time and time again
104
255000
2000
這一點我已經證實過許多次
04:32
as people have walked up to me this week
105
257000
2000
這星期當人們一次次走向我
04:34
simply只是 because of what I'm wearing穿著,
106
259000
2000
只是因為我穿了什麼
04:36
and we've我們已經 had great conversations對話.
107

112
271000
3000
因為這個星期我在教導自己
04:49
is that it's okay to let go.
113
274000
3000
放手也是好的
04:52
I don't need to get emotionally感情上 attached to these things
114
277000
2000
我不需要眷戀東西
04:54
because around the corner,
115
279000
2000
