Let things go

"Nobody loves change, but part of life is learning to let things go." 
Phil Dunphey - Modern Family The Old Wagon 



This is so lovely. The barista gave me free coffee and it says "Otsukaresama" which means you work so hard and we appreciate your hard work. I love Japan so much. スタバのバリスタさんがくれました。とっても嬉しい。日本の「お疲れ様」ってすごくあったかい言葉。

Veronika Decides to Die

"Nothing in this world happens by chance." -Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho 

I read that novel many years ago in Japanese. I am going to read it again in English this time. 「この世の中の全ては偶然には起こらない。」ベロニカは死ぬことにした

His words are inspiring

I was watching TV and happened to watch Steve Job's story last night. 

I found it that his words are very inspiring.

You can't connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path."

"When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, some day you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "no" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something." - Steve Jobs
