私の宝物

BOOM! Just hit 7,777 tweets on Twitter!










As celebration, a slightly sentimental Nana-related post and maybe a bit silly. I do apologize. But...

I am not sure why I didn't think about this before, but the other day I realized how perfectly Takaramono expresses my current situation and feelings. I guess I found the treasure box I'd lost, eh? This realization was so sudden and so powerful that I cried (yes, I am a wimp orz). I have to say I really love how Nana shares so many of the same values with me, which is -again- one of the many reasons that make her music so special to me. This definitely brings new meaning for Nana singing this as the final song before encore at LIVE UNION for me.

During my life I have made many special friends from everywhere around the world, but due to moving to different countries so much, I also say many farewells and this has never been easy for me.  And again, I did the same when I left for Japan, maybe even more extremely than before since now I am so far away. I left behind a lot in order to be here today. This makes me feel lonely sometimes but I try to remember though, that in truth, everyone is always with me. I am always enveloped by everyone's feelings no matter where I am, and the same goes for them. .... If you realize, just nearby here, are stars that stretch on endlessly, because beyond the dazzling light, everyone is right there. 

My dreams have always been very important to me and this has always made me fight really hard to make them come true, the biggest and hardest of which so far, was coming to study in Japan. I couldn't have made it on my own though - it's because I know there are all these people cheering me on from afar, that I was able to set off on my journey.

There is also another reason why I am so adamant about following my dreams, especially about coming to Japan, which I don't talk about that much I suppose. I have some very dear friends and loved ones, who for some reason or another, have ended up in situations or made choices that made/make it impossible or difficult for them to make their own dreams come true. I can't do much for them, which makes me really sad, and because of this I decided I would work even harder to fulfill my dreams so that maybe these people could experience it through me if nothing else. I am not sure if they will be able to appreciate this approach, but I like to think I'm off to grant everyone's wishes. It's the only thing I can do. This makes it very important for me to succeed.

Lastly, making people smile has always been very important to me. I think being in Japan has humbled me greatly, since all the difficulties and obstacles I've had to face in the past few months have made me appreciate smaller and simpler things much more than before. As much as the difficulties have caused me frustration, I am grateful for this new quality in me. I can honestly say that every time I see a friend's, or even anyone's, smile that's overflowing importantly, it truly is a treasure to me.

I will keep striving forward and continue singing songs! Zutto, zutto!







Hey everyone, remember when we first met? 
I've become stronger since that day.
