Four months! I have been in Japan for that long and yet, it seems like yesterday when I first landed at Narita. Japan has been reviving my excitement with its vibrancy, so constantly that I lose track of time for there is always something new to take in, always something captivating that awakes all my senses. I have felt this way before, when I first arrived in the U.S. just two years ago, because then it hit me, I was on the other side of the globe! Being placed in an entirely different environment, I could see what I see in a tremendously mindful way as I burst out of my own little bubble, my comfort zone where I used to take things for granted. Here and now in Tokyo, again, I feel so much alive!
I have been trying to do something new every day and the past four months was full of experiences I have never had anywhere else.
