Enjoying the simple things



Hope everyone is doing well! It’s getting colder and colder here in Hokkaido! Seeing the snow fall gives me a very peaceful feeling!

I recently learned a new word in Japanese called, “物の哀れ” / “mono no aware”.  In simple terms, this means enjoying things in life while you can. I really enjoy being out in nature and the snow gives me sense of peace, but I know it won’t last forever. So I have to enjoy the moment as is.

Wherever you are, I hope you can take time to enjoy simple moments in your life. Things might be hard or difficult but I hope you can find peace in something.
