Sometimes I feel very confused and overwhelmed in life.
Don’t we all have those moments? Everything is going along just fine and then BAM! A wave of existential crisis hits you. “Who am I…?” “Why am I here…?”
Well, that sounds more like a case of Alzheimers but you know what I mean.
I know the kind of person I want to be.
I know the sort of things I want to do.
But occasionally, despite all of my best efforts and good intentions, I find myself grappling with confounding questions. It’s moments like these that I thank my lucky stars I live in Japan.
You see, everywhere I turn, I find such powerful truth speaking out to me. Everywhere I look, I see blatant words of wisdom scrawled across signs and T-Shirts. I’ve never known such a profound country. Perhaps it’s based deep down in the roots of Buddhism monks chanting zen… perhaps it’s emanating from the austere nature of Shinto.
Or perhaps… it’s just… Engrish.
Whatever it is… it brings me such clarity.
What the what does that even mean anyway?!? O_o?
