I will never forget June 11, 2006, one of the most unforgettable days in my life. It was my first day in America. I was wearing my favorite lucky red shirt and couldn't stop smiling during the flight because I was so excited. I gazed with rapture at the magnificent ocean view through the window of the plane. “Oh America, wait for me! I will be there soon!” When I got off the airplane that had crossed the Pacific Ocean from Tokyo to arrive at LAX, I saw my newlywed husband and Roy, one of his relatives, standing there with smiles. I took a deep breath, “It smells like freedom!” I said to my husband and everybody laughed. My husband and I left Japan where we had lived for more than ten years, and the lucrative jobs we had in Tokyo. We came to the U.S. with curiosity, confidence and nothing else.
You've got to find what you love.
And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers.
Your time is limited,原文はこちらで読めます。
so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma ?
which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.
