There are not many times in my life when I have felt the way I do now. It might actually be the only time that I felt this way.I have such a strong sense of accomplishment. I came to Japan a young woman trying to figure out my life with a basic idea of what I wanted to do. Now I feel like I have a good grasp of life. I leave Japan still a young woman but one that has been financially independent, well traveled and on my own for the last 3 years. Sure many people have been on their own from a much younger age, but for me and my supportive family it was a challenging path. I am finally on my own. And I would have never grown like this before moving across the Pacific Ocean. Alone and on my own with no one to lean on except myself…..well sort of. I met the most AMAZING people here in Japan. I am so grateful that they came into my life.
Thank you for an amazing….almost….three years of my life. I appreciate the great impact that you have made in my life. I will never forget you, ever. See you again.
