Today’s Lunch

September 28, 2011 at 2:29 pm Leave a comment

I realized today that I’ve officially lived in Japan for four years now!

I can’t believe I’ve been here that long! Time flies…

Or as my husband would say, I’m getting old…

At least I’ll always be younger than him! Ahahahaha!

*cough* Anyway… it’s been an amazing four years, and Japan will always be my home, but I can’t say that I’m not excited to be returning to my original home, the U.S. this December. There will always be things I like about both countries, and things that I don’t care for about both countries. If there’s one thing I’ve learned during these four years, it’s this:

Everywhere has its good points and its bad points. Everywhere. Nowhere is perfect.

“Home” is wherever you decide it is.

Last but not least, happiness is not something you find in a place, be it a country, city, neighborhood, or that “perfect” house. Happiness is something you find within yourself. It’s not in a place, or things, or money, or a career. If you don’t bring it with you, you won’t find it there.

Okay, I guess that was actually three things, not one. I think I might keel over from so many deep thoughts in one day. On to today’s lunch!

Tofu hamburg, steamed rice, edamame, simmered kabocha (Japanese pumpkin), and half a Japanese pear
