Happy New Year 2023

Happy New Year!

A new year has begun. I wish us a happy new year. May this year unfold many more joys and good things for us.

I’m going to try new things this year to create my own way.

“The last visiting shrines”

By the way, many Japanese people go to the shrine at the beginning of the year as “the first visit to the shrine.”

I like visiting shrines, but I don’t like crowded places. So I did it 2 days before, on December 30. I call this “the last visit” for myself.😁

I like this kind of free style. Because I can be more satisfied in my own way. There are no crowds. And I can also pray in silence for a long time.

I don’t feel there are so many differences between the end-of-year and the beginning-of-year greetings. And I also think the gods in the shrines don’t care about it.

Creating our own satisfaction

I think that we can create our own lives with our own ways to fit our own characteristics. Especially, if we have peculiar characteristics, we don’t need to do the same as many major people.

So, I’m going to make my own life this year, too. I think that it’s not always easy, but it’s always fun for me.

And if we find something well-styled, we will feel more satisfaction in our lives.

So, let’s enjoy this year together! Have good holidays! See you in the next article.
