New Year's Resolutions



・ 自分に自信がないから、肩身の狭い思いをすることが多い。せめて努力だけは自信を持つようにする。
・ 努力は、現状と目標を把握して、具体的に、継続的に。
・ 気分が沈むときも、それを受け入れる。行き場を失ったエネルギーを「いい形で」出せるように工夫する。
・ だらだらしない。
・ 構ってくれる人に感謝する。
・ 行動をorganizeする。頭の中だけでなく、紙とペンを使う。



I made New Year’s resolutions at a café near the station on the morning of January 2. Putting any idea occurring to me in a brand-new notebook in blue-black ink refreshed me.

I feel awkward when I reread some of them, but I believe that it will be helpful.

From the notebook
・ In 2006 I sometimes felt uncomfortable because of my incompetence and laziness. I will increase my self-esteem by doing my best.
・ I will set specific goals and make efficient efforts to achieve them.
・ I will accept my own feelings anytime and never let myself down. When I feel depressed, I will try to find the way in which my smoldering energy can be harnessed.
・ I will not waste time.
・ I will be wholeheartedly grateful to everyone who likes and worries about me.
・ I will organize my actions, using not only my mind but also a notebook and a pen.

I will change myself and the world around me, satisfied and proud at the end of the year.

Wishing you all a prosperous New Year.

Happy New Year!!

明けましておめでとうございます。生まれて初めて、初日の出を見にいきました。とってもきれいで、神々しくて、心底感動しました。 ことしはいい一年になりそうです。僕も、皆様の幸せを祈っています。いい一年にしましょうね。

I saw the first sunrise of the year for the firsit time in my life!!! These are some of the photos I took this morning. My friends and I got together on New Year's Eve as in other years, getting tipsy at a local karaoke bar. We went to Suma Beach to see the first sunrise. It was beautiful, heavenly and solemn. I was really impressed and I renewed my resolution for 2007. I wish you all a prosperous and happy New Year!!!
