#motivationmondays "Your only limit is you"

"Your only limit is you" from www.blossomlink.me by @0oyukao0

Happy first Monday of the month! I wanted to share this one today since I remembered what was on my mind around this time 4 years ago. It was right after I graduated from college, started my first internship in Tokyo, and visited the Bay Area with friends. Every single thing that happened during that trip seemed so fresh and magical to me: the people I met, the things we talked about, the photos we took.

Although I'm not the brave, young, naive girl I used to be, I am so happy where I am today, and hopeful for what's next. I have learned that the limit is always what you think you can/can't do, and the only way to push your boundaries is by knowing more about what's possible for anyone, and most importantly, for yourself. Right now, I am at the stage where I am absorbing so much to push the boundaries bit by bit (or byte by byte?) everyday. I don't know what's next, but I'm still enjoying the world expanding.

4年前のこれくらいの時期は、東京で大学を卒業したばかりで、初めてインターンをしたり、サンフランシスコに遊びに来たりしていました。その時に見たサンフランシスコは、私にとって魔法のかかった街でした。見るもの、会う人、交わした言葉、撮った写真、全てがキラキラだった。

紆余曲折あったけど、念願叶ってサンフランシスコに来れた今、毎日もがきながら少しずつ世界を広げている感覚があります。あの頃の全てに感動するピュアな自分ではなくなったけど、心地良い成長痛を今は楽しんでいるのかもしれません。
