  1. About lost and found~~~

    I lost a sense of freedom,
    the freedom to move about without a period of deliberation.
    A loss of seeing a person’s smile, an uplifting sign for me.
    The loss of hugging old friends or new found friends without fear of contracting a deadly disease.
    A loss of acting on the spur of the moment, going where I want to go,
    doing want I want to do.

    But through these losses, I have found something truly amazing…
    that I can endure hardships and move on.
    To accept what can’t be changed,
    and to try my hardest to push limits as far as possible.

    What is life but not for the living?
    Loss is a motivation for finding the gains, the blessings, in one’s life.
