To love myself is precious for me because sometimes I forget myself with love.
Sometimes I forget to take a rest because I concentrate 1 thing too much to eat anything and to drink anything.
I learn how to love myself day by day.
To take a rest for a while is good time to love myself.
These days, I tried to take a FOOT BATH after my house working.
I soak my feet on the bucket with hot water about a half of hour and I cannot move for a while.
I have "WIND" & "FIRE" elements of my character so I always move and think without stable condition.
But I need to take "WATER" elements to ground by myself so FOOT BATH is great time for give myself with love.
After taking a foot bath, I can feel so comfortable and warm inside of my body.
During foot bath, I cannot move on my chair and I don't do anything too much.
Also YOGA and Meditation time can give me stable & calm energy to concentrate my breath every day.
To love myself is my lesson through my life, I think.
To love myself can love others more and better than before.
Everyone has LOVE inside of human beings, I believe.
But we are not taught how to love and to be loved anywhere in this world.
So we are learning how to love and to be loved through our life in any human's relationship, aren't we??
My peace of heart can give me so wonderful energy inside naturally.
And sometimes I look back to myself how to react & behave to others and I can learn how to do my action with benevolence better today than yesterday.
Just I am doing my best as I am today.
How are you today??
Can you feel your peace of heart enough??
I wish that your beginning of TODAY is filled with peace of heart as much as possible to start NEW DAY.
Many things around us happen to our life every day but you can keep your peace in heart by your stable condition of mind, I think...
Anyway have a peaceful day!!
Two third of this month in 2017 has already passed to connect next month day by day...
Enjoy your life with smile & love as much as possible, because life is too short to look back, isn't it??^^
Today David went to a library to borrow some movies.
One movie of them is Swedish movie of short movies.
He is very interested in the movie and we started to watch it together as usual.
But for me ,it was not interested at all and it is boring.
We watched it for a while but finally we stopped watching it in the middle.
David thought that the movie might be more interesting when he checked it in the library.
But is was not so much.
So we started to watch another movie together.
Anyway the previous movie of Swedish short movies were very strange for me and I couldn't understand the good point at all.
I am so sorry for David....><
Today David & I visited his friend who lives at Portland in Oregon.
I met him about 2 years ago for the first time and I became to like him naturally.
David & he knows each other for many years and he is kind & generous for us.
After we stayed at Astoria, we went to his place by driving a car to stay his place.
To staying his place is the second time & to see him was my pleasure today but I was a little nervous to see him again.
Because when I met him for the first time, David & he started to talk very quick speed of native English and I couldn't understand their conversation less than 10% at that time.
But after to be David for a while, my ears became to train to listen to his English day by day and today's seems to be a TEST how much I can listen to their conversation of normal speed in English.
So I started to listen to their talking carefully and I am so relieved to know that I could understand what they were talking mostly at this time!!
And we wen to take a walk around his home and it was nice time for all of us.
His friend was very kind to us as usual and he took us a healthy cafe for dinner.
And yesterday was David's birthday and he said to us, "This is my treat tonight!" when we tried to pay our foods.
David looked so surprised at his offer that he didn't do that thing to David before and this was the first time!
But just we were so grateful for his offer that we said to him, "Thank you for your treat & kindness!" with smile.
We didn't expect him to treat our dinner at all but I felt that it is his expression of love & friendship for us.
At the healthy café, we had a nice time together for a while...A LOT!
And to talk to David's friend is like unlimited and we kept talking so much.
I am so happy that I could understand their conversation better than before and sometimes I could join their talking by my English.
They are my ENGLISH teacher and they are so kind to me that maybe they talked slower than usual & used easier English than normal for me...but I felt relieved to be able understand their English today anyway...^^
I became to like him more & better than before.
To understand David's friend is my pleasure and I really love this visit with David again...
Also his friend & I have a common habit of YOGA and it is important for us in our daily life now.
But anyway, I am very happy to watch David's happy smile with his friend today A LOT!^^
Friends of David are very wonderful people usually and I can become to like them after meeting & talking them always.
Today we woke up later than usual but it was cloudy & chilly outside to get out from our home.
So we had a nice time at home for a while.
But I wanted to take a walk so I offered David to go for a walk somewhere.
He though that something new place for me to take a walk today.
And then he brought me "Discovery Park" and this park is familiar for us.
But today, we parked another location to take a walk at different way and we could feel the different & new feeling at the same park.
This is our memorial park to decide to marry each other and we could enjoyed watching a great view from the seaside with cold wind.
Just a little bit, we could find blue sky above us but our minds became so clearer than before.
And then we came back to his car and he suddenly took me another park which I really wanted to visit with David.
The park was "Olympic Sculpture park" and it was very artistic & wonderful view near the seaside at downtown Seattle.
Many people looked to enjoy watching a great view near the beach & wonderful sculptures at each park with someone & dogs and also we had a nice time together.
To explore new places together & enjoy a great time of walking can bring us pure & clear mind each other.
To feel the nature is our favorite thing and we really love taking a walk.
This week is very special for David because from the next Monday (1st of February) he are going to start a new training at new position.
He seemed to be exciting for it but at the same time he is thinking about it all the time.
I want him to feel relaxation in his holidays as much as possible just before his new beginning at work.
So I just want him to enjoy his holidays as he wants.
I cook for him to let him feel relaxation in peaceful mind at home as well as possible and it is my pleasure.
To heal his body & mind by my cooking is my fun & enjoyable task every single day.
To eat organic foods as much as possible means to make our body & mind at stable & peaceful condition every day.
I just keep cooking for him with LOVE & compassion to let our daily life keep in peace with benevolence.
To eat well on healthy organic diet is our first priority in our marriage life because we want to enjoy our life longer together.
To laugh each other & to love more and better are our pleasure...^^
Anyway today has passed so quickly that we will never forget today's fun & smile each other.
To pile such a wonderful day will be one part of our history day by day...
I appreciate with David's love for me today, too...and I am so lucky to be with him every day.
So I am doing my best to love him more and more!
昨夜、Davidと一緒に、"face of love"という映画を見た。
もし、時間がある方は、この”face of love"を鑑賞してほしい。
David picked this movie "the birdcage" at library to watch together.
He told me it is his favorite movie and it is very very interesting.
The story and all actors were very interesting and acted well.
David told me how this movie is great again and again.
We enjoyed to watch this movie together and laughed at it many times.
His favorite point is the mixture of culture whcih have completely different worth and priority in life.
But finally they can understand each difference and it can be a happy end.
Anyway we like watching movie together and David recommend this movie so much.
So if you have some time to watch this movie, please check it out!!
At 1:23 a.m. I was born on 5th November in 1974, it was 40 years ago from today.
I have no idea how my life is going on when I was a child.
I was born in the middle of sisters and two sisters are different from my character at all now.
But we are similar of personality to have a comedic part of character each other and all of my family has it, too.
It is nice personality to enjoy each life with smile & positive comedic side of life, I guess.
Sometimes I was hit by a heartache time accidentally and it moved my life so huge.
And by many happenings in my life could make my life now, and I can appreciate all of them now finally.
Not only happiness & joy but also grief & sorrow created my life for now.
And all of my experience needed to make KEIKO as I am and I have never regret of my life.
How about your life?
Do you have any regret & repentance in your past of life?
I don’t think that anyone doesn’t need to have them at all in life.
All happenings may occur to you when they need to happen at that time by GOD’s trick.
Sometimes some happenings was so terrible & severe that you might feel not to accept the reality then.
But we can overcome all happenings in life somehow by self or someone’s support for better way.
I believe that GOD never give any difficulties not to overcome.
And all difficulties include some homework to overcome by each effort & wisdom somehow.
After overcoming them, we can grow up better & more than we were before, I guess,
My life in last 40 years had a so much painful difficulties but now I can feel to overcome them by many people’s support.
Moreover I can feel gratitude of whole happenings, even difficulties, to connect with my present life.
Without a tiny happening, I am not who KEIKO is right now, I really feel.
And all my lifetime can keep moving my life to enjoy my life with pleasure & benevolence from now on.
I couldn’t live my life by myself at all.
I was supported & helped by precious family & kind friends in this world and I really appreciate all of their love & generous kindness.
So I want to live to express my love in return of their love for me somehow in this world from today, too.
I think that energy of LOVE can give & take and the wonderful circulation can bring us much more LOVE inside each….
Love energy has unlimited power to make this world in peace for better way, I believe.
This message is like my declaration on my 40’s years old birthday today.
To say this by myself, I am going to live by my own way of thinking and I can.
To believe my faith strongly with passion is essential for me and I got a nice partner to live together.
It is my husband DAVID and he gives me so much love deeply & great generosity always and I am so grateful for all of him.
With his amazing support & love for me ,I can live how I said today by this blog.
From today, on my 40th birthday, I have no idea what will happen to my life by GOD’s trick.
But I want to cherish my life every single day until death.
I don’t know when I will die in the future, anyone doesn’t know the limit of life at all.
So I just I want to enjoy my limited life with benevolence & peaceful heart by following my honesty & sincerity.
Only what I can do in my life in return for my given life as a token of my gratitude from my bottom of heart…
At Nagoya in Japan, my 1 Day Detox program will be open atufcally by my friends' cooperation.
I tried to be open my YOGA program before but it is only YOGA & lunch or tea time,
②YOGA&tea time with sweets
But next month, I made a plan for 1 day DETOX & YOGA for someone who interested in it simply & easiily.
I like DETOX & YOGA so much.
And the organic cafe (薬草labo棘) has a wonderful atmosphere by my friends' LOVE.
We worked at YOJOEN before and we got closer friends there.
After our graadiation each at different timing from YOJOEN, our hearts are very closer than before, I think.
We got married at each special partner and we changed a lot for last 5 years.
But our friendship will never change or develping more than before.
David know their care & all of her family and he loves the cafe & all of them so much.
And my 1 day DETOX & YOGA program will be open at this timing with their kindness & great energy again.
I really appreciate with their open hearts and I am so happy to make it plan to organize this program together.

If you can feel "Well-being" in your life , you must be happy today.
"Are you happy today?"
Can you answer "YES" to this question immidiately??
I guess that somebody can say "Yes" but feel a little complains of unsatisfactions inside.
And someoen feel that most part of life may be fullfilled with happiness.
Not to concentrate with your lack of life but to find your content of heart, it is easy to feel happy today.
And "What is your purpose in your life??"
I think that life has no purpose but process of this moment continuously...
Sometimes you may feel "OOO is my purpose in my life" , like a mission.
But is it possible that all of your time in life can cotribute toward the purpose always??
I think that our existence is made from LOVE itself.
Maybe our DNA of cells is determinded to prosper our descendant but it's not be a ultimate purppose in life, I believe.
To express your love from pure heart need to live and everyone needs to be loved as you love.
And I think everyone worth to be loved by someone special.
In the past , before I met David, I tried to find to love someone special forever.
But mostly I failed and I almost tended to give up to find.
But fortunately , God brought us to meet.
We are both "CRAZY" and God knows we are good conbination to love each other.
And now we are leaning how to love each other day by day.
And every day is the process and it will never end after our bodies pass away in the future.
There are so many ways to express your love for someone.
It's a very unique & perticuliar way and it can't compare with other's love at all.
Love is feeling and it is impssible to show apparentely.
But we can express own LOVE somehow by words ,actions and thoughts.
To give & take LOVE will enrich your love , I think.
You know, rabbits can die easily without LOVE.
If you can feel LOVE from someone today, you would enjoy your life each day.
And it will continue forever and ever, because your soul will alive eternally...
I wish you can enjoy your life today and also tomorrow with smile & LOVE...
I was born and grow up in Japan.
And it was normally econnomic world and it has common worth to own more & new with comparison usually.
So little by little , the worth seems the most important in our life, and most people tend to own more and more.
And economic desire is no limitation.
If you get a new car, but soon your want another one or newer one later.
But our true satisfaciton can not filled with any materials in this world, I think.
So we need to have or own somthing at some level which you can feel enough without comparison with others.
And we discover to your own worth & priority in your life without social accpeted idea.
Without your own priority , you will float by other's accepted idea all the time and you can not feel enough forever.
I learned this fake preconceived notion by Yoga & Buddhism's teaching little by little.
And I have no interest in normal accomplished idea to focus inner peace every day.
Around our world , many terrible things happen every day and it seems to continue.
It may be reality but I don't want to pour in such a minus thing.
Only positive & plus things , I try to find in my life to feel happy in my mind as much as possible.
And not the worth of economic idea but mind's & heart's content , I want to worth on...
So naturally , every normal day will be happy with satisfaction & content always.
I don't think that " I want ～ more and more" at all.
Because I have enough materials to live today and I don't need too much anymore.
And I feel so much satisfaction today and I am very happy.
If you can feel happy in ordinal days every day, you are happy forever.
So I want to chrsih my normal life with lots of love & happiness with David.
To feel inside of peace in my mind makes my life happy every day.
Our each life is limited and it doesn't continue forever, so I want to enjoy at this present.
How is your life??
What is your priority in your life??
