Vol.42 Inspiration
Feb 01,2017
  My favorite song is "Inspiration" (performed by French guitarist Gipsy Kings), which is used for the ending theme of TV drama "Onihei Hankacho," and I am using it for my cellphone melody.

 The definition of inspiration includes "inhalation," "suggesting opinions," "new idea" and "sacred revelation." In this column, I would like to talk about inspiration referring to the latter two.
 Life always involves worries and confusion. In this age, particularly, people face many difficult problems they cannot talk with others in turning points in life, daily work, and home life.
 On such an occasion, many become obsessed with what they should do and drive themselves into a corner, ending up having a nervous breakdown or giving in to despair.
 However, if you cannot find any solution after seeking for a certain period of time, you should stop, clear your head, and try again later.

 In my case, I tried it again when seeing the outside scenery while hanging on to a strap in a train or taking a bath. That gave me inspiration many times, allowing me to overcome difficulties.

 Therefore, when you cannot come up with any solution, I recommend you to have a defiant attitude although it may not work for everyone because each has a different character and mind.
 A defiant attitude does not have to be the same for all the people.
 Some may throw a dice to make a decision, and some may kick off others (of course, metaphorically) and start a new life. It is at least much better than having a nervous breakdown or giving in to despair.
End.
