I just had my birthday yesterday and birthdays always make me do a little soul searching. It seems this year’s theme is motivation: what motivates me.
Money? Friends? Family? All of the above? None of the above?
I just know it’s not money.
Money was a big motivator. I’ll admit to that. I left the comforts of living in my home country to work in Japan largely because of money. I left the warmth of the people of Kagoshima to work in cold Tokyo largely because of money.
Tokyo changed me though. Tokyo taught me you can have money and still be unhappy.
I need a big mac.
