thinking out loud, writing from the heart, eating for the soul

i made a list of the things that i want in life while i was on the train the other day. i want:

to be told that i’m loved

a career

to learn something new everyday

to eat lots of raw fish

to learn web design

to be like ellen degeneres

to live in the moment

i’ve been thinking a lot about the people who are in my life, and how i affect theirs in return. i’ve always believed in true friendships instead of shallow ones. if i can’t bear my soul to the person and have that from them in return, then it’s too shallow of a friendship. those are the people who keep you going in life. they’re the ones who hold you up when you can’t stand, who you want to call first when something great happens, who are there for you no matter what.

i promise you this: you can always trust that i will say what what i’m thinking or feeling needs to be said. i don’t believe in lies. i don’t believe in deception. i certainly don’t believe in avoiding anything just because it’s uncomfortable.

be true to your heart and say what you feel, because otherwise, you risk the chance of losing someone you care about without having them know how much you care.

to all of my friends and family who have been there for me – thank you for the support throughout my life as well as with this move to japan. the transition hasn’t been easy, but i trust that this is where i’m supposed to be at the moment. i love you guys.

About leemodesigns

I have been folding Origami for over 20 years - being raised in both Japan and Hawai'i has shaped and formed who I am today. Origami has been a kind of relaxation for me my entire life, and only recently did I discover that I enjoyed wearing my work rather than simply displaying it! Although folding paper is how I originally started LeeMo, my personal exploration of digital fabrication has expanded the way that I approach modular origami. Folding will always be a passion for me, but I never want to forget how it all started: a little girl and a package of paper.
