Some of my best life lessons came from Japanese manga and anime. During the worst of my back injury, I inhaled them. There’s not much to do when you can’t sit. Most avenues of time spending are cut off–no dining out, no going to the movies. So you learn to distract yourself with what remains.
For me, it was manga and anime. Some of the phrases forever imprinted on me. They became my rallying calls. Even now, I still invoke them.
“Live the life you want.”
“Hold on to your dreams, tomorrow knows where and when.”
“You are not alone.”
Powerful moments in beautiful stories that I treasured. Life lesson imparted not through personal experience, but by immersing myself in their story world.
Any great story quotes you absorbed into your life?
