Understanding what really matters.

Hina has been easy-going in a different environment. Sometimes the hotel room doesn’t function as it should do, but Hina thinks it’s not a big deal as long as we have a good place to sleep. Sleeping is important especially while traveling.

What is interesting is that she is aware of value of money. She compares things with others and finds a better one for that value.

It doesn’t mean that she is cheap but that she would like to spend wisely.

Here is another experience regarding value of money. Once she visited a gem mining place in a mountain. There were people selling gems found in the place. Hina thought that it must be too expensive but I suggested that she should ask the price if she really wants it.

Of course the fair and reasonable price is important. But what matters more is whether we really want it or not. If we buy just because it’s cheap or cheaper than other places, we just care about money not the true value of the things we are going to buy.

Hina fell in love with one crystal. She really loved the shape although the stone is a small piece. She became happy and excited about how she would decorate it.

In a modern society, we might be in a trap of “not having enough money” although our economy is usually better than the past.

Hina knows what she loves and what her soul tells her to do. With that sense, she has started to build a happy life.
