  • I got downsized today, so I biked here, 平城宮跡(Heijyo Guseki).

    To be precise, I was told that I was transferred. It's not getting downsized, But it means I am not important for our company now. I was too shocked. Certainly, I didn't acheive my target this 1st half. But I couldn't accept it. Although transferring is an everyday occurrenc in your country, I love the place I live and the house I live, In short, I don't wanna move from here.

    I didn't acheive my target of this 1st half, but I had enough prospects for the 2nd half. By my transferring, I must part with those prospects to someone else. I'm very mortified. This cycle - After I build some prospects, I must part with those next half - repeat this 3 years. Of course I couldn't get much payment by results. I understand it's this conpany's rule, nevertheless I couldn't accept it just this time.

    I think I'm well paid, so it's truth I couldn't decide to take the other way. But, it may be too late, I quite realized that I should do what I really wanna do regardless of amount of payment and if I don't know what I really wanna do I should look for it even if it takes very long time.

    平城宮跡(Heijyo Guseki) is the remains of the most ancient capital of Japan. It has 1,300 years' history. Whenever I come here, I think of things that are far away. Is my agony tiny as compared with 1,300 years' history? No, When I think so, I can take a forward-looking again.
