Daijoubu is my favourite Japanese word. It means, "Are you okay", or, "Is it okay", or simply, "Okay", depending on the intonation. I like the sounds of it, and I like that it can mean a lot of things. I find it useful to ask my kids in class, "Daijoubu?" if they seem upset or hurt themselves. I also use it as a statement to confirm or answer a question.
As for myself, I think I'll be daijoubu.
Exactly a year ago, I made the decision to move to Japan. I was looking for an adventure, and wanted to do something that would make me truly happy. I guess I did not have specific goals in mind, mostly just wanting to pursue my love story with Japan, a country I fell in love with a long time ago.
Sure, things don't always work so smoothly in any kind of relationship, but it's all part of the adventure, right?
Japan, I do love you.
