30 day Studio Ghibli challenge:
↳ Day 27 → Character you identify with
Taeko from Only Yesterday. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I have looked back on my life and felt like crying for days simply because I missed those days. I have never followed through on anything I wanted to achieve or dreams I wanted to reach. Until a few months into this year I was just going along with life for the sake of it, doing what had to be done, much like Taeko. Things come along without warning and life just somehow… becomes reasonable again. Sometimes you really just have to do something for yourself - something your child self would be proud of. Growing up is hard and it really sucks, but we have to stay strong and power on.
