When I was depressed, my friend told me "The past is no more, the future not yet". I felt that it's important for me to enjoy my life day by day and then one day, some outcome will come out....
When I stuck, I try to refresh with writing my favourite Japanese proverb. I have a couple of favourite proverbs.
初志貫徹（Shoshi kantetsu) ---carry out the original intention(purpose)
一期一会（Ichigo ichie) --- a once-in-a-lifetime chance(a special occasion).
I like the meaning of "Ichigo ichie". If I do everything as if it were a once-in-a-lifetime chance, I will be able to enjoy every moment and make effort without any pressure.
There are a couple of other proverbs as below.
森羅万象（Shinra Banshou) --- All things in the universe
花鳥風月(Kachou Fugetsu) --- the beauties of Nature
一視同仁(Ittshi Doujin) --- Universal brotherhood
気宇壮大(Kiu Soudai) --- A big hearted person
Calligraphy is pretty easy, just get a brush and black ink and write your favourite words. If you are interested in Kanji,please look at 50 popular Kanji, here.
