Mijika ni aru mono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou

Anata ga saikin taiken shita
Shiawase wa ittai nan desuka
Megumare sugiteite
Omoidasenai kamo

Ima koko ni iru koto
Iki wo shiteiru koto
Tade sore dake no koto ga
Kiseki da to kizuku

Mijika ni aru mono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou

You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And I'll never take it for granted
Lets go!

Hitodasuke wo gizen to
Yobu yatsura mo iru kedo
Shinjiru no mo utagau no mo
Hito sorezore dakara
Tatoe kari ni sore ga
Gizen de atta toshite mo
Dareka wo sukueta nara
Soryamushiro nani yori mo zutto
Oitsuzuketekita yume
Akiramezuni susume yo nante
Kirei koto wo ieru hodo
Nanimo dekichainai kedo
Hitonigiri no yuuki wo mune ni
Ashita wo ikinuku tame ni
And I'll never take it for granted
Lets go!

Mijika ni arumono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou
You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And I'll never take it for granted
Oitsuzuketekita yume
Akiramezuni susume you nante
Kirei koto wo ieru hodo
Nanimo dekichainai kedo
Hitonigiri no yuuki wo mune ni
Ashita wo ikinuku tame ni
And I'll never take it for granted
Lets go!

    I think both the Japanese and the English Version of song has a motivational meaning to it - particularly the English version. Basically, the only place where you can find true happiness isn't anywhere else but within yourself. YOU are in charge of your own life, and YOU'RE the one who is responsible for making the most of it, hence "life is an opportunity." The moments you have in your life are numbered and precious, if you keep dwelling on the bad things you already did before, and/or waiting for the next thing to happen by itself - you are wasting time, because you have to do it yourself... and one day, it will all disappear (i.e. you will eventually die), and you don't want to live your last moments thinking that you wasted your years and achieved nothing, regretting all that you could have done simply because you wanted to avoid failing. It's not easy to get over failure, but the difficulty and struggling is worth it if you want to survive longer - that is, if you believe you can stand up for yourself in achieving the best you can do.

    Amazing words! I've always thought that when you search something you will always find it, the only question is what are you searching. If you're searching a reason to be upset â€" you will find it. If you're searching a reason to be happy - you will find it.
    Sounding like a nice attitude, ain't that?
    But there's a problem - when something gone wrong in my life and a disappointment came to me, by trying to recall a nice memories from the past I improved my mood temporarily, but some why there was a worries in my heart, I felt like I'm doing something wrong, I didn't remembered specific events from my childhood very well and when I tried to recall them more and more they clarified but at some point those memories didn't felt positive like they did before, and thеn I realized that I didn't brought the positive from the past I brought a negative from the present to there, in other words those events I clarified are not my real past, they're just memories of the past with the attendance of the current me. "what did you forget there?"-a Russian well-known expression. Leave your past in the past, whenever someone comes to you with a question like "What happened that you are so happy?", with smile on your face you can answer "hmm.. well i dont know, maybe i'm too blessed to remember".
