Lately, I've been studying the principles of ikigai. In case you have never heard this word before, ikigai is a Japanese term for "a reason for being" or "the purpose of life". Ikigai, according to the Japanese culture, is what forms the source of value in one's life or the things that make one's life worthwhile.
Purpose empowers us to realize the two most important outcomes in life; fulfillment and meaning.
So, here's to not only discovering but also realizing your most fulfilling and meaningful life's work – that work that you're most passionate about and that you excel at doing. And even if no one is watching, like the gagaku musicians, keep working it– write your story, paint your image, dance your dance, sing your song, and play your music.
