In Japan, there’s one word
that sums up the reason for being.
And that word is “Ikigai“.
“Ikigai” is the reason
you get up in the morning,
to live and enjoy your life
with passion and purpose.
“It’s time to awaken the giant within
and live a life of greatness”
“The light at the end of the tunnel is your life; it’s the tunnel that’s temporary.”
— Michael Josephson
“If we tend to the things that are important in life, if we are right with those we love, and behave in line with our faith, our lives will not be cursed with the aching throb of unfulfilled business. Our words will always be sincere, our embraces will be tight. We will never wallow in the agony of ‘I could have, I should have’. We can sleep in a storm. And when it’s time, our goodbyes will be complete.”
― Mitch Albom
“Tell the truth. Sing with passion. Work with laughter. Love with heart. ‘Cause that’s all that matters in the end.”
– Kris Kristofferson
