Not tough at all to find joy here, especially when you get to play for a gachapon each time you stack up five plates. // But I can’t say it’s with the same ease that I’ve found my bigger ikigai. In all honesty, I feel like I’ve found 70%-80% of it, but am still searching for the rest. Constantly. // Perhaps it’s a neverending search? An ever evolving destination? // Perhaps it is not something we find but something we create? And as beings who change and evolve over time, perhaps our bigger ikigai changes and transforms with us, too? // Perhaps the uncertainty is the driving force that keeps our bigger ikigai vibrant and dynamic and alive.
