Hygge, Ikigai + Wabi Sabi
What is my purpose in life?
The fundamental truth of ikigai is that nothing exists in a vacuum—everything is connected—and having a strong sense of ikigai is living a perfectly balanced lifestyle.
Wabi-sabi is an ancient Japanese philosophy focused on accepting the imperfect and transient nature of life. It's rooted in Buddhism and arose from tea ceremonies in which prized utensils were handmade, irregular and imperfect. There is no direct western translation for wabi-sabi, but essentially it is the art of finding beauty in the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.
