There are somedays that you have to pinch yourself a little, cause it just feels unreal. Today is one of those days.
I have been dreaming of living in New York City since I was a teenager. Since we started coming here almost once a year for mother/daughter weekends, since I fell in love with the hustle and bustle of this energetic city, since I find constant inspiration from the people and the projects here. I have put New York City on a pedestal and now I am going to have to see if it will live up to all the hype. I feel like this is a dream come true.
Ikigai is a reason for living. A sense of purpose.
Coming to New York City is a dream with a purpose.
The purpose of love, to be in an adventure, to fuel my curiosity, to find boundless energy and to leave with more ideas than I know what to do with.
How does Ikigai help me connect the dots? How does a sense of purpose become an everyday passion? Does Ikigai become a search for something more? Ikigai is all in your head and that is what makes it so darn powerful!
How might I have adventures? The kind that make you notice the small details. The ones that give you something to chew on. The ones that rattle around in your head way longer than when you experienced them.
Having awoken in this dream, I am excited for the possibilities!
