'A question I always ask myself before posting is, "Who am I posting this for?" The answer is, "Me and one other person." Me and that one other person who might find value. They may not comment or press "like," but I trust that they're here. Looking. Listening. Reading. Sharing themselves in whatever way feels comfortable.
I thank them too. They've given me a gift.'
- Wentworth Miller
Ikigai (生き甲斐) The reason for being; the thing that gets you up in the morning.
Meraki (μεράκι) To do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work.
Yūgen (幽玄) Relatively undefinable. Contextual. A profound, mysterious sense of the beauty of the universe. An awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and mysterious for words. Yūgen suggests that beyond what can be said but is not an allusion to another world. It is about this world, this experience.
Dedication. Discipline. Perseverance.
"There is no such thing as a neutral word... Either you are speaking life... Or you are speaking death..."
