Todays theme: Wanderlust

Busy day in the office today: sunday story editing, email checking, blog posting, dog sleeping and coffee drinking.


Going through old photos today and found this one – taken in Dublin and I realised I want to travel more. See the world and explore every corner. Sometimes it’s easy for us to get bogged down with work, drama and small things. And being there all the time, well it makes it hard to see the forest through the trees. When you travel, you gain a new perspective because you don’t think about the small things back home, the not importants and the not urgents. You see what matters, the little things that bring you joy and the world that is happening outside of your existence. The world meant for exploring, capturing and remembering. Without travelling, you cannot truly know that in 20 years, you will not remember the arguments you had or the work that was too much at the time. Instead you will remember the adventures you partook on. So travel, smile and take photos – for those are the return tickets to moments otherwise lost. 

Happy Friday all.

This is my story of finding my ikigai. Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ee-ki-ɡU]) is a Japanese concept meaning "a reason for being". According to the Japanese, everyone has a hidden ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is regarded as very important, since it is believed that discovery of one’s ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.

  1. Each one of us wants to travel and explore this beautiful world.
    It’s just that escaping out of this monotonous life where you leave all things behind, clearing your mind – I think that’s the real challenge.
    The people who get stuck in their work regret that at the end when they get to know that there was so much to do, so much to see.
    After reading this, I bet many will take that step to get out of that zone, and embrace on a journey to the mother earth.
    Keep coming up with inspiring writing like this.

    P.S. – That picture itself says a lot. Black and white in the background can be taken as our normal busy schedule and the colorful cloth, shining bright, is what we can see as the lovely experience that we will get while exploring the nature.
