Tanmay Vora created the sketch I share today. Since starting Blooms to Blossoms in 2019 I have been following Tanmay. His ability to bring a narrative to life through a sketch is intriguing and stimulated my idea for Visual Blossoms.
“Sketching ideas in a meaning and impactful way.”
He posted a book review earlier this year titled, “Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life.” Ikigai (ih-kee-guy) is your reason for being guided your values and beliefs. “Iki” means “life” and “kai” means “realizing your hopes and dreams.” Not only did I like his sketch, but I became interested in how I could apply the principles of Ikigai to the purpose of Blooms to Blossoms when I read his summary statement.
“Finding your Ikigai is a lifelong journey of understanding yourself better,
doing things that you love,
putting your gifts to significant use and
learning along the way.”
Passion, vocation, profession, and mission are the four primary elements to discover your Ikigai. My blog Monday will explore how these elements along with the 10 Rules of Ikigai connect to the integration of wellness, lifelong learning, and personal development.
