Light


"Waking up this morning, I smile, twenty four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion. "

-Thich Nhat Hanh

In Japanese culture, the word Ikigai translates to "the reason for which you wake up in the morning."

I appreciate this simple word; a reminder of something so big.

I believe that our days are meant to be filled with love, joy, discomfort, challenge, boldness. This type of life requires an investment: focus, energy, consistency, heart. With so much opportunity for distraction in our lives, a great driving purpose can help us navigate our days.

How do you figure it out? Slow down, look around and breathe. The answers are all around you & most importantly already within you. Seek to fill your day with what brings you the most happiness. Eliminate "should & have to" activities from your life. Surround yourself with people who believe in you and fill you. Finally, inspire others to find their reason by being a light in their lives.
