Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Happy Life - The Wabi Sabi Shop

Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Happy Life

Ready for a little inspiration? Today, we’re unveiling a Japanese idea that can help us infuse our life with joy and purpose – Ikigai 生き甲斐 (ee-key-guy).

Ikigai is all about discovering where your passions, talents, values, and the world’s needs intersect.

To find your Ikigai, you can ask yourself these four questions:

  • What do I love doing?
  • What am I good at?
  • What does the world need from me?
  • What can I be paid for?

    At the core, where all four circles come together, lies your Ikigai.

    For me, starting The Wabi Sabi Shop has been a significant step in my own journey towards Ikigai. Sharing Japan-made, high-quality, and sustainably produced household items with people around the world is a dream come true. I'm thrilled to have you as part of this adventure and hope our products bring a touch of Ikigai into your life. 

    I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I believe exploring Ikigai may lead to a more vibrant, purposeful life. I invite you to join me on this journey and share your thoughts along the way.

    We’d love to hear your insights, so don't hesitate to share them with us!

    Wishing you a day brimming with Ikigai goodness!
