What is the reason you get up each morning? What brings value to your life?
Within Japanese philosophy, the answer to those questions is called your ikigai. Ikigai directly translates to reason to live–"iki" translating to live and "gai" translating to reason. It is also often translated to "reason to get up each morning." For some people, their own children are their ikigai, but it doesn't necessarily have to be something of that magnitude. For me, good food and good friends are my ikigai. The philosophy is simply that through small things everyday, your life can have greater value.
