When I interviewed my sister about her Ikigai, she answered quickly that her purpose, or reason for getting up in the morning, is the arts/sports. She is an avid dancer, painter, and athlete, and she has found her passion through these activities. My Ikigai, however, differs slightly from hers. My reason for getting up is really my family and friends. The dedication that my sister gives to her dancing and sports inspires me to do things that I love, and my friends are extremely supportive and optimistic. I think that this is a really interesting philosophy to adopt, and it changes your perspective on life.
