Read on how to enrich your life by purpose, i.e. to find depth and, a reason to get out of bed each morning, your own Ikigai.
Sometimes, most of us feel trapped – in our surroundings or in ourselves. We have things we want to say, do and know but we stop ourselves for a million reasons, sometimes known or unknown. But maybe, it’s time we stop limiting ourselves and step out of the boundaries we are stuck in.
Don’t bound my freedom
Don’t define my boundary
Let me fly high in the limitless sky
The body feels so light floating in the air
Let me dive deep in the vast blue sea
The corals at the bottom are so enchanting
Let me climb to the highest peak of the mountain
The view from the top is breath-taking
Let me venture out in the wild
There is a freshness in its vicinity
Let me sing as if no one is listening
The lyrics of the song adds peace to my soul
Let me dance to my favourite music
The beats empower my inner core
Let me laugh like a child
The roar of laughter keeps the child in me alive
Let me cry my heart out
The tears relieve me from the grief and pain
Let me spend a day in solitude
The quietude calms my mind
Let me shout at the top of my voice
The lungs open up to breathe easy
Let me explore the hidden beauty of the world
The treasure in its bosom is mesmerising
Let me live this life to the fullest
The journey is more beautiful than the destination
