Ikigai-yay: My gap year adventure

I quit my job to find my ikigai!

A couple of weeks ago, I finished up corporate work and started my ikigai-yay gap year (as I like to call it). For some, this seemed like an out of the blue decision but for me, it was something which had been building for a while. I knew I was extremely lucky in loving the company and the people I worked with, but over time I felt like something was missing. The complete freedom and opportunity to explore my creativity, something I don’t believe I have ever done in an intentional and personal way before. So, supported by my wonderful husband, I took the plunge and decided to have a gap year to find my Ikigai.
