Within every language there are words / mini phrases with such significant meanings & feelings that they're often skewed in interpretation. I love how 'Wabi-Sabi' translates.
A way of living that focuses on finding beauty withing the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay.
I chanced on this a while ago and I keep going back to it, because, it allows for me to have an conscience in what I do and how I live. In a big way, if I can, but, definitely in smaller doses on a daily basis. It's essential to find the beauty in the imperfections of life, otherwise happiness and peace will always remain an illusion.
To allow oneself to grow, mature & evolve. to create room for what is new and allow for it to unfold while minimising your surroundings.
Wabi-sabi to me means a LOT more than how it's been defined. It means that you're allowing for space within your life and your lifestyle. Acknowledging that the new will replace the old, but, we should do this in a manner that allows for the old to phase out organically. In business is re-iterates the need for ethical manufacturing and sustainability and allowing yourself to live with a clearer happier conscience.
Do you Wabi-Sabi ?
