Thank you! This is incredibly reassuring to read as someone in western culture. As a person who has never had a "prestigious" career path I have had my own identity issues.

Deep down, I know that Ikagai is the true path to joy. Thank you for explaining its true meaning--I had not heard of the concept before.

My joy is in watching birds eat, plants grow, clouds roll through the sky. That is who I am and where I find my joy.
