“Oubaitori” is a Japanese principle that brings happiness and ease of life
Most people on the planet in recent months have been thinking and discussing current topics – improvement or worsening of the situation, pandemic, vaccination, sunny and warmer days. Most topics and outcomes are uncertain, so motivation is also uncertain and constantly declining. It is important for all people to have some goal that helps them feel better. The Japanese principle of “oubaitori” can help a lot in that.
“Oubaitori” is actually an idiom created from the signs for four types of trees that bloom during spring – cherry, plum, apricot and peach. “Each flower / plant blooms in its own time. It is a reminder that each individual has their own journey through life. ”In short, this should mean that each person should live their life according to their own rules and without comparison with other people. Every person should respect all their strengths and achievements, which is especially important at this time.
