Welcome to my solo podcast ‘Jing Lens’ -- my lifestyle diary . Here I share daily hustle and grind, small joys from my travel and hobbies, exercise routine, self-care practice, and reflection on my personal growth, etc., I consider Jing Lens as my dynamic diary to document and capture evolving and ( hopefully elevating) journey of my lifestyle.
Lifestyle is a bit overkill buzzword today but I have always been drawn to this word, spending years and years searching and building my lifestyle. I guess I finally reach this self-validation point to feel may be able to to share some mindset and practice from an ordinary person’s life to provide one possible form of wholesome and joyful living.
life requires us to do all grounding work that holds us accountable, and style allows us to curate a sense of aesthetic and belonging above it. Both life and style tie the façade and underneath into a concrete living reality, which helps us achieve a better state of mind in this physical world. This is my interpretation of lifestyle.
To wrap it up, key fragments compose my lifestyle are my day job, side passion projects, learning new course, upskilling, exercise, and travel .. do I feel overwhelmed or stressed from time to time, of course, but slowly and surely I know I am getting closer to an ideal living. Mr. Sakamoto said, you just have to be on stage and play your part, that is life.
It takes deep and heavy work to reach this point of claiming what lifestyle we are pursuing with unwavering faith. It all starts with figuring out who we are and what we want. Once we unravel that, we just need to work towards that reality, feeling authentically and unapologetically. I hope my share will bring a bit of joy and hope to whoever listens to it. I consider my sharing may be helpful for some people because it’s coming from a person who, after reaching radical acceptance of the complexity of humanity and the world, still truly feels grateful and thanksful for living in this world and enjoying its beauty. In the end, I want to say to those with given talents: 才能のある人々が、自分の才能を無駄にしない、今まで一生懸命に努力してきたことに本当にありがとうございました ! あなたたち はこの世界に 貴重な遺産を築いてきました. 自分の心に従い続けて, これからも お願いします ! For people like me, I believe with absolute conviction that we can design a lifestyle that fills us with joy and meaning. We are all on the journey toward that unique answer made for each of us. Together we are not alone, but we just have to stay true to ourselves to live this life, as Mr. Sakamoto said.
In my next episode, I will share how I spent almost three years time turning exercise into one of my built-in habits that plays an essential part in sustaining my lifestyle.
I am also running another podcast ' LifeDesigner with Jingyu Chen' where I interview amazing talents coming from all around the world across all different industries. They are artists, creatives, professionals, entrepreneurs, slash everything, and they are all on their journey to pursue their mission with a passion. It's their story-telling about how they become their own life designers!
