A Kickass Kintsugi Life

“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.”

-Ernest Hemingway

Seeing 2020
Entering 2020, we are all at the crossroads of some kind of major transition… the kind of transition that can foment beyond your imagination experiences and outcomes that you can now set into motion. This is why I am so excited to introduce the idea of Seeing 2020! This year we are going to gain clarity about our visions as well as see the year through together. Seeing 2020 is about learning more about where you are and where you want to go.

Every transition is like breaking a vase and putting it back together. It takes a new shape that would not have existed if you had not had the courage to break it. It becomes something that was not there before. 

It is creative chaos!

It is not about control. The break comes first…the new form comes after. 

We can break the mundane, a habit, or a stale point of view.

We can break out of our shell, break with tradition, or break a rule.

Kintsugi (金継ぎ, “golden joinery”) is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. It considers the damage and repair as part of the story and personality of an object, rather than something to hide. Every break is unique and instead of disguising breakage, the Kintsugi technique actually highlights the “flaws” as a part of the design. Like Kintsugi, when we embrace our “scars,” we can create an even stronger, more beautiful life.  

Sometimes it takes a break to create something more unique, beautiful and resilient. These golden breaks allow you to see the progress you have made and that you have learned. 

The transitions you thought might break you–the fears, wounds, challenges–are actually what makes up some of the most admirable parts of you. 

We are all going to hit these transitions and risk and damage are part of the deal. Live intensely. Don’t bubble wrap yourself in an attempt to stay in one piece. 

Let’s start right here and choose what we want to break…where we want some creative chaos right now as we step into 2020. I’m choosing to break up my fears of looking really foolish if I “fail” and how I downplay my superpowers by resisting who I am as a woman who inspires and moves people. 

What do you want to break into pieces so you can put something new in its place?
