The subtle art of being vulnerable

Kitsugi is the Japanese art of repairing ceramic with resin and powdered gold. Instead of covering up the imperfections of the item, the kintsugi masters make them an asset. The “wounds” stained with the gold make the damaged object even more beautiful. The ‘golden scars’ makes it unique and special. Behind this lies the philosophical concept that teaches us that beauty lies in imperfection, in what is fragile and ephemeral.

Screw destiny. Bend fate in your favour

We all participate in the relay race. We run, move forward. We collect and hand over the baton. A baton of origin, race, social class, cultural conditions, education, attitude to life. We are conditioned by what our older generations pass on to us. Unfortunately, these aren’t always great things.

Power of small changes

Whenever it comes to life transformations people prefer big changes. They like to see big shifts fast and when they don’t see it they feel like they have failed. This applies to every type of goal we set, from tiny to this really big ones; losing weight, getting fit, getting rich or changing career patch – we want it all and we want it now. If we do not see a significant change now, it is more likely that we will quit.
