Honoring The Journey: A Writing Prompt + Meditation

Notes on 2020 and 2021

The ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi is about highlighting the beauty of broken things. When a favorite ceramic plate breaks into pieces, a restorer binds it together with gold and adhesive to highlight its journey.

For me, 2020 was about broken things. It was about the loss of routines and predictability. It was messy and full of sharp edges and unpredictable emotions.

2021 will be about the dedication and the meticulous nature of slowly restoring what was broken, building it back up to be stronger and beautiful in all new ways, and inventing a new and better way as we move forward. I wanted to offer a brief writing prompt and meditation in the new year. I hope you enjoy them.

Writing prompt

There is a concept that I like to visit in my workshops and yoga classes. It’s all about cultivating the opposite perspective, leveraging a feeling and tapping the polarity. So if you are enraged, explore compassion. If you are feeling drained, focus on abundant energy.

With this practice in mind, write a letter to 2020, and instead of allowing anger, frustration or fear to dictate the tone, explore the year from a place of gratitude and compassion. Totally embrace it. Try to write for a minimum of 1,000 words.


Ready for Transformation Meditation

Wishing you all good things in the New Year. 2021 is not about changing the past but honoring the journey.
