I used to think that caring about another person meant that I had to care about what they thought of me, but I’ve learned over time that I can actually care about another person better when I am not caught up in trying to edit who I am to manipulate their opinion of me. Setting them free to think whatever they think sets me free to be true to who I actually am.

Yesterday's election got me thinking about how I respond to failure to meet my goals and helped me realize that my standard story about what failure means isn't helping me.
Here's how I'm shifting my story. What story do you tell yourself about failure?

At Halloween/Samhain/Allhallowtide, we observe a time of the thinning of the veils between our everyday reality and the spirit realms. Similarly, our wounds can function as thin places in the veils both on the "trick" side and on the "treat" side. How might seeing your wounds as thin places change the way you respond to them?

We so often underestimate the depths and the wisdom contained in our own hearts. We go looking outside ourselves for what can only be found in the depths of our own hearts. Dive deep and you may be surprised at what riches you find.

Most wisdom and encouragement, including the powerful image of kintsugi, needs to fit the context. Sometimes the opposite is also true and knowing when to apply which "truth" is vital to offering true encouragement.

We fear the dark places in life for their danger and uncertainty and pain, but there is treasure to be found in those dark places if we are willing to go into the dark open to finding it there.

The darkness that comes with life's broken places can be a place of fear and anguish and despair. It can also be a sheltering womb preparing us for healing, growth, and resurrection. Which one do you see in the darkness?

Like an oak tree, we grow stronger by having faced life’s challenges. That’s one of the many forms that our kintsugi gold can take.

Having our stories of trauma and suffering dismissed, disbelieved, or attacked adds a secondary layer of trauma like throwing dirt in an open wound. Here's how we can begin dealing with this cultural tendency toward dirt throwing in our own circles of influence.
