Resilient Optimism

Resilient Optimism

Kintsugi is a Japanese art form, tradition, and philosophy which finds repaired objects more beautiful than the original. Kintsugi happens to be a beautiful description of what it means to be human. We are broken vessels in need of repair.

Philosophy

Resilient optimism is relentless optimism.

It is this hope in the face of utterly exhausting and depressing news of war and famine and global warming, a pandemic. Optimism is not blind. It doesn't just happen. You're not born with it. Optimism is a habit that you have to cultivate; that **we** have to cultivate.

It's a choice.

It's choosing between the reality that is right now and the reality that could be. Because we live in this in-between state, this already-but-not-yet state.
