Does it have to be fixed?

If you break your arm, it needs to be fixed. If it is not fixed, it will heal, but it may not heal properly. There may be complications.

If you break the screen on your cellphone, it may have to be fixed. If the crack is inconspicuous, you may choose to continue to use the phone.

If you break an egg, you can make breakfast.

Some breaks open up new possibilities. They don't need to be fixed. They need to be used.

When people come to one of my courses, they often assume that if something has broken, it will need to be fixed. It will need to be made whole and functional again.

But sometimes, they have cracked an egg. They need to stop trying to fix it and learn how to cook.
