THE ART OF RECOGNIZING BEAUTY IN WHAT SEEMS BROKEN

YOUR STRONGEST AT THE PLACE WHERE YOU ARE BROKEN

 Kintsugi ( "golden joinery")
also known as Kintsukuroi ( "golden repair"),
 is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

 Most people throw away anything they break ,because it looses its value or, no longer serves the intended purpose.Some  would like the damages to their broken items to be concealed  and hidden by repair making the object look like new. (As if it never happened.)

 But the Japanese art of Kintsugi follows a different philosophy. Rather than disguising the breakage, kintsugi restores the broken item incorporating the damage into the aesthetic of the restored item, making it part of the object’s history.

This fascinated me because i saw the error in the way i have lived.Simplicity would be to live your life healing the scars you have received on life's path by acknowledging the pain that it caused you. Being aware that you are a different person as a result or what has occurred to you and see the beauty that has risen from the ashes.The person that is ''You Now"Wiser and Stronger because you where broken but you  wore your scars as a badge of honor..

Not forgetting nor escaping.
Not ignoring nor pretending.
Not allowing yourself to be consumed by it.
But by simply accepting that you are broken and that it is apart of your history . Without letting it rob you of your future.

You are who you are because of the choices you have made as a result of what you have been through.
Change your narrative. Change the parts of you that resist your growth and embrace all that you are  (see my post dont-disregard-me-embrace-me.. also embrace-glorious-mess-that-you-are.
