Embracing imperfection

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art.

There are many days I see myself as a broken piece of pottery. Cracked dreams. Things are broken. It hurts. It should.

However, sometimes the broken things do come back stronger. The world was broken for a while. I think it might be coming back a little stronger and a little wiser. I don’t know. I hope so.

The broken things can be repaired. Perhaps, the world will find a better, more unshakable foundation.

Wouldn’t that be nice?
