Kintsugi, it literally means “to join with gold”. It is a Japanese art dated back to Muromachi period wherein the broken crockery is not thrown away rather each crack is filled with golden sand. This makes them charming!
In this era, where we tend to put on brave faces hiding our imperfection and flaws, we must learn that each of our crack is beautiful. We are constantly striving for perfection, we forget to notice how imperfectly perfect we are.
The world breaks everyone and afterwards many are stronger at broken places
-Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms
Each break transforms us, makes us better human beings. Every experience in our life is either a memory or a lesson. Through each break, we learn,so, lets be grateful for each break which made us learn and imperfection which makes us unique in our own ways.
Though centuries old, you still help us understand one of the most important lesson.
Thank you for reminding us there’s beauty in our imperfections. Thank you for giving us hope when we’re broken.
