Kintsukuroi — The Beauty of Being Broken
Sometimes life flows seamlessly from one perfect moment to the next, but often times we face struggles, insecurities, and set-backs that leave us broken.
And we wonder what will become of the pieces.
When I discovered the Japanese art of kintsukuroi, “to repair with gold,” I immediately fell in love with the beauty of being broken. This type of art work is a wonderful metaphor for life.
Additionally, the book entitled, Broken Open: How Difficult Times Help Us Grow, by Elizabeth Lesser, is a good read in line with the concept of Japanese art of kintsukuroi.
This was a wonderful surprise in my inbox today 🙂 Synchronicity at its best. Thanks for sharing. Japanese culture always has some new and unexpected twist. It never ceases to amaze me!
