The concept of the Japanese art of Kintsugi had me hooked from the moment I first encountered it. Instead of discarding broken objects the cracks are filled with gold. Something that could have been deemed as trash becomes even more beautiful, and both the cracks AND the gold are part of the evolution of the object. What a beautiful representation of how we might live our lives and learn to be human.
Finding Kintsugi is all about embracing the broken and seeking ways we might grow and transform the broken into beautiful whether with ourselves, others, or the world at large. My hope is that this blog will inspire you, validate you, and perhaps give you some things to think about on your path to a more fulfilling and wholly accepting life!
