Even broken things have value

“Kintsugi (金継ぎ, “golden joinery”), also known as Kintsukuroi (金繕い, “golden repair”) is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.”

I like this idea very much. We always think failure is a lack in ourselves but, really it is an opportunity. We learned we lacked something as a result of a failure. It taught us where our cracks are, thus, they can now be repaired.

Don’t be regretful for loss, be grateful for the growth that came and made us more than we use to be.

Some things aren’t meant to last forever, they are meant to lead us to the path toward our forever.

If you keep going, what you think of as failure, becomes experience.

Sometimes the future is waiting for you to finish growing so you can bloom.
