What is kintsugi?
Wikipedia gave me some more details:
“Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum.
As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
It can be seen to have similarities to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect. Japanese aesthetics values marks of wear by the use of an object.
Kintsugi can relate to the Japanese philosophy of “no mind”, which encompasses the concepts of non-attachment, acceptance of change and fate as aspects of human life.”
Accepting our mended bodies and souls.
Inspiring thoughts to Cancer fighters.
Many would aspire to resume life as it was before being diagnosed but the truth is that we won’t ever be the same. Cancer was in our path and we learnt from it, grew up, elevated our souls. Life will never be the same. Nothing wrong with it. In fact, the next step is to accept we changed physically sometimes, emotionally always.
There is nothing passive or easy in that acceptance. Embracing change, welcoming the transition, can be overwhelming and certainly requires courage and time.
So, let’s celebrate our gold flaws, and be proud of the journey.
