Well, it’s Friday! And that means : FEEL GOOD FRIDAYS! Today’s quote is by Connecticut author, Amy Bloom:
“You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.”
The tea bowl in the image above was once broken, and repaired with a method called Kintsugi. “Kintsugi is a Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer resin dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy it speaks to breakage and repair becoming part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.” (Source: www.wikipedia.com)
Just because our bodies may be flawed, and our insides may be incomplete and broken, doesn’t mean that we are broken as a whole. Our Endo, and the suffering and pain it causes us, is part of our personal history (and our present).
Allow it to be a part of who we are : We are still beautiful.
