Yesterday lil monkey left me a comment that I really had to share with you all because it had such a positive impact on me.
"Have you heard the term "Kintsukuroi"? Your comment about gathering all
your broken pieces up made me think of this. I imagine you will become
more beautiful for having been broken. That's my wish for you. Google
the word for images. :) "
I had heard about Kintsukuroi but couldn't for the life of me remember what it meant. So I did just what she suggested - I googled the images and immediately went "ah HA! I DO remember that" (in fact I do believe I blogged about it - once upon a time)
I have been feeling "broken" and undesirable because of the brokenness. But after seeing the images - reading the explanation/definition of Kintsukuroi - my heart lifted.
Thank you lil monkey for the comment!!! It has given me hope and a stronger desire to mend myself .............
And for those of you who are scratching your heads - and don't have time or inclination to google Kintsukuroi - here you go...............
NOTE to lil monkey - I have lost the access to your blog :( could you email me (see the link on the left) with permission - again ???
