“…so many years wasted believing
it wasn’t good enough,
a barrier to being cherished.”
From 'Generations of Women' in The End of the Beginning.
I was driving home at night with the beautiful Beaver Moon shining and it occurred to me, “I’m not afraid to have my heart broken.” I supposed this might invite the universe to break my heart even more, but the way I look at it, I am stronger than I’ve ever been. I love myself and I’m not afraid to give love to others. I’m getting smarter about who I give love to, but I can survive disappointment and heartbreak.
There is a Japanese term: Kintsugi. It is the art of repairing broken pottery with gold and lacquer. The thought is that something broken can be repaired and this history makes the piece more beautiful.
In our world today, so much has been done to cover our flaws and minimize our heartbreak. I know one thing – I’m a Kintsugi masterpiece!
Let’s talk soon.
