It is beautiful to think of this practice as a metaphor for our life, to see the broken, difficult, or painful parts of yourself as radiating light, gold, and beauty. Kintsugi can teach us that broken pieces can make us stronger and better than before. When we think we are broken, we can pick up the pieces, put them together, and learn to embrace the cracks. The practice of Kintsugi can help us to take a look back on our own experiences and all that we have healed and sealed from. So often we do not pay attention and we do not appreciate our work and progress.
