“Show me the most damaged part of your soul, and I will show you how it shines like Gold.” ~Nikita Gill
Even the places we feel most broken shine like gold with the tenderness exposed underneath. The gold of healing adds to that even more.
Your soul is more beautiful than you can ever imagine.
“Some people see scars, and it is wounding they remember. To me they are proof of the fact that there is healing.” ~Linda Hogan
What do you see when you look at your own scars?
“Contrary to what we may have been taught to think, unnecessary and unchosen suffering wounds us, but need not scar us for life. It does mark us. What we allow the mark of our suffering to become is in our own hands.” ~bell hooks
This really gets to the essence of kintsugi living, doesn’t it? We always have the choice of “what we allow the mark of our suffering to become.” We can choose to find (and become) the gold of healing.
“May the flowers remind us why the rain was so necessary.” ~Xan Oku
It’s easy to get so caught up in the challenges of life’s rain storms that we miss the flowers that result. Kintsugi living is all about learning to seek out and appreciate the flowers in our lives.

“There is the mud, and there is the lotus that grows out of the mud. We need the mud in order to make the lotus.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
