What you find

What you find

“Never be so focused on what you’re looking for that you overlook the thing you actually find.” ~Ann Patchett

The broken places in our lives are often times when we have lost (or never found) what we were looking for. Kintsugi living is about looking beyond the pain of that loss to see the gifts that we’ve actually found in places we didn’t expect.

“How many times have you noticed that it’s the little quiet moments in the midst of life that seem to give the rest extra-special meaning?” ~Fred Rogers

When we learn to treasure those quiet little moments for the gems that they are and be fully present to them, all of life takes on a greater richness.

Return to yourself

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.” ~Masaru Emoto

A good reminder that we can always come back to the present moment here and now to find our way back to our strength when we’ve gotten lost.

Have you lost sight of how beautiful you are? Come back to yourself and re-discover it!
