Many people focus on being unbreakable but the reality is that nobody is unbreakable. The nature of life is that it will break each of us somewhere somehow. You may lose a job, clients, a loved one, your life savings, go through a divorce, something somewhere along your journey will break you.

Kintsugi

In Japan instead of throwing broken vessels away many practice Kintsugi in which the broken areas are repaired with a type of cement and dusted with gold. Kintsugi highlights the broken areas, makes them stronger and more beautiful.  Once repaired the vessel is usable again.

You don’t need be unbreakable, you need Kintsugi.
