Most of the time I feel like a piece of pottery repaired with gold;
breakage and repair as part of my history, not something to disguise.
Beautiful possibility written in the cracks.
Yet still on occasion those days come
when my cracks just feel like cracks.
I doubt my potential to support people in seeing the possibility of beauty
in their broken places.
I recently bought myself this necklace from Etsy as a reminder of the cracks, the beauty and the fragility. All of these things are true about me, all of these things are OK.
The name of the necklace – senbonzakura – means “A thousand cherry trees”
I really like the image of a cherry tree, fragrant blossoms drifting in the wind.
