Summary
When we lose a person we love, a job, or our health, it can feel like a precious piece of ourselves falling to the ground and shattering. In the Japanese art of kintsugi, that's where the creation of beauty begins: in the delicate re-joining and mending of shards with loving attention. Navarro encourages us to approach our lives in the same way: rather than conceal our repairs, embrace them and look to them as proof of our strength
