Translated to “golden joinery,” Kintsugi (or Kintsukuroi, which means “golden repair”) is the centuries-old Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with a special lacquer dusted with powdered gold, silver, or platinum.
This repair method celebrates each artifact’s unique history by emphasizing its fractures and breaks instead of hiding or disguising them. Kintsugi often makes the repaired piece even more beautiful than the original, revitalizing it with new life.
Maybe your struggles are the same, and each break in your body represents something stronger and more beautiful. I know first hand it’s hard to love and accept your body when you’re bloated, aching and fatigued, but maybe it’s what makes #EndoBabes
