Tuesday Morning Musings…A Zero Waste Life…#Kintsugi…

Sometimes while reading or watching something speaks to my soul…touches my inner core… gives me hope…gives me a glimpse of a world I want to inhabit…

I believe in inclusion… this beautiful film although about something totally different made my thoughts turn to inclusion and to human imperfections …it made me think and hope that I could live in a world where human imperfections differences are seen for what they are …that we embrace that and look at not what a person cannot do but embrace and celebrate what they can do…

How we can help troubled, lonely, isolated souls find their peace, their inner self and become whole again…

Step by step we need to find that as the world FEELS in many ways that it is spinning out of control …the time has come for all of us to take stock to really look inside ourselves …to really see how we can live a “Zero Waste Life

    A lovely story Carol. We have a pile of plates and cups that are repaired and no longer fit for their original purpose but find a new use.. often under pot plants or to hold paper clips.. it doesn’t matter as long as they still give pleasure.. the same as us. We often heal the cracks in our lives and still go on to find another path or love. ♥♥

    My wife just bought some leggings from a company that sends all of their packages in biodegradable composting bags! You just take it outside and bury it in your garden!

    Thank you for sharing this, Carol. So beautiful. And since I first learned of it, I’ve love the whole philosophy of Kintsugi. It shaped much of my approach to counseling as a career and to life in general. (I liked it so much, I used it in one of my books.) 🙂

        I shared it with students this morning, and most of them had the same reaction, which prompted a whole discussion about students with special needs. Thank you again, darling!

    Carol, this is a lovely story to share, with so many layers of wisdom held within. Thank you. My nephew’s birthday is coming up and at 11 and he doesn’t want anything in particular. So I have offered to knit him a pair of socks. I hunted for yarn in colours he would love and couldn’t find any that ‘spoke’ to me, so I looked in my basket. There are leftover balls in there from other pairs I have made and I can ‘see’ a patchwork pair and I feel he’ll love them. There is such a feeling from bringing something discarded back to life…I used to have a workshop doing just that and do it on a much smaller scale now. You’ve struck a chord with this post, as I’m sure you can tell. Much love flowing to you all with hugs. ❤ Xxx

      Thank you, Jane.. watching it just spoke to me and struck a chord I had to share what I felt.. I think making socks from your left over yarn will have a story to tell maybe a card telling that story would be lovely and make them even more special… Lots of love flowing back to you Jane xxx
