Filling the damage with gold, history makes beauty

I read an interesting quote the other day… 

When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.’ 

Billie Mobayed

Life is not always that simple and we experience all sorts of things that make us feel damaged or broken. But in the long run I feel these things all add together to make us stronger people. We get stronger in the places we break because we have to fill those broken parts with something beautiful.
