Challenges are what make life interesting! Overcoming them is what makes it beautiful!
This pandemic has taught us many life lessons. When the whole world was sitting at home scrolling social media there came a new wave of performing challenges on social media. It made everyone’s life interesting and happening just by sitting at home. Many people did push-up challenge, gardening plants challenge, making Dalgona coffee challenge etc.
Recently I did one of my life’s best challenge where I learned the most beautiful lesson of life. I am feeling really glad that I am sharing that challenge with you guys. Promise me one thing that you all will do this challenge.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art. In this challenge, I took a broken cup and I tried to fix it with the help of glue and melted iron, you can do it with glue only. It was interesting to do this challenge but you know the most important thing to learn from this challenge is “Broken can be beautiful again”. Many of us break a bowl or vase and think: garbage. But the Japanese art encourages us to the see potential for beauty in reconstructing the broken pieces. Some things become more valuable when broken for instance hearts, relationships and the broken hearts of people in these broken relationships. But the art of Kintsugi these broken pieces are put back together again. The cracks are filled again to remind all of us that broken can be beautiful again. We all get feared when it comes to being broken, we all are running away from our pasts, and we all have that pain in our hearts but Kintsugi tells us that there’s no need to run away from memories, no need to be afraid to be broken because broken pieces can be brought back together. We all have been taught one thing if something breaks it is of no use. The Japanese art reminds all of us that memories may fade but don’t be afraid to remember, the importance of being stayed glued in this together, to teach us that our past is what actually helps us reset. I have done many challenges during the pandemic but this was one of the best challenge of my life. I learned a beautiful lesson that this Japanese art has taught me. I still have that beautiful mug with me. Whenever I feel low I see that mug and it gives me motivation that I can stand up again and try to do that thing. Participate in this challenge!
