Are You a Kintsugi Woman?

In the heart of Japanese artistry lies Kintsugi, the elegant craft of repairing broken pottery with gold, silver, or platinum lacquer. This method doesn't just fix the pottery—it highlights the cracks, celebrating them as part of the object's history rather than something to disguise. 

Many of us can identify with being Kintsugi women: individuals who have faced adversities, yet emerged stronger, their 'cracks' gilded with resilience and wisdom. Are you a Kintsugi woman?
