You Beautiful Thing!

“She is a beautiful piece of broken pottery put back together by her own hands. A critical world judges her cracks while missing the beauty of how she made herself whole again.”

-J.M. Storm

It’s easy to judge when we don’t know the full story, or when putting others down meets a need in our own life. The need to be feel better than, to feel superior to.

Beware of these kinds of underlying motives. Beware of allowing the crass judgments of others to affect how you see, and feel about, yourself.

Remember how you’ve suffered, and how hard it has been. Remember the long nightmare of hopelessness and grief.

Then remember how you faced it, and worked through all the and the pain.

You worked hard day and night as you rebuilt your broken life.

Because you wouldn’t let this be the end of the road.

Because you wouldn’t let this be your destiny.

And look at what has happened, and who you are today.

You’re such a different person. You made it. You survived.

The cracks which are still visible are filled with precious gold.

You’ve been put back together.

You’re beautiful. You’re whole.
