I learnt a new word and I love the sound of it: kintsukuroi. It is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with seams of gold. Kintsugi repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the container even more beautiful than it was prior to being broken. Not a very common idea in western culture!
Instead of diminishing the bowl’s appeal and appreciation, the “break” offers the container a new sense of its vitality and resilience. The bowl has become more beautiful for having been broken. One can say that the true life of the bowl began the moment it was dropped!
Imagine you are that clay pot: celebrate your flaws and imperfections. Remember that you being you is what makes you uniquely beautiful.
And remember: “The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway
An interesting essay on the art of kintsukuroi can be found in Flickwerk, The Aesthetics of Mended Japanese Ceramics.

"My hair can actually say a lot of things!"
My dream is to become a great kunoichi like Tsunade-sama!
kay`, im done now. I’m going on a Rock Lee Hiatus(if its even possible).
It’s what I can do best. ♥
At least we can say that Neji is the only one for whom Lee cried real tears.
And I think he will not look for a new rival, Lee might think it would be an insult to Neji’s memory.
Nardo should go to look for the Seven Dragonballs.
