There is a Japanese proverb that I will always remember. It’s about a chipped piece of china and how it becomes more beautiful because it gains character through its imperfections. This is how I think about myself and all the injuries I’ve had through the years. I don’t look at them as signs of failure or misfortune, but signs of experience and things I have overcome. My imperfections make me stronger.
