On the 23rd July, I broke my mom’s slow cooker glass lid! Honestly guys, it was an accident.
The lid was there and before I knew it, it wasn’t. I heard something fall on the floor, it just all happened too fast to grasp and to take in what had just happened.
Just imagine this, that moment of shock, confusion, and almost wanting to laugh in horror (blue emoji shocked face). At the same time (mind you, this all happened in a split second) my sister could see the lid was about to fall but was a second too late from catching it.
And there it lay… all the crystals. The shattered glass formed beautiful crystals, just laying there. I then picked up a few and my sister as though reading my mind says, “broken glass is absolutely beautiful”. Unfortunately, I had not taken a picture, but hoping that the illustration helps.
This incident then got me thinking that sometimes, just sometimes, there is so much beauty in brokenness, that only standing outside the picture/scene can we see the beauty. Moreover, learn and grow from whatever experience life may bring. Yes true, the hurt and damage is done and we cannot retrace time and fix things, but what can we learn or have we learnt from such an occurrence in life?
If this analogy resonates with you, I hope you see the crystals too. The beautiful crystals of life. I hope you pick them up and smile at your reflection, because from here forth, you are only moving forward. You and your crystals. I hope you see things all crystal clear now…All crystal clear…
