I accidentally broke the full length
We have had it for about 2 years. You should have seen the mess it made with all the small scattered pieces everywhere. The loud heck of a noise it made as it fell. Luckily my son was safely in bed fast asleep and no one was hurt. My heart fell. I kinda grew attached to this mirror. Earlier during the year when hubby had traveled I wrote a little love letter with lipstick on the mirror for him. He loved the note when he came home. I haven’t rubbed the note since.
This turned out to be one of those ‘AHA’ moments. When life wants to teach you a lesson. It immediately struck me as I daintily picked each piece up, each piece in its shattered piece looked beautiful.
Why, The shattered piece became its own work of art. And they all looked beautiful. I pulled out my camera and began to take pictures of each little piece. Some where not reusable and some had little splinters in it. I threw the ones I couldn’t reuse and cleaned up the ones with splinters in.
The noise it made, made me think of how we as humans do so many good things every other day. These things go unnoticed. But when one sad or bad thing happens it makes a loud bang and lots of people notice.
Plus we take advantage of the good things we have and only appreciate it’s value when it is gone.
How we easily blame ourselves for one mistake but don’t realise the pot of gold our Shattered pieces have made or exposed. ‘When one door closes we are so busy concentrating on this one closed-door to notice the other open doors thence created.’
Sometimes all we need is a shattered bang in order to get our lives in order.
Appreciate and notice the valuable things in our lives today. Don’t wait till it’s too late. Don’t take advantage of its existence too.
And when that valuable thing is gone. Look at the valuable things it left behind.
What life lessons has the shattered pieces taught you?
Shattered forms are beautiful pieces of art. Unique in their own form.
Don’t overlook the lessons in shattered forms. The wake up call we get. Art lies beneath it all.
Don’t only look at life in the negative form. There is lots of value in everyday life.
When one thing shatters, know this, there’s light at the end of the tunnel!!
