Some say the hardest part of life is dealing with the other humans.
Unlike most cats and dogs, people behavior is often not predictable. (or sometimes too predictable and that can also be maddening!)
Figuring out how to manage my feelings and judgements about people, and myself, has been a long-time mission and when I discovered Wabi Sabi, that made a big difference (most of the time).
The ancient Japanese practice of Wabi Sabi is about finding the beauty and perfection in imperfection… in all things old, worn, imperfect, and impermanent, from broken pottery to driftwood and beyond.
In my world, I expanded it to be Wabi Sabi Love, to find the beauty and perfection in behavior and things that make us crazy.
It’s essentially about finding the gold in the dark.
