How do you bounce back from adversity, imperfection or just bad days? • My go-to strategy is usually a bath (plus or minus books/chocolate/light sniffling). But I think I might make the Japanese concept of "kintsugi" my new strategy. I was lucky enough to get this #gifted copy of Kintsugi: Finding Strength in Imperfection by Céline Santini @kin@kintsugi_spirit @celinesantiniauteur and published by @andrewsmcmeel, and I love it! Not only does it have amazing illustrations, it explains the concept of outlining broken pottery lines in gold to make an imperfect piece even more valuable than it was before it broke. • If the applications to the human experience aren't obvious enough for you, don't worry ... the book is filled with tons of beautiful quotes, haiku, images and explanations for how to apply this to your own life. I can already tell it's going to be a bedside go-to for me, especially as we're dealing with some tough losses here at home right now. Thank you SO much, Céline ... both for the book and for being a beautiful person I've loved getting to know! • Guys, I seriously can't recommend this book highly enough. Love it love it. Go check it out @kintsugi_spirit.

happy easter from mom + me!🌸🐰🐣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ spending my April back in our hometown island of Kyūshū . mom flew in to shoot with us. (which she never does) same park, same cherry blossom gazing from when I was little: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ this month has been full of the most personal growth & personal development along with new work development. but first comes the self, here are the greatest takeaways from my Japanese 🇯🇵mother: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1- life itself is transient, like the cherry blossoms we see the beauty from the passing of time + value it when it’s there and value it as it changes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2- find your roots to clear the path, I’m the youngest member of the entire Kumai family + the torch is passed on, keep your fam artist legacy alive ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3- be honest, be loyal, be smart, good things come to those who are wise + true ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4- take great care of yourself, practice humility & you’ll have plenty of real collagen in your cheeks 5- choose a partner you can have fun with, travel, laugh and chase big dreams: if you come from different places, it will only help you to be even more mindful. someone cool af (she didn’t say that, but I did) 6- real beauty comes from a glowing spirit + the beat of their heart. anyone can be pretty, but beauty from the inside is the most attractive trait, radiate. 7- struggle was a part of my grandfather’s art legacy, it will be a part of yours, too. nothing great, with passion or new is without struggle. 8- if you can do something great with your life; why not? The crew and I thanked mom for coming out + sharing her sensei knowledge with us... a school teacher in Encinitas Ca for decades, she’s our favorite bozz xxxx ck
