"When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold.  They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful."  ~Barbara Bloom

I really like this quote. I know so many of us with IC often say we feel "broken" or feel like we are no longer "worthy" or that there is just something wrong with us. I like the idea that, just because we have IC doesn't mean we are broken, damaged goods etc. We are still beautiful, stronger than we give ourselves credit for and as many of us like to say - warriors!

So I hope you can read this quote and find the beauty that still exists in each of us instead of looking at having IC as some personal flaw! We are, each of us, beautiful no matter what.

"You Are Loved - Don't Give Up" - Josh Groban
This song is about knowing you are loved, recognizing challenges in life and the weight of the world and providing encouragement & motivation.
