One of my favorite bowls was broken a day or two ago.
Beyond any reasonable repair.
I gathered the pieces.
Maybe this chipped object could be reshaped.
Made anew in a different configuration.
The pieces are still lovely, just a bit worse for wear.
The new creation might become even more than the old one ever could have been.
This break was a eureka moment for me.
A new direction that I hadn't completely formed in my head became quite clear.
I am beginning to take the steps toward change.
Broken may mean split, torn, rent or cracked.
A break could be an accidental misfortune.
However a break is also a stroke of luck,
an advantage, chance or opportunity.
This little slip from the hand to the floor is just that.
I am going to take advantage of this break to try something different.
We are all broken in places, but those breaks can be forged into a
new configuration of the person we were.
A plan, a model, a framework for something better.
Take advantage of the breaks life puts in your path.
