Cracked but not Broken

Week of Wise Words

“One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.” – Linda Poindexter

cracked but not brokenAll too often we find ourselves fixated on a flaw or mistake. Our imperfections play an important role in what defines us.

If you have suffered and survived, you are a survivor. If you have loved and lost, you are a lover. If you have crashed but risen again, you are now resilient. If you have burned spaghetti noodles, you are not allowed in my kitchen. Just kidding. You are now an experienced take-out artist.

“One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.”

Scars are an ugly part of life. The visible and invisible marks of mistakes made are something to acknowledge because they were a part of a learning lesson for someone. Those blemishes add to your beauty and individuality.

Wounds that result from injury to our heart or soul are harder to forgive but are just as noticeable as any you may wear on your arm, leg, or face. The hurt you carry around in your emotional baggage weighs you down and holds you back. Kick those hurts to the curb and accept them as part of your past. Let your healing begin today and you will find that those scars fade faster than you believed they could.

“One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.”

Put your energy into seeing past your scars or helping others heal from their own hurts. Intend to move past what seems unsightly and find the energy to evolve into a greater human being.

  1. Good post. Does it work for loads of cracks too? Just wondering aloud at what point the crack balance does break things. Or do you take one crack at a time and apply that rather than all the cracks at once? I agree it’s the unseen scars that are the difficult ones to spot in others. But they all add to who we are and shape our world or rather, our perceptions of it.

    Thought provoking post and I should come here far more often.

    Thank you for sharing 😊
