This japanese philosophy will help you regain happiness, appreciate imperfection, and lead a mindful and decluttered life.
Mainstream culture teaches us to strive for perfection and to want more.
You’ve probably thrown things away just because they got tiny scratches or other signs of use. You’ve probably scrolled through endless feeds of perfect bodies, perfect homes, and perfect meals on Instagram and Pinterest - and then you’ve spent time and money trying to achieve that perfection...and ended up being sad and frustrated.
Let’s stop and think whether it’s really necessary. Perfection gets boring, so why don’t we enjoy the uniqueness of imperfection? People and things age with time, so why don’t we accept and appreciate aging as an inevitable part of life?
The Japanses have been doing it for centuries and even invented a name for it: Wabi-Sabi. In short, Wabi-Sabi is about appreciating the beauty and uniqueness of imperfection.
