review Wabi Sabi Beth Kempton ☆ 4 Free download characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Beth Kempton Ify everything and concentrate on what really mattersFrom honouring the rhythm of the seasons to creating a welcoming home from reframing failure to ageing with grace wabi sabi will teach you to find joy and inspiration throughout your perfectly imperfect life This book is the definitive guide to applying the principles of wabi sabi to transform every area of your life and finding happiness right where you are This is a book that seduced me with the cover and has inspired me with the contentsI found this to be a little gem of a book full of wonderful little anecdotes and genuinely useful hints and advice on how to achieve your own little piece of wabi sabi in your day to day life even the smallest of chores can bring joy if you look at them differently and that is a big theme running throughout this little book it seems to be about how you look at a situation and how then to deal with it Life isn t going to be perfect all the time and I think a lot of self help books talk down to the reader by getting them to try and achieve this fantasy lifestyle But that wasn t the message I gleamed from this book it looks in to the Japanese way of life and the people their affinity with nature and the slower pace of life that seems to bring happiness to their lives through the smallest things that many of us take for granted or even miss noticing altogetherThere are personal stories from the author about their time in Japan which gives a good insight into living there day to day alongside helpful hints on making your life work a little better for you by slowing down and to stop trying to live the perfect unreal life humans get pleasure from many different things so find what makes you happy and do of thatThere are also tips on how to declutter much needed for me and hopefully will help me learn to let go of things easily as well as looking at the subjects of finance work relationships and home and applying wabi sabi to those elements of your lifeA wonderful little book

review Wabi Sabi Beth Kempton ☆ 4 Free download characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Beth Kempton 'A truly transformative read' Sunday Times STYLE 'More than ever we need books like this' Jessica Seaton Co Founder of Toast and author of Gather Cook Feast A whole new way of looking at the world and your life inspired by centuries old Japanese wisdom Wabi sabi wah bi sah bi is a captivating concept from Japanese aesthetics which helps us to see beauty in imperfection appreciate simplicity and accept the tran A book less about a Japanese design or art style than on a way of living The four concepts of Japanese style from gaudy flashy to subdued earth colour palette like where I am somewhere between Hade and Iki so uite far from the Wabi Sabi subduedness was interesting But this book is something to experience not much into content itself inviting the reader to contemplate while speaking kind of soothingly to him or her Normally I find self help books slightly annoying and shallow Kempton however has a style and a clear sense of formulation that led me to enjoy the book all though I found the book rather a slow read that didn t really urge me onwards to finish itStill three stars since it was inspirational to read how I could work on my own perfectly imperfect and transient and impermanent to boot lifeI like really a lot of uotes from Wabi Sabi and hope to return to them later All things including life itself are impermanent incomplete and imperfect Therefore perfection is impossible and imperfection is the natural state of everything including ourselves Letting go of what you think should be does not mean giving up on what could be Importantly accepting imperfection doesn t mean having to lower standards or drop out of life And there are at least fifty ways to describe rain in the Japanese language Onomatopoeia is used extensively including to convey sounds related to nature Z z describes rain pouring down heavily kopokopo suggests the gentle bubbling of water and hy hy is the sound of a whooshing wind First we experience Then we reflect There are things that can t be learned without being directly experienced On the mountain the mountain is the teacher Imperfection is not a compromiseWe need to trust and accept and be willing to say I don t know it all but I don t need to know it all I know enough I don t have it all but I don t need to have it all I have enough And I am not all things to all people but I don t need to be all things to all people I am doing my best to be all I can be to those who really matter I am enoughThis does not mean having no goals or ambition and giving up nor is it to suggest that striving for something is a bad thing It s about getting really clear on why we want what we really want outside of materialistic desires for the accumulation of stuff and the pressure of expectation from others But this is what we do The better we get at something the we widen our field of vision We move from puddle to pond from pond to sea The ideal is always changing and as long as we use that as motivation to do uality heart and soul work that s fine But when it becomes an exercise in comparison it s a dangerous place to be I m not saying you should settle for the puddle I m saying you might be happy in the pond and that s OK if that s where you do your best You might feel destined for the sea and that s fine too Just be sure you go there for the right reasons The true beauty is not in the achievement of some kind of perfection but rather in the sharing of the creation itself But let s also be mindful of all that we celebrate who we are not just what we achieve giving credit to the effort as well as the wins The thing to remember is this someone else s success does not hinder your chances
