The incredibly inspiring author of Wabi Sabi Love: The Ancient Art of Finding Perfect Love in Imperfect Relationships, Arielle Ford, wrote an article about mastering the art of the Japanese ancient tradition, Wabi Sabi.

This practice – which is about finding ways to love your partner’s flaws rather than letting them drive a wedge between you – is one worth applying to any relationship.

To tell us a little more about it, Arielle gave us this 5-minute exclusive interview before speaking at Awesomeness Fest.

We were endeared by a story she tells about a wife and her husband’s menacing poppy seeds in the kitchen.

Is there a similar situation that would apply to you and your partner where you could use a little Wabi Sabi too?
