I'd like to know whether the following sentences are properly connected as far as tenses are concerned. The first sentence describes past experience, but the second seems to refer to the present or future. Is this correct?
If you have ever broken a favorite mug, plate, or bowl, you have likely gone through several stages of sorrow. You might even hopelessly try to glue all the pieces back together, but of course, it doesn’t look as good as it did before. You could pay someone to fix it and make it look new again, but this would cost a lot of money and take too long. Tossing it would be an option, but there is another way. The Japanese art of kintsugi shines with broken pottery.
I'd appreciate your help.
