My cause of angst?
My cause of angst?
Day 28 (but actually 31): Warning, what you’re about to read is going to be really, REALLY nerdy.
The first thing that came to mind with 28 days is how long it takes for concrete to curate. After 28 days the majority of cement and water have reacted to create the setting and compressive strength of the concrete, meaning that at 28 days, that is as strong as it will ever be, plus like minor strength increases over the rest of the life of that piece of concrete since the cement and water reactions will keep going on forever. So if you think of a graph of this, it grows exponentially over time, and then eventually flatlines.
But ANYWAY.. that’s like me. Like my life. How I see and feel about myself and my own strength. I’ve exponentially grown, and have taken all the compressing factors from my life and have become stronger than ever. And I am kind of flatlining, in the sense that growth won’t be as great as the first 28 days, but still going.
Isn’t God cool? He just had me relate concrete with my life.
And that’s a link for the graph I was talking about ;)
Reasons To Be Happy:
- Dead trees still stand and so can you.
- You have five fingers on each hand. One day those fingers will travel from your lap to someone else’s and that person will know all the bad stuff and still want to kiss you.
- Seasons are guaranteed when nothing else seems to be.
Day 29: Strength and passion. Does it scare them away?
Day 28: Today might royally suck. But then it could be really great too.
Day 25 (again): I’m aching.
Day 25: I CANNOT wait to be the future me. The post real-life-and-got-it-myself-intern, well-traveled woman, January 2014 me who has experienced more than most people get to in life.
But also.. I’m glad to be the current me. The one who has painstakingly loved and is finding her worth in God.
