It’s almost the end of the day and a combination of code just finished owning me in the worst way. It’s one of those days where you hope you’re not losing brain cells and you remember being much smarter in college.
I spent the majority of the day working on one of those projects that could best be referred to as “cake.” Yes, I said cake; no you’re not hungry, now focus.
Or at least that’s what you referred to it as in your head while you non-nonchalantly strut to the so-called challenge.
You walk up to this “cake” and realize it’s a not as nice as it looked from far away. Before you know it, you’re close enough to realize you bit off more than you can chew and the only thing you have left to do is to continue chewing until the pieces are small enough to swallow.
I have a few of these a month. Then of course I come back the next day with a new way of thinking and a fresh coat of deodorant and tackle what once seemed impossible. It’s at these times that I am happy I went through the whole ordeal only because I feel that much smarter/stronger/what-have-you.
I am thankful for so many things but if I had to point out one thing I’m thankful for at this very moment it would be resilience. It’s the thing that every child has an over-abundance of, it’s the thing that keeps us going, it’s the thing makes us all look like He-man or She-ra.
So, thank you resilience for reminding me that everyday is a new day and a chance to make things right.
Take us out Will.i.am.
