I've got a long name that I really love, but people call me Cza for convenience. I am a creative in mind and heart who values happiness and love above anything else in the world. Learning life's lessons and desiring to transmit them to others in the future. Avid pen collector. Joy seeker. Building values and friendships that would last.Please take time to visit my website and read about the things I like.
I love to encourage and empower. Feel free to ask me anything -- in search of some advice, a hopeful statement, or maybe an unlikely friend.
Many times I have been told,
“Do something that exceeds the limits of you.”
They said it would make me a better person.
They said it would help me improve.
I knew there was logic in that,
I knew, being a girl of scientific opinion.
Like a rubber band – when stretched,
It snaps. No, wrong example.
I was thinking more of concrete slabs,
Exposed to the heat of their first summer.
Sizeable they are and sizeable they start out,
Yet once touched by the rays of sunlight,
The heat causes them to expand.
Expand, and expand further they do –
When the cold comes, they contract,
Only to return to a size larger than the original
When the sun shines at greater intensity
In the height of summer.
Eventually, a point shall be reached
When to withstand the heat should become no foreseeable option
So expand, and continue to expand they would,
Bringing about the inevitable – cracks.
Have the slabs become weak? No,
They have simply become too large.
The change at this point is permanent,
Now, they are irreversibly larger.
I’d like to think the same is true with people,
That humans are meant to be hardy,
That rough circumstances are just a test to our innate resilience,
Preparing us to become better individuals.
