i live in michigan. we have serious weather changes, literally in a matter of hours we can go from 70's all the way down to the 30's! of course this is a lot of strain on car windows, if you get a small chip in your window, but don't do anything about it, it can become a HUGE problem, affecting the whole integrity of the window. case in point, i had an itty-bitty chip in my windshield that after this past winter, has grown into a HUGE crack, from one end the other. *sigh*
i have noticed that "i" can have that same result... as my windshield. i have been MIA from sparks and living healthy (we will call this my little chip) i am getting back on track with eating and exercising... so, i have haven't done anything for my "little chip". so, i stepped on the scale, i had gained back the 12 pounds i had lost, the chip, started to turn into a crack... well, then i went back to karate, and was SO disappointed in my performance, it nearly broke me,
. then i was so depressed, i thought about just giving up (crack getting bigger)
, i went to work, and it started affecting my job (crack beginning to "spider" into other parts of my life... i was short with my husband (more spidering), didn't want to clean my house (bigger crack and spidering), and on and on.
that little chip weakened the windshield, and with the "extreme weather stress" (in this case, my life), the chip, went from itty-bitty to cracking and spidering out of control. obviously, i can't get a new "windshield" (new life), but my spark friends and my close family and friends in my life, have worked on repairing it.
i guess what i am saying is, don't let the little chips grow into something bigger, when you feel like you have a "chip", go to a windshield repair person (a.k.a. a support person) let them help you.
i am doing much better, and can barely see the crack,
take care of you, you are the only one like you, you are special and unique, and very important to so many people!
love to all!
