Z is for Zero and that’s how many days are left in the A to Z blogging challenge.
Zero, like other numbers, represents more than just a quantity. It can also represent a goal, a tolerance, or a thresh hold. And reaching this number can elicit different responses.
Zero can be a disappointment when:
it’s the balance of your checkbook, it’s the amount of weight you lost during a week of dieting and strenuous exercise, it’s the number of rsvp’s returned to an event you’re hosting, or it’s the amount of work you accomplish when a deadline approaches.
But by the same token, zero can be a reason for celebration when:
it’s a countdown to a special visit or trip, it’s the number of items left unchecked on your to-do list, it’s the percent error on your lab calculations, or it’s the balance left on your credit card.
Today, I’m celebrating zero because it signifies the completion of a challenge. And wow, what a month this has been.
Congratulations to all the A to Z challenge participants! And thanks to everyone who stopped by and left encouraging words during the blog challenge. I hope you’ll be back.
