The triangle

I'm back!

I came across a conversation recently. One guy was talking to another about a triangle. As I approached and listened he was explaining that life is like a triangle. He went on to explain his analogy. If your life is 80 years then the first 40 are going up and the next 40 are going down.

What a terribly negative way to look at things. The first thing I said was you can take off the first 20 years as simply development years and that would bring it up to 50 years as the tipping point. Then he interjected saying he was in jail from 20 to 30 so I said then your life really started at 30 making the tipping point 55. We left it at that.

I've pondered it for several days on and off. Personally my life didn't start until I became a Christian at 36 and, in reality, my life began then. At that point is when truly the development years started all over again.I am still in the development stage almost 10 years later. I actually don't see my personal development, or evolution if you like, stopping any time soon. Every day I am changing and growing.

Anyways, the triangle doesn't have to be an isosceles with even sides. If indeed my life is a triangle mine is highly irregular and I believe in the end it will be a quick drop off. If indeed it is a triangle at all. I hope my life is just a straight line going up forever. Whether that be at 80 or 90 or 100!

What is your life? Is it irregular? I sure hope so!
