YOU HAVE TO CROSS THE BRIDGE…
I took the image above when I recently went away for a weekend, (this post will be on the blog soon!), and when I took this image, it made me reflect somewhat on the truth behind the simple act of “crossing a bridge”, and how it applies to daily life. Yep, I tend to be all philosophical like that, lol, jokes. I did however think of it. More so when I was looking back at the pictures one night and came across this one.
How many quotes have you read on “bridges”?? Let’s see, the ones I can think of off the top of my head are:
“Don’t burn your bridges”
“We build too many walls and not enough bridges”
“Cry a river. Build a bridge. Get over it.”
As much as I love all these quotes, the one that stands out for me, and more relevant for this installment of Monday Motivation, is:
“Until you cross the bridge of your insecurities, you can’t begin to explore your possibilities”- TIM FARGO.
The truth in that quote is amazingly accurate. Think about it.
We all have insecurities, lol, I don’t care how rich you are, poor, fat, thin, tall or short, black, white, coloured. You can be the big boss in a firm, or the guy selling peanuts and fruits at the train station. EVERYONE has insecurities that they are dealing with. You may be struggling with your self image, your weight, your body, your life, your relationships- hell, I have those issues too, but we have to find a way to deal with them and move past it. We all have many insecurities, that prohibit us from being the best that we can be.
So, how will you know how great your life can be, if you don’t deal with all the things that are holding you back from being the best you can be, or performing at your optimum? To get to the other side of the bridge, you HAVE TO WALK ACROSS…
It may be a shaky bridge, looking like it could fall apart at any given moment, but, you will never know if you can make it across unless you TRY. Trying to walk across, opens the door to possibilities, of making it across as a start, but BEING a better person for it at the end of the day.
You are in control of what you want your life to be. Along the way, along that road, many challenges will be thrown your way, and you will have to deal with them and fight them if you are willing to make it out on the other side, and be better for it.
You are up, you are reading this, you are alive. That means, you have another day to fight, and discover new ways and new possibilities to one day be proud of the person you’ve become.
You are a work in progress. Take it easy on yourself.
Until the next one,
Live in Light and Love ❤
