Whatever that side may be.
Bridges are metaphors for the transitions in our lives. Bridges take us from one place to another and they usually bridge our past with our future. But because they are not our past and they are not yet our future, they represent that unknown in-between stage that can make many people uneasy. We don’t like uncertainty. We like knowing where we will be at every step. Life isn’t like that. Life requires you get on that transitional bridge and walk away from your past (old job, old lover, etc..) and set out on a journey towards the future.
Sometimes the bridges are long ahead of you and you cannot see your destination. That does NOT mean that is isn’t there.
Sometimes you have to walk in the dark and it might be hard to find your way, but there is always a handrail to guide you.
On a bridge you do not have to think about where you are going. You just have to keep going. The path is set for you. You will get to where you need to be when it is time.
Just like on a bridge, your path in life is set for you. The bridge you are on has to take you to your destination (your future). It can be no other way. Trust the many bridges in your life. These transitional spaces are meant for you to grow and enjoy the scenery while on your walk towards the future.
You do not have to have all the answers in life. You just have to keep walking. As long as you are on your bridge, you are guaranteed to get off at your destination.
So how do you know if you are on your bridge? Staying stuck in the past will guarantee that you never get to that bridge and trying to rush ahead and take that speed boat across those waters will jeopardize your journey. SLOW DOWN. Take a walk. Even though you may not know where you are going, if you keep walking, you will learn so much about yourself in the process and you will be delivered precisely to the exact place, at the exact time you needed to be there. Life is your journey, keep moving forward and cross that bridge into the rest of your life.
