In one day we crossed this magnificent bridge six times.
And it was an amazing and different view every single time, six times.
Different times of the day, different traffic patterns, different phases of the sun and moon, different conversations, different passengers, different purposes for the crossings.
Bridges are designed, engineered and built for crossing and for bearing immense amounts of weight.
We design, engineer and build bridges in our lives — personally, professionally and internally.
There is sometimes a cavalier tossing about of the burning of these bridges of our own construction, as if their destruction is of no consequence because a new and better bridge will appear on a different road to get us to the other side of another relationship.
Be wary of such thinking.
The only road you’re traveling that has need of said bridges is your own.
One road. One traveler. You.
Remember: Bridges are designed, engineered and built for crossing and for bearing immense amounts of weight.
Recognize your road is in need of many bridges, personally, professionally and internally. It is these very bridges, when we are willing to test them and to put the weight on them that is sometimes required in the crossing, that connects us to what’s next, who’s next, and what work is available to us for our own learning and growth.
Burning bridges is an avoidance tactic that will never allow you to progress personally, professionally or internally.
You must be willing to put your full weight on the bridge and cross — sometimes as many as six times in one day.
