Love is a bridge

February 15th, 2012

You have probably seen a bridge before; haven’t you? Well bridges are usually there with a purpose. A bridge will get you to the other side of somewhere if you choose to take it. Or you can use another way. You can always justify why you need to go another way; its shorter, quicker, easier or I just felt like it; the scenery is better or whatever. When a bridge is neglected it usually shows up in appearance or performance.

If you aren’t aware :) (here’s a clue) I am writing metaphorically referring to the bridges in your life. We all have them. Some people choose to try and carry the wreckage of their past within. Sometimes the weight of the past catches up and will weigh you down. Nobody else needs to know. Do you have a bridge (your own or someone elses’) that affected your life a long time ago that you are still trying to patch up or carry with you? We all do. Did you forget all about it? Your subconscious didn’t. It just got buried somewhere in your soul. Out of sight out of mind. Not really. It doesn’t work that way.

The power of the past can either make you better or make you better.You can choose to face it or run like hell. It will always catch up with your insides at some point in time. Life is like a highway with lots of detours to get us to be able to see ourselves and one another clearer and with love. Life can help us to face our true selves which isn’t always pretty like the faces we show one another until we get to the other side to see the beauty in the broken places where we can cross the bridge and get to “the peaceful place within.”

“Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”

– Henry James

Have a beautiful day!
