Many people talk about crossing the bridge, figuratively speaking, only when we get to it. Perhaps they are suggesting not to allow possible future obstacles hinder our progress today. If so, such thinking seems valid.
Yet once we have reached the proverbial impediment, crossing the bridge in front of us many times becomes a major enterprise. And the importance we give to whatever is on the other side influences us in our efforts in crossing the bridge.
When motivated by a heartfelt goal we surely embrace the action of crossing the bridge fully. In all likelihood, we remain focused on the objective as we go about taking whatever steps are required to get us beyond the difficulty.
A goal set by another person, on the contrary, may not fill us with the same level of enthusiasm with regard to crossing the bridge. In this instance, our progress could be stilted at best.
Crossing the bridge of time I note we have reached the moment to bring this post to a close. Accordingly, let me just end by thanking you for reading this ‘Crossing the bridge‘ today.
