Not sure if anyone else gets these emails from Word Press, ok wait a minute, I am sure you do, what I meant was, does anyone reads these emails. You see the other day I received an email from Word Press with a word of the month (#WordPrompt). I am sure that I have received these emails before, but I probably just deleted them. Now, for some reason, I decided to open this email and found out it was a prompt. This one happened to be the word “Bridge”, and it said to all writers, video creators, artists, and so on to create something related to the word “Bridge” and share it. I thought this was a good idea and I think from now on I will take a moment and read these emails. So here is my take on the word of the month from Word Press, “Bridge”.
When I think about the word bridge, I think about the connection between my life as a child and now as an adult. I feel that is exactly how my life has been, one long bridge, with moments where it felt that I was going to fall or the bridge was going to break. I thought maybe it should be more about the path we each take, but then I realize when I saw the word bridge that life is one long bridge – let me explain. We do a balancing act (Swaying of the bridge) with all sorts of things within our lives, such as work, life, relationships, goals, and so on. Eventually, these experiences connect our past with our desired future. That connection between remembering things that we went through or experienced to things we want to achieve, is really the bridge and for many of us, it has been a long swaying bridge, with many moments of uncertainty.
The word bridge to me means a connection, and what that connection is, depends on each individual and what they desire. It is and will be different for everyone, but in the end it comes down to a connection, and what a better way to illustrate that connection, but with a bridge. We hear things like, “The past does not define us”, “Don’t dwell on the past”, and things like that, and I agree to an extent because even though we should not allow the past to define us, we should not forget it either, but instead use the things we learned along the way as a tool, a way to move forward intelligently and more importantly share these with the world. The connection you make with the experiences you had, I believe if we do it correctly, we can move forward and achieve what we want. Yes, the bridge will sway, and even at times, it will feel as though it will break, but if you hang in there, I believe that once you reach the end of the bridge, it will be incredible.
“So, my take on the word “Bridge” is
the connection we have between our childhood and our adulthood”.
As always, I do appreciate you stopping by and taking a moment out of your day to read or listen to my post. With that, I leave you with this thought, “Think about what the word “Bridge” means to you and share it.”
