#WordPrompt – Bridge

Listen to the Podcast

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.”

Strange but true, I was born in San Salvador, as an abroad US citizen. It sounds strange, but you see, my mother was 5 months pregnant and happen to be visiting San Salvador. She slipped and fell in a pool and well, I was born. I am a twin, but unfortunately, he did not make and I did. My mother’s side of the family happens to be well of, and I had the opportunity to live a nice life early in my childhood. You know, private school, servant, nice home, and vacations. Things change when my mother decided to follow my father to the United States and well, that is where my story begins. I started a blog a while back, but life sort of hit and I left it behind, but now as I am a bit older, I decided I needed an avenue to share my experiences with others, while at the same time allowing me to open up and talk like I am on someone’s couch, I guess you could say. This blog will be more like an open book, created by experiences that I have had throughout my life. Experiences that many could relate to and what I did or how I handled it, you know after the fact. You never know there just might be a piece of information, idea, an option that someone could use and it would help them through the experience. Just remember these are my experiences, things I have been through, work through, and lived through – it does not mean I am right, but it does not mean I am wrong – it is simply an experience.
