Do you look to your future and wonder how you will ever get there to finally live your dreams? Does it feel like the gap is too large to conquer? If you’re falling into a low and feeling hopeless about an inspired future, it is time to bridge this gap. The word bridge, when utilized in action, is defined by FreeDictionary.com as, “To connect or reduce the distance between.” Visualize a physical bridge and now apply this visualization, philosophically, to your life. All you have to do is work on bridging the gap between your present day moment and the future you so desire.
Are you wondering how to build this bridge? According to Glenna Griffin, SpeakAmerica.com, this development requires, “choice, confidence and clarity.” She explains, “…choices become empowering as each positive choice gets us closer to our goal, be confident in your ability, and the process of self-discovery, awareness and focus on your end goals will get you there.”
She goes on to share how choices are the means of change. And, if you do not have the confidence needed to create this bridge, move forward by leaning on others who’ve been there before you and who are going there with you. With clarity comes continuous movement, a way to gain momentum.
Many times we get caught up in a desire to get to the other side of something or to our future as quickly as possible, but remember the journey helps us better appreciate the destination; it is where our lessons and growth takes place. Learn to appreciate this.
Perhaps, as December comes to an end, you will resolve to build your bridge as you move into the New Year. Choose a brighter and healthier future, surface the confidence to construct and gain the clarity to make it happen!
