Sometimes the connection from a problem (or an opportunity as others call it) to a solution is just a little way ahead, a bit further. Just like a bridge hidden behind some trees and bushes. It takes determination and perseverance to search for it, to get to it, to find it. And that’s where we are all lacking.
It’s not an easy task as people makes us believe. It takes insurmountable amounts of energy to maintain the right approach and attitude; to not falter or weaken; to not give up. It takes not only yourself, but more. It takes your friends support and dependability; it takes your family strength and protection; it even takes the humble smile of that unknown person in the mall or grocery store, and it takes that higher strength that nobody understands and that different people explain in different ways. I will let you define that as whatever you please for your beliefs. What I am trying to say: it takes more than yourself!
At times we may feel we are lost in the middle of nowhere; a desert, jungle, forest, sea, mountain. With nowhere to go or turn, and the exit could be just a few steps away. Just like the bridge in the photo hiding behind trees and bushes. Sometimes you can hear the cars, the noises, the bikes, the trucks but you cant see the bridge until you move in the right direction. And sometimes that little step, that move can’t be achieved without the help of people that care, friends, family and that extra energy that exists and aids us all in a different way.
So whatever you do and wherever you are, don’t forget to ask, knock and seek, to guide yourself to the bridge that will connect you to the other side you are looking for.
