Building steps to cross the bridge
Our life is defined and directed by the small decisions we make. What to eat for supper, who to spend our evening with, and what thoughts to entertain in our head all help to adjust our sail so that we travel in the right direction. Sometimes we make a choice that leads us away from the edge, a temporary relief. But what action might help us to build steps to cross the bridge? Sometimes this is known as the hard road, but it does not need to feel hard. We can rejoice in the effort, knowing that our decision is leading us somewhere great. Each small step helps to build a bridge over our fear, grief or sadness. Today, when given a choice to find instant relief or spend time building a step, choose the step and reward yourself for putting your long-term interests first.
