The 54th Deadline: Bridge

The 54th Deadline: Bridge

Each day, I come closer to crossing that personal bridge I have been transversing for quite a while now. Deep within my soul, I know I just have to keep walking forward no matter what. There are tough days. In fact, there are plenty of moments where I question how long I can keep this up.

Life has been difficult for me for a variety of reasons over the years. I have grown stronger as a result, but I feel weaker in particular areas. I can only hold out for so long before it becomes a make-or-break situation. Obviously, I want the former to occur more than anything else.

Worth the Effort
I have come too far to give up now. There is no turning back after a certain point. Either I make it, or I don’t. Deep down, I question what has kept me mentally afloat for so many years.

Is it resolve?

Is it the support of those still willing to stick by me through thick and thin?

Or I have just been lucky.

Step by step.

Day by day.

It’s an ongoing process, a complicated journey that urges me to look straight ahead.

I cannot obsess about the past. I cannot think too far into the future.

What matters now is I make it to “there” – that elusive next stage that I yearn for with all of my heart.

To overcome all of the trials and struggles, I need to be strong. I need to be brave. I must challenge myself, even if it hurts.

Unless I do so, no one else will be there to bat for me when it is crunch time.

This bridge goes on and on, and the only way to figure out what lies at the end of it is just to keep walking.

Step by step.

Day by day.

Until I get there…
