Bridges- Crossing Into Your New Life!

Bridges- Crossing Into Your New Life!



"Don't let the past affect your future" 

I'm fascinated by Bridges... 


Crossing them

Building them

Burning them


Throughout the years, I have always been intrigued by bridges- both physically and metaphorically. Covering both coasts,  I've walked across the George Washington Bridge in New York, and I've walked across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. 

Each time, I found walking across both exhilarating  and frightening at the same time- hundreds of feet up in the air; swirling waters below- wind whipping my hair. I walked as close to the inside rail (closer to the traffic) than to the water side. I walked briskly- heart pounding; yet didn't want to stop and going back was not an option. 

Something propelled me forward- and although I don't quite know what it was- there was no choice but to move along. Luckily, a stranger stopped and asked me to take a picture of him and his wife; I handed him my camera and asked for the same.

(Feb 2014) walked across the Golden Gate Bridge! Was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. I highly recommend breaking out of your comfort zone- it certainly does wonders for the soul! (and yes, it was very windy!)


Let's talk about metaphorical bridges- I find it fascinating that we refer to stepping into the unknown as "crossing bridges into your new life: Or; when we've cut someone or something out of our lives- it's "don't burn your bridges." or as we progress in our careers- we refer to "building bridges..."

I do believe in letting the past go- and freeing up the space to create the NEW. It makes sense to use the imagery of bridges to forge the way into a new life.

Bridges-  let them be the way to transition to new lands; to seek new experiences and enjoy new adventures!  

Let's start 2020 by leaving the past behind- and crossing the BRIDGE into our highest potential!

ARE YOU READY to cross the bridge?? If it's a HELL YEAH!  and you're looking to step into live more fully from your heart? 



 love, cathie

"Embrace Your Fear"

I'll be the first to admit- this year has been a bit of a drag so far.

For me personally, still going through the ups and downs of cleaning out the estate of a family member, dealing with other people and their greed has been an all consuming task.
I was losing my mojo. A bit lost and finding myself afraid of making the wrong decision, I was starting to feel paralyzed.
But, as I'm a Sagittarius with more than a healthy dose of optimism, I decided to shift my mindset and it turned out to be a game-changer.
How did I do that?

When life has become too much to bear-
Begin again
When you can't decide to go here or there-
begin again
When you feel like you've fallen and can't get up-
begin again
When you're running on empty and haven't filled your cup-
begin again
