Burning past bridges
I remember watching the movie “Kelly’s heroes”. It was cool and fun. That is classics now and Clint Eastwood as well as other actors’ performances was great. The song that gives the theme to the movie was ‘Burning bridges’. That is a very good idea for anyone who wants to advance in his dreams. You have to burn all your past bridges: both your failures and your successes.
In most cases you have to burn some of your memories too. I mean you have to stop associating them as something that was the best in your life. Remember, if you want to live and not merely exist you have to believe that the best is yet to come. Nobody, except you can find your path. And nobody can walk that path, except you. So, why listen to those who are outside and staying behind. They are either going nowhere, or they are going their own paths and haven’t got a clue of what it is to walk your path. Only you know the price, pain and what it takes to walk the path.
So, what is keeping you from marching forward your way? Is it friends, memories, family, your own false beliefs? Do you think you are finished? Well, I have some good news for you: you are not finished and if you dare to believe then the best is yet to come.
Christians say that God is the God of new beginnings. Are you ready to embrace a new beginning? Or you prefer staying in your past memories, embracing and kissing your past bridges? Be brave to forget your past and get ready for new victories and passing (conquering) new bridges. And then burn them too.
Never give up if you fail to get past new challenges. They will succumb if you do not give up. Ok, so let’s burn those bridges and go forward.
