Suspension Bridge - Bristol.
I just moved to Bristol! Exploring a new city is exciting. New places to discover, new friends, new opportunities...Yet to my surprise, I missed London these days. The old and familiar, my Hampstead Heath, my friends. The image of this bridge reminds me of the way of saying "Don't burn your bridges behind you". Well I haven't yet, London is still there and I can always go back if I want to. I wonder though how much am I willing to let go of London if I know I can always go back there? How much am I prepared to risk if I left all my bridges intact? This reminds me of the time when I took a sabbatical year and moved to Bali. Living in Bali was my dream for a long time so I decided to give it a go. I planned, got rid of most of my stuff, packed and off I went to explore the paradise on earth by myself without knowing anyone there. Mixture of excitement and fear accompanied me to the airport but I walked into the airplane happy as I was reaching out for my dream. I lived in Bali for 6 months and I had the most amazing experiences there. I met many beautiful and inspiring people and I was trying to find a way of making a living in Bali. It didn’t work out the way I expected. Looking back at that experience I asked myself many times: if I haven’t had a job waiting for me in London, would I have put more effort and determination in finding a way of staying in Bali? Deep down I know I would. Therefore, I am not sure about having so called “security net” or leaving the bridges behind is helpful when it comes to make changes in life either if it is changing jobs,cities,continents or partners. Perhaps better approach is jumping off the bridge? Meaning jumping into the unknown fully. It is definitely more scary just to jump into the abyss but how long can we hang on to the securities that no longer serve us?
