Standing at a bridge that had been washed out by erosion I thought about my life. Our past is behind us, and when I would think of the past, the negative would rush forward. I had to overpower that oppression with moments that made my heart sing. Then I thought about the present, which is where I stand with my dreams beside me guiding my way. I visualized the other side where my dreams are beyond me. It was amazing how hope started flooding my mind with breathtaking clarity and beauty to move forward.
