When It’s Time to Build Something New

letting go

Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go. – Hermann Hesse

It’s time to let go and see what’s next for me.

This is my last post on The BridgeMaker. After writing more than 700 posts for the past seven years, something is nudging me to move on and build something new.

The signs telling me that it’s time to close this chapter have been around for a while; I’ve just been ignoring them. I thought if I stopped writing then I would let people down. But over the last few months the motivation to write has come more from a sense of obligation than passion.

Hearing the Truth

When you stop and pay attention to what your inner voice, your inner wisdom, is whispering, you are seldom wrong. Said another way, I think we know the truth when we hear it.

My truth is there are other projects, goals and dreams waiting inside of me. Pride and fear sometimes keeps me stuck in what I know. Pride and fear also keep me from living my life’s purpose.

So, it’s time to cross this bridge, look back with no regrets and then begin building a new bridge that will take me from where I am today to where I want to go tomorrow.

Parting Words

The first thing to say is Thank you!

Thank you for encouraging me and walking with me. Your emails, Facebook messages, Tweets and blog comments have given me the courage to keep sharing my heart. Your heartfelt support has meant more to me than you’ll ever know.

With you, I’ve grieved the death of my mother and brother; celebrate my children’s specialness and honored the love Mary Beth and I share. With you, I’ve found healing and forgiveness.

If you would like to follow me online, I will still be writing for Everyday Inspiration. I’m also keeping this blog open so you can come back anytime you want.

It’s time to let go and see what’s next for me.

It’s time to create something new.

It’s time to build a new bridge.

    • Halina – thank you for your warm encouragement! Like you, I’m curious too, but I’ve learned that when I let go and surrender to the plan that’s been created for me, things work out for the best. Take good care!
