I am a bridge!

2018 is off and running!

It is already February and it feels like time has just accelerated.   With my family we enjoyed a wonderful holiday abroad.  We visited Buenos Aires, Argentina and my parents birth place of Montevideo, Uruguay.  I enjoyed the challenge of trying to reconnect with my parents language and my first language of spanish.  It was a great battery re-charger and invigorator.  I was eager to jump back into my practice with a head full and a body energised ready to implement all these new plans.

While I have all these plans to engage with in 2018 not all things always go with the proposed agenda.  That’s life.  So while I had to take some time off to care for my father who was recovering from surgery, I did have some time to think about what the year ahead means to me.

Metaphors have taken my attention this year.  I asked myself if I could describe myself as something what would that be?  The answer was a bridge.  I do bridge very well – not the card game but actual bridge.  I thought back when I used to play soccer.   While I had some speed and ball skills in my younger years I just couldn’t shoot goals.  However, I found my place on the field by being the deliverer of the ball to the shooters.  I could do that very well.  I was the bridge on the field that took the ball from the back to the front.  When I got involved in a cycling club I was the bridge for the juniors to enter the sport.  When I’m on the radio I am the cultural bridge to the community.  In my profession I am the communication and understanding bridge for individuals and couples.

In my practice the significant metaphor is the pineapple.  Yes, the humble pineapple.

The pineapple is symbolic of specific times during a relationship that are uncomfortable, awkward, hard to manage, frustrating and confusing yet holds the potential to be a delicious juicy nutritionment.  Relationships are like pineapple sometimes!  Learn to manage the disagreements with care and understanding and be nourished with a more connected and rewarding relationship.
