Cross that Bridge!

Natasha was a chirpy girl who grew into an ambitious woman. Her childhood dream was to be scientist. She knew she would need to study a lot to pursue her dream and she excelled in her studies. Even when her relatives were making remarks about her moving out of her hometown for study. Her parents stood like a rock with her. That was the first bridge crossed!

As the college progressed, came the proposal from her friend, Ananth. They were both in love and were living in a happy world where everything was colorful. They knew there might be resistance from families, but together they were a team. Many people questioned them as they were opposite poles and wondered how they will survive together. But she believed they will cross that bridge too when the time came! And, eventually families agreed and they got married. πŸ™‚

The judgement from others is never ending and hence came the questions on getting pregnant. Natasha and Ananth were both focused on completing their PhD and work in field of microbiology. They had promised each other for unconditional support and braved all the remarks from the nosy relatives. After all, that is what the love is all about. Together they could cross all hurdles and negativity in life.

Years down the lane and after multiple failed IVF treatments, they were disheartened. But all hope was not lost. Ananth and Natasha knew that they were ready to be parents and thus started the process of adoption. Registering into CARA and going through all the home studies was not easy. Natasha would often wonder what would happen if their adoption application was not approved. And, she found solace in the thought, ‘We will cross the bridge when it comes to it’.

Fortunately, the day soon came when they welcomed Aisha in their home and hearts. They knew all bridges have been crossed and they were ready for a lifetime of happiness! πŸ™‚

But, does overthinking about any situation really help us?For, many years in life, I believed in the motto ‘to cross that bridge when one comes to it’. Things which our beyond our control might turn into better outcomes when faced with confidence.Do you agree with this idiom? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.

    Such a heartfelt story especially as i know a couple of friends and family who have adopted and faced a lot of brunt from their known people. But yes, adoption is a lengthy process so the agency knows if the parents are actually serious about adopting or not… And yes I have this similar phrase mentioned somewhere in my blog. Same pinch!

      I agree with you too! Adoption is a topic very close to my heart and I firmly believe all the process CARA does are justified. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. πŸ™‚

    I kind of agree we’ll cross that bridge when we reach there because over thinking will make it worse and not productive use of time.

    Totally agree! There are many instances in life where we cannot control things but handling them with patience and confidence can get better outcomes or atleast give us the strength to face them.

    It is easier said than done isn’t it πŸ˜‰ Stressing about what is to come keeps a lot of us busy!
