The Other Side

What’s on the other side?

It’s a common question. Someone might ask what’s on the other side of the fence. Or, maybe they wonder about what’s on the other side of the road. Or, even what is on the other side of a challenge.

Do you wonder about what’s on the other side?

If you have a fence around your yard, do you ever wonder about what’s on the other side of it? Or, can you see through the fence and have no need to wonder? Or maybe you simply don’t have any interest in what’s on the other side.

Do you wonder what is on the other side of the world? Do you have the desire to travel and find out? Or are you content to just explore the areas closest to you? Maybe you are content to not explore at all. Or are you content to just marvel at photos from places around the world?

What about a life challenge? Do you ever look ahead, when in the middle of trying times, and try to see what’s on the other side? Maybe picture a positive outcome in your head to help you get through? I feel like we all do.

I took this picture of a bridge a few months ago. I was recently looking through photos for a different one, and stopped when I saw this photo. It made me think of what’s on the other side. I know what’s on the other side of this bridge. I’ve been over it lots of times. I’ve even taken multiple photos of it. But, if you were to see this picture, would you wonder about what is on the other side?

Would you wonder where this bridge leads? Would you wonder, just from the photo, if it was in a city or in a rural setting? Would you wonder what the bridge crosses, such as a river, or railroad tracks or even a busy highway? Photos are a great way to inspire wonder and curiosity.

Sometimes, the only way to find out what’s on the other side is to just look. Wander, roam, investigate, look into, look over, look ahead. Instead of always wondering what’s on the other side, just go look. Cross the bridge and see what’s there. You may be pleasantly surprised!
