Just as the author of Eat, Pray, Love book, Liz Gilbert made me fell in love with this word too.
“Attraversiamo” – an italian word that means let’s cross over. People say it to each other when they are walking down the street.
Or should I say “Let us pass through”
But what took me here is the apostrophe S in the word Let. It means that you are not alone- LET US.
Sometimes we are caught up by so many things that we get stuck in a certain situation, finance, relationships, routine and so much hurdles of this life.
It is time to go out and stretch those feet one step at a time!
Sometimes all we need is someone to tell us “attraversiamo.”
Someone who will be with us as we go through the waters.
One that will hold our hand and crossover over with us to the other side.
I also liked how Laura, on her blogpost stated it.
“Imagine walking down the ‘street’ with someone you love and you want to go to the other side but it’s just too much to do alone. Attraversiamo. Let’s cross over…together. Or better yet. You want to cross over but you just don’t have it within you to say it. The person you love and who loves you says it. Attraversiamo. They say it because they know you and they want to walk to the other side with you. It’s beautiful isn’t it?”
May it be a lover, a family, a friend or a complete stranger… I pray that you’ll find someone to cross over with 🙂
Coz’ I have found Him. I can just feel Abba’s gentle whisper “attraversiamo” my daughter. You got me.
