A child once asked me
"Why do we have eyes only in the front of our heads?"
It was a peculiar and random question.
But it made me wonder the same.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to look behind our backs as we walk?
To see where we're leaving?
Or perhaps, what if our eyes were at the sides or on top of our heads?
At the sides, we would be able to look at the world all around us at all times.
At the top, our eyes would forever see the sky and trees up above everywhere we go.
I suppose there is a reason why this isn't the case.
In our anatomy, or in our lives.
We cannot remain looking back from where we came from because it stops us from moving forward into our futures.
We cannot look at our sides or on top of our heads at all times because the world around us, even the heavens up above, cannot guide where we are going.
By looking ahead, we are at an advantage.
We can stop to behold the world at work all around us, and we can stop to look up at the skies up above whenever we want to.
We can even stop and look over our shoulder to see how far we've come.
In the end
In the end We are meant to keep moving forward with our heads held high.
Into our futures waiting to unfold for us... towards that horizon up ahead.
