When you are walking through life remember to keep your eyes focused. Set your eyes upon the path you are walking, living your authentic life.
Sometimes, people gaze too much on the past that it inhibits their journey. If you are always looking back you miss the things happening right in front of you. You may end up stumbling or even falling. You can become lost in the past, longing for what was and forgetting about the beauty of what can be.
It is okay if you’re looking back to check your progress and perhaps make small corrections, ensuring that you remain on the correct path. Learning from your mistakes as you go is how you grow. The key is to not let your gaze remain there but to keep looking forward. That is how you will reach your destination, your goal.
Always be aware of your surroundings as you go. When you are driving, you look not just in front of you, you also check your mirrors. Doing this allows you to make sure nothing is in the way should you decide to change lanes. The same holds true for your life. Always keep an eye out to ensure nothing will trip you up or cause you harm as you journey.
Occasionally, you will lose sight of what is happening around you. This is when you can make mistakes, or poor choices, and end up falling. It can be hard to glimpse our goal once we’ve lost our focus. If you find this happening to you, take a beat, re-focus and continue on. Get back on your intended path.
The worst possible scenario is when you lose sight of the picture you have for yourself. This is when you can become lost and stray from your intended purpose.
When the vision we have for ourselves is gone, it brings with it feelings of hopelessness. These feelings can lead to frustration and anger. Feelings, which when left unchecked, usually end up being released on those closest to us. This hurts them and in turn, does further damage to ones’ self-esteem.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to regain the vision you have for yourself. Once you know what your intended path is, walk it. Make sure as you go to keep your eyes focused.
