“If you make the mistake of looking back too much, you aren’t focused enough on the road in front of you.”
I’m going to admit, I do both, but over the past years, I’ve been getting better in keeping my focus on the road in front of me. Sometimes, I feel the road and I move together. At other times, the road leaps up ahead while I lose myself in the landscape, reminding me with a gentle nudge why it’s okay to pause once in a while but essential to keep moving forward.
Note to self: Re-adjust the lens if need be, but look ahead, look straight up and move on. No matter what the lessons of the past have taught us, life can only be lived forwards.
What’s your take on this? Which of the two comes most naturally to you—living in the past or looking ahead into the future? Or is it a bit of both?
Frozen in time: Throwback to our one-of-a-kind and perhaps, a once-in-a-lifetime road trip, along South Africa’s Garden Route, with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains in the distance. Probably, somewhere close to the Little Karoo, which is mostly barren and deserted and has very scant vegetation with almost negligible human habitation.
P.S. A scenic long drive that lent itself to some interesting snaphots for our personal collection.
