There's a reason why ships put their crow's nests on the very top of the mast; same reason why people climb mountains... 'cause the view's better!
The same with Life.
Whenever you hang your head down low or, worse, bury your head in the sand, you can't see squat!
And by essentially being blind, Life just seems to constantly hit you with surprises, doesn't it?
It's not that Life has it out for you... it's just that those things were coming anyway, and you didn't see them with enough time to duck!
So if you want to see farther, then get up from where you're sitting, or squatting or hiding under cover.
And not just up, but way up! "Up, up and away" Up!
Sure, you may lose sight of the ground... But what you WILL see will be absolutely out of this world!
See you up there!
Keep the light on!
