By facing forward we might be said to be facing challenges square on. Yet our approach to handling issues varies according to any number of factors including our outlook, our interest in the matter and the wishes of our ‘significant others’.
However, by a) accepting the need to do something and b) doing whatever we perceive as the necessary input, we are taking responsibility for our situation as we go about facing forward. Ideally we will be successful, but this cannot, of course, be guaranteed in all cases.
From the point of view of doing our best, facing forward with our full being offers us the possibility to bring our potential into play.
So often many people appear to just let each moment drift through their field of attention, without applying any effort to interact proactively for the sake of getting the best out of the situation. The results of this way of existing can be found all around us in the form of frustration, tension and a lack of concern for others.
Facing forward may not always be the right response to the moment however, especially when a step back to possibly view the bigger picture would be beneficial. It is for us to apply our experience and intuition to each instance, trusting our eventual efforts are victorious.
