I know we can’t live life from a distance, detached.
But occasionally we want to see things from above, looking at the whole and the how the parts of the puzzle fit together.
“Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it but can describe it only from the vantage point of distance.”
– Charles Lindbergh
Aesop said, “It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.”
He may have meant something else when he said that, but oftentimes the situation does become clearer when seen objectively.
Stepping up sometimes means stepping back.
