A Twist On ‘One Step Forward, Two Steps Backwards’

At one point or another, we all may have used the saying, “one step forward, two steps backwards” to illustrate feelingss of disappointment, frustration or a sense of gridlock. This morning, a thought crossed my mind and I began to wonder about it in positive terms. 

What if “one step forward, two steps backwards” is really wisdom in disguise? What if in order to best move forward, we stop, take stock (move backwards if need be), and then move forward again?

Not all things are immediately visible to the eye and sometimes, what we think is, turns out all together differently. We could wallow in disappointment and remain stagnant, but that will not accomplish anything. What matters most, is how we choose to move forward.
