I used to think that any movement going backwards was a hindrance. That I’d fail once I started feeling myself digress. I was too afraid of what would happen if I ever found myself retracing my steps. But through my journey of life and adulting, I’ve learned that sometimes going back a couple of steps isn’t as bad as we think it is. Sometimes that step back is necessary so we can reevaluate our situations or circumstances.
This is where I am in my life, I was able to take two steps forward, but when I stalled I had to take a step back to refocus, redirect and find a better way to continue. I told myself I’d never move back in with my family. I loved my independence too much, I loved having my own space, and not having to keep up with others all the time. But God knew I needed them more than I was letting on. Taking that step backwards sometimes feels like a bad thing, but in my experience I’ve learned a lot more from just that step. Think of it as, you have an idea of what’s in front of you and now you have a little more time and knowledge to find a better way going about it.
Two steps forward and one step back. We are still pushing forward and progressing. It might take a little bit more time than we wish it would, but we have to remember it’s all in God’s time. So instead of dreading that fateful step backwards embrace it with an attitude of GRATITUDE because it’ll help you. Don’t be afraid of taking a little longer in your journey. Your blessing will come accordingly!
Happy October!! Remember to keep it sassy? and I hope you all have a great rest of you week!
