One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Published January 17, 2019 by tindertender

Driving along the highway the road begins to incline. The engine lags. Shifting down the engine speeds up, accelerating until once again, forward shift and higher momentum can be had.

You’ve probably heard, “One step forward, two steps back”. I like to think of life as driving. Going, going, going until you run out of gas, need to stop, and recharge/refill the energy reserves. It may seem like this causes a “two steps back” situation, but it is only a pause until reserves are fueled and forward movement can begin again. If we do not stop to refuel, we begin to ‘coast’ on fumes … there can be no monumental gains.

Next time you think you are wasting time at the pause, remember it is absolutely necessary should any kind of progress be made. This process must be repeated time and again … if not, you could spin your wheels all day every day and get no where.

Self care is not selfish. Self care is absolutely necessary in order for progress to be made. Pause for reflection and re-energizing allows for planning the ‘next move’ which may assist in maximizing the coming momentum.
