Going Backwards…

When better feels backwards…
Maybe it’s not actually backwards
Maybe you missed something
Maybe it’s actually forward

When better feels backwards…
You’re actually moving forward
You’re always learning something
You’re being changed 

When better feels backwards…
You are being changed 
You are seeing yourself in a new environment
You are moving forward

When better feels backwards…
Remember that “better”
Is all relative
To perspective

When better feels backwards…
Going backwards can make you better
And, see life differently because
Maybe you’re actually moving forward

When better feels backwards…
You’re probably going forward
But, you’re perspective isn’t right
And, you need to take a step back

When better feels backwards… 
Sometimes painful moments are the most purposeful
Sometimes loss is the only way to gain
Because better is relative to purpose

When better feels backwards…
Maybe you’re purpose is changing
Maybe you’re life is about to change
So, embrace the direction

Whether it feels forward or backward…
It’s always better
It will always change you
Because sometimes backwards is forward…


If you’re in a season of life where you feel like you’re not going anywhere, and when you finally move, you feel like you’re going backwards; remember that sometimes you need to take a step back to get a new perspective in order to know how to move forward!
