Taking One Step Back After One Step Forward is Flow, Not Failure

In this video, I describe the symbolism of taking some steps backwards after taking some steps forward following literal and figurative events in my life recently. At my most recent Zumba class, we were doing an unusual amount of cha-cha steps, which reminded me of this quote by Robert Brach: “Optimist: Someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it’s more like a cha-cha.”
Love it! And so true. This is life, this is movement and it’s how we learn and grow :)
