We are so conditioned to jump in, to forge ahead, to take a leap. But what happens when, by choice or by chance, we step back instead?
When we step back, we can sometimes see things a little more clearly.
When we step back, we sometimes allow our children to be the heroes that they can be.
When we step back, we stop trying to take responsibility for all the mistakes, whether they are ours or other people's.
When we step back, we have more room to breathe, more room to stretch, more room to grow.
When we step back, we can begin to forgive ourselves for what we can't control.
When we step back, sometimes we regain the energy to step forward next time.
When we step back, we may be going against everything we were ever
taught. But perhaps we're learning something in the process...
