1 step forward - 2 steps back

This title sums up my day.

I started off the week feeling highly organized and like I was making progress - moving forward a step at a time.

But today was a different story - at least 2 steps back.

I don't know why...things I felt were well under way heading toward completion just kind of fizzled out and stopped.  Disappointing.  Ever have a day like that?

Always when things fall apart I examine myself first, always.  Did I do everything I should have?  Am I the cause of the problem?  What can I do if anything to solve it?  Some times it is my fault, some times it isn't, it doesn't make it much easier either way.

And then the evening came.

Line dancing - 1 step forward and 2 steps back.  The description of my day came alive right in front of me.

I met with the team leaving soon for Cambodia to learn line dances so that we can dance with the orphans when we go next month.

How ironic that the movement of my feet preparing to 'go' - made the very pattern that described my day so well.
