Moving forward

I saw a commercial on TV earlier tonight.  Not sure what it was advertising, but it said the following.

"If you're not moving forward, you're moving backward". 

Hmmmmmm I disagree.

Sometimes, standing still is all we can manage.  Sometimes it's digging in, clinging with every last ounce of what we have to NOT move backwards.

No, moving forward is moving forward.  That's good.  It's what we strive for.

Moving backward is....doh....moving backwards.  Losing ground.  Losing something we worked to gain.

Standing still is neither.  It is holding ground we've fought to win.  It's a breathing space for moving forward again.  It is not, however, moving backwards.

No.  It is not.

Peace be the journey
