setbacks are part of the journey

I was just thinking this morning how much better my back and neck have been over the last month since I've started treatment with a new chiropractor.  By the way, if you're looking for one, I'd recommend Impact Clinic.  The staff and the treatment are awesome.  Anyway, as I was stretching to do some exercises this morning, I felt something move in my upper back and neck.  Wouldn't you know it . . . a setback.  

But it's not really that big a deal, is it?  We have setbacks physically, we have setbacks relationally with those we love, we have setbacks in our jobs and careers.  I just want to remind you today that the goal is not to get to the place where setbacks no longer occur.  The goal is to keep moving forward, even when they do!

You decide what today will be like.  My day is beginning with some killer pain in my back, but I'm going to see my chiropractor and then working the rest of the day.  It's not a big deal.  I'm going to make it a great day.  You can do the same.  Now, do it!

good stuff J. I love Chiropractic. Working for one was awesome just because of free care. I may start treatment as soon as insurance kicks in. As far as setbacks go, I have recently really been realizing that i am not gonna just come into a Youth Ministry and blow it up to 200 kids. This is going to be the type of thing where i constantly feel like i am pounding my head against a wall as i engage in the slow process of developing meaningful relationships with Youth. This is a process at which i am not proficient but i definitely have to stay strong and remember that perceived setbacks are part of the journey. This is encouraging. Thanks man

Dude, what you're talking about is the same thing I'm in. I'll pray for you and you pray for me. We're both on the right track!
