A good friend once told me, ‘everything is about timing’. If the universe wants things to happen, they will happen, at the right time.’ But how can we achieve this ‘timing’? Do we just sit and wait around until something happens? Or will there be a ‘light bulb’ moment, a divine sign, that would tell us, ‘it’s time?’
Some people have been blessed to have been at the right place at the right time. Rick Springfield once said, ‘If the timing’s right, and the Gods are with you, something special happens.’ I think that everyone has experienced this at some point in their lives- meeting your true love, or whether dropping the kids off to school, catching a public transport, or attending an interview- everything, is about timing. If you’re late even for a few minutes, your entire day is suddenly misaligned and thrown into chaos….
If timing is not in your favour, just remember that in the grand scheme of things, everything happens for a reason. Perhaps, we just need to be optimistic about the circumstance. Every cloud has a silver lining. The important thing is that we live our lives in the best possible way we can.
Perhaps, we also must not settle for things or situations just because we think they’re the best we can get. Perhaps we need to learn to live in the moment and just grab every opportunity to learn something new . We sometimes have the tendency to let our hearts override our heads so let’s try not to let our emotions overtake our common sense. I know, it’s easier said than done, but we can try…..
Indeed, everything happens for a reason – and maybe the reason for this will become clearer to us in the future. And maybe, one day…..you never know. Perhaps in another life time, things will fall into place, when the timing is right.
