Trust the timing of your life…

August 9, 2017 in Self-Development



I am always wondering if I am making right the choices. If I did things differently would I be in a better position or closer to where I want to be. Sometimes I feel behind having not gotten married or had children yet and still living at home. At the same time I am only 24 and have lots of time to do these things. I start thinking about everything when I see people that have already achieved the things that I want in future, some are younger than I am. Truth is we are always comparing ourselves to other people, consciously or not. As the quote explains perfectly, some people may seem ahead and some may seem behind you. But we are all running our own race and you can’t compare your progression to someone else.

It is important that we remember not to compare our paths with others. All of our lives are different and we will experience things at different times. Everything happens for a reason and things seem to happen at the perfect time. There is no right or wrong we just have to trust our instincts and make sure our actions point us in the direction of where we want to be. We get so caught up in planning the future that we forget just to enjoy the present moment.

Trust the timing of your life, everything will happen at the right moment.  Stop worrying and focus on living in the present.

“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh

    I really needed this because I always think I’m behind because it seems like everyone else in my highschool has a car, and has a job, and has better grades. I find myself constantly comparing myself to other people, but really this helped me to slow down and enjoy the present, and go at my own pace. Thanks!

      Everything will happen in time I promise! Enjoy your time in high school without worrying about the future too much – I know it’s tough, but it will fly by xx

    I need this so much, especially because I’ve always felt like a late bloomer. I’m 27 and just got married, which is the perfect age but I graduate university at 25 (due to extenuating circumstances), got my driver’s license when I was about to turn 18 when most of my peers were 16 when they got theirs, and now I can really relate to this as I’m having a hard time finding a job. Even 2 years after graduating and having internships inbetween. It’s hard not to doubt if I will ever get a job, especially with how competitive the job market has been. But I musn’t give up, even through tears.

      Everything happens for a reason. Be persistent and you will find a job I promise! I have been reading alot about the law of attraction, it really interests me and feel it could help change my life. If you believe that you will find a job and are actively looking and applying – The law of attraction suggests doing these things will help manifest what you want. xx

    This is such a lovely quote, truly inspirational. It really made me stop and think about life because we spend so much time lost in what we want to do that we don’t really focus on what we are doing at that moment. Great post.
