Sis let this post be a reminder that you've got now, and you've got next. Delayed does not mean denied. I’m guilty of feeling like I’m not where I want to be or that I’m behind. Wrong, we are all running our own race at our pace.
Don’t get so caught up in everything happening around you that you forget to enjoy the small moments throughout the journey. So often we compare ourselves to others and feel behind or lost. We might look at friends and family who are finding love, starting families, buying houses, doing well at work, or being blessed with children, and wonder: "Why not me? When is it going to happen to me? When will it be my time?”
Let's try an exercise together! Count from 1 to 10, then count backward from 10 to 1, I’m sure it was much easier to count from 1 to 10, t be honest you probably counted a little slower from 10 to 1 than you did from 1 to 10.
This simple exercise was to remind you that certain things in life are easier said than done and in counting from 1 to 10 you still had to count pass 8 other numbers. Those 8 other numbers are pieces of your story that are essential for the journey. Somethings happen in our lives by chance others by coincidence. I read a quote once, that has stuff with me since and will until the end of time, “What’s meant for you won’t pass you by, even if it comes back in around about way.”
As hard as it may be, “Trust the Timing of Your Life.” I hate to be all-encompassing and say “everything”, so I will say things that happen to us, happen as they are meant to happen. Timing is just that, whether it happens today, tomorrow, weeks, months, or years from now.
Let’s take this moment to be mindful and reflect on all the good things that have happened for us and to us. Be reminded even in this moment of just how great you are and that no matter where you are in life, where you feel like you, or where you feel like you should be, this moment is what matters the most. SIS, YOU'VE GOT NOW AND YOU'VE GOT NEXT! Don't let each moment pass you by. You are exactly where you’re supposed to be on this journey.
Repeat this mantra after me, “With every inhale, I align my entire being with the universe’s energy. I am allowed to grow into the best version of myself and I am excited to grow into the best version of myself through my life experience and journey.”
Love and Life Friend,
