I want to talk about trusting the timing of your life.
When was the last time you trusted the timing of your life? It’s such a cliche saying, I know.
I read this phrase somewhere in the depths on the Internet a while ago and it has stuck with me ever since. We can only control so many things in our lives.
Timing isn’t one of those things, unfortunately.
What does it mean to trust the timing of your life?
The meaning behind the saying doesn’t mean to just sit idle and wait for something to happen. Obviously, if you sit around doing nothing, what’s going to happen?
Trust that every decision you make, every action you take, everything you say, will either propel you forward, teach you a lesson, or shift you in a different direction than you had originally planned.
It simply means to trust the flow of your life.
So today, I want to share with you some reasons as to why you should trust the timing of your life.

Trust the Timing of Your Life
Don’t compare your timing to others.
The comparison game is a dangerous game to play. Trust me, I know.
Don’t compare your life to others who have achieved more than you because that is not healthy for your mental health.
You may see other people move forward much quicker than you. You may also feel like you’re stuck in a deep hole and can’t seem to get out.
That was my mentality when I was fresh out of high school. I always thought this person has a job so I need to have a job, or I need to start college now because so and so started college already.
I was afraid of falling behind and I felt that I HAD to keep up with everyone else around me.
One thing you need to remember is that that’s their life, NOT YOURS.
Maybe you’re not meant to go at a fast pace, probably slow and steady is the way to go.
Whatever the reason may be, you have to trust the timing of your life because everything that you do and everything that happens to you, happens for a reason.
You may not know what the reason is that is taking so long to move forward but there’s a reason behind all the uncertainty.
Personally, it has taken me a while to realize that and even though I still struggle with comparison, I figured I should invest my energy in something more productive and positive, which is why I started this blog.
Remember that you are uniquely you and no one can be you…but you!
You have your own path to take, so make the most of what you can do right now.
You are unique! With your own personality, quirks, characteristics, that make you uniquely you! You are made with a unique purpose!
I always try to remind myself that I have SO much to be thankful/grateful for – my friends and family who love me unconditionally, I have food and shelter, I’m in good health and so is everyone important in my life, even my babies (my cats lol) are happy and healthy.
Know that your time will come one day, whether it’s achieving getting your dream job, getting into your dream school, getting married, or even buying your first home.
It may feel at times that we don’t feel like we’re succeeding in life if we feel like we haven’t progressed as much as we should but success comes in all shapes and sizes.
It’s all about how we perceive our success and how we decide to move forward.

Think back to all of the experiences that have shaped you into the person you are today. All of these experiences have led you to this exact moment: the present moment.
Everything you’ve experienced, the challenges that you’ve faced, are all lessons to be learned.
A lot of the time, I tend to focus on what I could have done, thus recreating scenarios that just waste my time and energy because the past already happened. Or I get anxious about the uncertainties of my future, hence shifting all of my energy into the unknown, which is honestly, pointless.
I believe it’s important to show gratitude for the things that we have and for being able to consider these questions of life from time to time when we have our doubts.
Focus on the people and situations that bring you happiness and be open to life’s challenges by taking them as an opportunity to grow and learn.
