Trust the Timing of Your Life

Trust the Timing

Hello friends. For my first blog, I wanted to talk about timing.

I have to trust the timing of my life.

I always try to remind myself this phrase that I read on the internet a while ago and it has stuck with me ever since. We can only control so many things in our lives.

Which is a good thing, considering there are so many things that we CAN control: feelings, behaviors, decision-making, food intake…I think you get the gist.

You may see other people move forward much quicker than you but remember, that’s their life, NOT YOURS. Maybe you’re not meant to go at a fast pace, maybe slow and steady is the way to go.

You may feel like you’re stuck in a deep hole and can’t seem to get out but we have to trust the timing of our lives because everything that we do, everything that happens to us, happens for a reason.

We may not know what the reason is that is taking so long to move forward but there’s a reason nonetheless.

Don’t compare your life to others who have achieved more than you because that is not healthy for your sanity. Believe me, that’s the absolute WORST thing you can do to not only yourself but your mental health.

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 wanted to start 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. I always try to remind myself that I have SO much to be thankful 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.

I know I’ll get there one day and I’ll get to live my ultimate goal of becoming a full-time blogger and so will you, in whatever you aspire to be or do: whether it’s getting a job promotion, getting accepted to your dream school, getting married, or even buying your first house.

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.

    So true! I have a hard time reminding myself that my life is my own, and I should not compare it to everyone else I see. It’s hard sometimes, especially when you’re working hard to accomplish something that many people already have. I live my life though by the motto – everything happens for a reason – and it seems to soothe my soul. Happy New Year! I hope 2018 is a great one for you!

      OMG I’m over here nodding my head so much my heads gonna fall off from how much I resonate with your comment lol. It’s true, it’s hard not to compare but we all have our own paths to take and everything happens for a reason. You’ll get there 🙂 *psst this is secretly my favorite comment ever* Happy New Year!

  • I agree, timing is everything! We often have to be patient to see how things will play out and prepare ourselves for whatever the outcome will be.

    • Yissel R

      Yeah, it’s hard to be patient but it’s worth the wait.

    I love this so much! It’s so easy to get down on yourself and not trust yourself! I have been less motivated when comparing myself to other bloggers. I have had to realize that everyone is different and everyone has their own audience! Collaboration over competition! such a great post my dear!

  • She Knows Chic

    I completely agree! Everything happens for a reason is one of my mantras as well.

    Congrats on your first blog. And you hit all he right notes inthis featured post. Gods time might not be our time but it’s always the right time.

    • Yissel R

      Thank you! And I couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • Tereka

    Wow. Great perspective. God’s timing is not our own. We have to keep the faith and weary not. Bless you.

    • Yissel R

      Preach it friend. Preach it. God Bless You 🙂

    • Yissel R

      That’s great. Thank you 🙂

  • Brazilian Flare

    Great post, definitely need to remember this

  • Nicola

    I always say whatever will be will be and my mum instilled in us when we were little that whatever is meant for you will not pass you. Great post.

    • Yissel R

      Aww that’s lovely. Thank you! 🙂

  • Julia

    Timing is truly everything and its one of the hardest lessons to learn to trust it. Our story was totally NOT our timing, but God knew best and I wouldn’t change a thing.

  • playdatesandprosecco

    Yessss! Comparison is truly the theif of joy. Luckily I’ve found a solid group of Mama friends who keeps me grounded and reminds me that we’re all a mess at times! <3

  • iammyinspiration

    We often try so hard to get it all together, and finally give up. Only with the correct time, things will happen. But in the race to achieve everything, we often forget this. Have patience, your efforts will show up. Great article to read. 👍

    • Yissel R

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  • Kim

    Well said, trusting the timing of our lives brings great peace.

  • wright.five

    Great first post! We’re all a mess at times and never truly know what someone else is going through to even compare.

  • karengiuliana

    Timing it truly everything! I was basically stuck a home for two months and everyone told me to start my blog then but it didn’t feel right and I was ready to speak about why I couldn’t work. A couple months have passed and my timing was perfect, and I posted my first post! My mindset wasn’t in the right place and timing had everything to do with if my blog would succeed or not. Couldn’t agree more with your post. My motivation now is myself, I want to help others and I’m now comfortable in my own story to share it and help others. Keep rocking girl!

    • Yissel R

      Way to go! So glad you went through it. Thank you

  • lilflowermama

    Amen sweet girl and thank you for this beautiful reminder!
    xo, Nicole
