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.
What has kept you motivated in life?
