“True wisdom is recognizing that life is about being patient and remaining at peace and centered whilst knowing that all takes place in Divine Timing not our own.” – Tanja Jaeger
I discovered two ridiculously good-looking things last week – the photomontage and quote above which got me thinking…
… Yes indeed, everything does happen for a reason and sometimes it takes a day or sometimes a year to figure out what that reason is and even longer to accept it. I put this all down to timing in life.
This year I have learnt to follow my instinct and to follow the path it leads me on. For someone who constantly over-analyzes and tries to force things, this year I have learnt to wait, ponder and wait a little longer before acting. That’s how I landed up in this amazing job. I had a few interviews and offers but something was holding me back, making me pause for a bit and then it all happened. I started working on M/Y Solaia and have had the most incredible journey over the past five months all the way up to gorgeous Nova Scotia and back down to Florida.
In the past, I have got very frustrated with timing in life as it has directed my path away from others that I deeply cared for and thought I would be aligned with for many years. Yes, I know it doesn’t help to be a restless nomad like myself 😉 but I think sometimes we try force things which are just not meant to be.
Last week, I went out for dinner with a friend and the topic of timing in life kept coming up in our conversation. I was amazed how lucky he has been with timing in his career and life…he’s one of those people who just happened to meet the right people at the right time and place and got fast-tracked to the front of the queue in #winning in life. Perhaps it’s his positive attitude, laid back nature or maybe he’s finely tuned into his intuition. Either way, it’s working for him and we could all learn a thing or two from peeps like this.
So I will continue to work on one of my 2012 New Year’s resolutions to go with the flow, follow my intuition and see where my inner truth guides me. My challenge to you – take a break, have a Kit-Kat and cup of tea to think about your life and whether you are forcing things or need to chill out, like me, and have faith that your future is going to be everything you desire and more. Have a good week everyone! xoxo
*Please note: the photomontage’s romantic lovey-dovey theme doesn’t really relate to this blog post. Many thanks.
