Timing is Everything

“We waste a lot of time running after people we could have caught by just standing still.”- Mignon McLaughlin

Be still. The thing you don’t go looking for, will find you.

By all means, pursue what you want, but don’t be impatient, or overindulgent.

Kaufman320-257.timingI was talking to a close friend of mine and I told her that it’s crazy how I wanted all these things at age 20, 21, and 22, and I was nowhere near being ready to handle any of those things. Granted I had the opportunity to have them then, but I am grateful those opportunities did not work out.

The insane part about it all, is that you begin to doubt yourself as if YOU were the problem. Such is not the case. Timing is everything. Timing…

You never want to get to a destination too soon before you’re ready of it. Or worse, before it’s ready for you.

I’m happy I didn’t meet the person for me then, or the people who are supposed to place me in the right positions to be great.

Give yourself some time to marinate, cook, and grow.

I am more patient now than ever and from it, it has sown multiple seeds of abundance that I could have never planted back then.

The one universal law that I love and find extremely endearing says,

“What you search is searching for you.”

So be easy.

Something, someone, somewhere is itching to have you. A job, a new company, position, and/or person, is waiting for YOU!

So again, be easy! 😉

Welcome! My name is Sarah Lee and I'm a Business Strategist and social entrepreneur who loves the outdoors, a good book, and scary movies year round! Throughout this quirky, rich, and mysterious life of mine, I genuinely love to 'share' my experiences as a learning tool. I thought, what better way to track my level of growth than by sharing my experiences and the lessons learned thereof, than in my blog? A wise woman once said, "You are your own masterpiece, therefore, instead of mastering it, master you."

One thought on “Timing is Everything”

  1. Now that I’m 32, married and a Mom, I know that there is a reason I didn’t get what I wanted and desired as a young 20 something. I just need to buy some time and believe that good things were going to come my way. AND THEY SURE DID!
