I finally put together a content calendar for the next two months for the blog and today I had plans to write another Phoenix date night series. But the more I thought about it, the more another topic came to mind. Don’t worry, Phoenix date night series will continue but something in me told me that this was more important.
So I’m going to be talking about trusting the timing of your life.
Growing up, I always pictured my life and my career. I always thought I’d be married at 25, making tons of money, and popping out two kids by the time I was 27. Let’s all collectively laugh together now. Because where am I now? No where near that.
But guess what? That’s okay. Or at least it is now. It took me some time to get here.
The older I get, the more I become comfortable with where I’m at in my life. I’m relieved that I didn’t marry that guy I was with at 20 . And I’m glad that I’ve spent most of my life traveling rather than working a 9-5 job that would ultimately make me miserable. And it may have taken me longer to figure out what I want to do career wise but I finally feel like I’m in a spot where I am working towards something that I genuinely enjoy.
Every year I get older, the happier and more content I become and that’s a feeling that I genuinely believe that everyone else should experience in their life.
Scrolling through Facebook and Instagram is one of the quickest ways for us to feel inadequate. Everyone from high school is getting married, having babies, or getting that really big promotion at work. But what we don’t see is everything that is happening behind the scenes. It’s easy to show the good sides of life. We tend to shy away from talking about the real struggles.
Marriage isn’t easy. Kids are most definitely not easy. And working up to getting that promotion could have been the cause for a lot of late nights, stress, and tears.
Maybe it’s because I’m a believer in the universe and it’s timing, but I believe that I am exactly where I need to be right now. And it may not always be easy but life isn’t meant to be easy. I will accomplish what I’m meant to accomplish when I’m supposed to. I will marry the love of my life when i’m supposed to. I’ll have kids (or not have kids) when I’m supposed to.
It will all work out the way it’s supposed to, you just have to learn to be patient. And I believe that’s one of life’s hardest lessons.
