We tend to use the phrase “the timing wasn’t right” way too often. Maybe it’s true for whatever the situation was but honestly, we can’t keep using that excuse for everything. Don’t get me wrong—I believe timing does mean a lot in life but it doesn’t mean everything.
Timing rules our daily lives, but should it rule every aspect of our lives?
What I believe determines our lives is the choices we make. Sure, you can blame things on bad timing but honestly, you can also choose to make it the right time. You can choose to not let that certain something hold you back. You can choose to move forward instead of sitting still.
Blaming timing is convenient and simple and I'd be lying if I said I didn’t blame a lot of things that didn’t go the way I wanted on time. It’s just easier that way.
“That relationship didn’t work because it wasn’t the right time.”
“I didn’t get that job because it wasn’t good timing.”
“Today isn’t a good time to start my workout.”
We use the reason “timing” for everything. And quite frankly, we need to stop using it so much. Sure, timing may have a bit to do with each situation but the choices we made that led up to all these situation is the reason our life is the way it is. And the decisions we make after each of those situations help create your life.
Take responsibility for your life, go out, take risks and defy the odds. Own your life and don’t let timing rule you. Only then can you start to make life what you want. Don’t blame everything on time and just expect time to make your life perfect for you. Go make your life perfect yourself. At the end of the day, it’s the choices you make that shape your future.
