Some tell me the truth. Others always smile.
I like both types. But it’s not consistent. Because I haven’t given any one person in my life permission to be bluntly honest every day in a specific area I need improvement in.
My readers help me. But not always. Sometimes people give feedback disguised as love. “You didn’t use a comma here or there.” I don’t care.
If I worry about commas, I’ll worry about everything. And then I’ll have a website with nothing on it.
But that’s how everything starts.
Don’t forget that.
I did. But was reminded of this just yesterday in church.
Have you ever read a quote or story that at one time had very little relevance to you, but then suddenly clicked in another moment? You might’ve shouted an automatic “Amen!” during a church service or double tapped an Instagram photo without truly feeling anything inside, but for some reason – in this moment – the words move you in ways they didn’t the first time.
That was me!!
It was in Ecclesiastes 3. It said, “There is a time for everything, and everyone has their time”.
That time when you shine the brightest, when you ruled the world when you were on top. Then you must step aside and let someone else have their chance.
That is just the way life goes.
Moreover, man does not know his time: like fish caught in a treacherous net and birds trapped in a snare.
You never know when your time will come – everyone is different.
It’s good to have goals, I completely agree, but it’s not the end of the world if you don’t have a particular path to follow yet.
Each person discovers their personal passion at different stages in their lives.
Some discover their own path early like in childhood, some others in their teenage years, and some others even in their adulthood, and this is completely acceptable.
Everyone experiences different things and learn at their own rhythm so your discovery of life and the vast amount of things to do is different for everyone.
So don’t stress out if you have not found your own path yet, it is OK!
Don’t panic because you see your best friend making their own way in life and you are “temporarily static”, your time will come, your opportunity will come, you’ll discover your “raison d’être” and when that time has come, you’ll understand that everything happens for a reason and that all the time you waited to discover your own mission was because perhaps you had to learn several things before, or because you had to experience some things, or live through some situations.
Remember, everyone has their own time, and their own life to live, just be good to others, try to make a difference each day in people’s lives, and trust me, the rest will come.
The bottom line is this: stick to doing what makes you happy and the goals that you want to execute because, in the end, happiness drives everything. Never limit yourself to what other people think you should be. Have the self-awareness to know what you should be. You have to do it like you.
Never be half-pregnant on what you want to be because of how someone else tells you how to operate your life.
Be all in on what you want.
Don’t feel pigeonholed by what others have defined your interests as.
Execute against you.
