Timing, change and action

If I could give my younger self any advice, I would probably say that timing is everything. I would remind myself that with timing comes change and the outcome depends on if we are ready to dig deep for the courage that will be required in the end. How many people do you know happy in their current circumstances? Most everyone is working on something and the numbers keep rising when it comes to people wanting to change their life. While timing will bring change, it also requires a little more sometimes in the form of the action from us to follow through. 
Timing is the beginning, from the way we interpret our surroundings, to understanding subtle nudges, to the signs and the people we meet, timing plays a big role. Everything happens for a reason and it’s no coincidence that the people that cross our path have a purpose as well. They are meant to guide us and steer us in directions otherwise not noticed. Have you ever wondered what role somebody plays in your life? Why you met and what their purpose was? Do you feel enriched or weight down in their presence? Do you feel calm or do they disturb your inner peace balance? The questions could go on, but have you ever taken the time to a knowledge what is going on and have you ever wondered? 

If you followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I am a sucker for quotes. I love the wise words of wisdom and the advice, that when read in conditions of right timing, can move mountains. Every once in awhile I come across a new one that resonates and that either validates my course or encourages me to get back on track. Here is one such quote….
“If there is even a slight chance at getting something that will make you happy, RISK IT. Life is too short and happiness is too rare” 
Powerful words that remind me that the timing has come and can’t be postponed for much longer. Change is upon me and all action has to start with me.

  1. You are right about timing and about being happy in life. I don’t know many people who say they are genuinely happy with all aspects of their lives.
    I have been through what you have said here and I wish I had seen that quote a couple of years ago, I may not be where I am now

    1. I think things unfold how they are meant to unfold and maybe if you had seen this quote years ago, maybe it would have not mad sense for you or reached you in the sense it does now. There will always be some things we want to change, but overall we should never feel that we are held prisoner to our own life. Hugs my friend

  2. I love how you put this. 🙂
    Things that friends have described as “miracles” I have often described as “good timing”… but the things aren’t mutually exclusive!

    Timing is indeed very important. Best of luck moving forward. 🙂

  3. Ahh…risk….that tricky little thing that I just shy away from on a regular basis.
    Someday, I’ll re-familiarize myself with that concept!

    I love reading your blog though, because you do speak words that pull at me.

    1. Awe thank you my dear princess. You know that when the time is right you will, because in the end it’s a matter of he who does not risk is also he who does not win and stays within the same confines. One day you will want to leave those familiar places of comfort but mundane and live the life that is in line with your highest self. Hugs

    1. Thank you so much, I know you understand. All perfect timing won’t do us any good if we don’t take the action for positive change to happen. Best of all of those three and so much more to you my dear friend and thank you for your time. Hugs

  4. I know a man who I hope will read your quote. I don’t know if he still visits your blog. You are absolutely right Rhapsody. Life is too short, too precious and too beautiful to stay stuck.

    Are you making progress toward the change that you know needs to happen in your life?

      1. I know. He is just so stubborn about believing that no one else has ever been down the path that he has traveled, that he deserves cruel judgment and hatred, and that there should be mercy for anyone and everyone, but not him. But, over time, I will get him there…

    1. You know it will and it already must feel like it is paying off in the from of relief, freedom and liberation. Scary at times but the weight should feel lifted. Not an easy thing to do and I’m proud of you dear friend. Hugs xoxoxo

  5. I love this quote. It’s also one of the most challenging things to do. I’ve recently started experimenting a bit more with risking things. It takes a lot of courage but I hope it will lead me to a truer version of myself.
