Timing and missed connections

Yes, this blog has been retired, but every now and then, when I’m in the mood to ramble, I’ll be here.

Something great happened months after my third book came out. It was completely unexpected, and I wasn’t ready for it. I’m still not ready for it.

In this digital age, we have so little privacy, and everything about us can be found online. Some of it has to do with the fact that we want to share everything. Maybe we want to show our authenticity and let the world know that we have similar struggles. This is all good and fine, but sometimes, I like to keep a few things private. These are things that I’m not even ready to share with a close friend or a family member while I’m trying to make sense out of them myself.

But I can’t keep everything bottled up inside. So I journal, and then shred what I write. I don’t want someone to find it.

I couldn’t sleep last night. I finally pushed myself out of bed at 5 a.m., and grabbed a notebook to journal. I was really surprised that I had missed discarding some of my thoughts from 2017-2018. As I paged through my past struggles, I realized that I have been making improvements in many areas of my life, but I still have some unresolved issues. I started to work on these challenges a few weeks ago, before I became aware of these forgotten pages. I guess that’s a good thing. It means that when I journal, my brain starts to work on doing some house cleaning. What I do have a problem with is why did it take this long to start resolving my other issues? Perhaps, what I should have done was to keep my pages for a few days, reread them, and make a list of things that I wanted to change.

And this brings me to this point – Timing. They say that Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. If you are not prepared, then you miss the opportunity. It’s best not to put things off and be ready for all the great experiences that the universe will bring. Life is all about timing. If the timing is off, then things will not work out, and we miss having an amazing experience 💔 But may be, just maybe when we are ready, our train will come back and lets us experience what we missed.
