Timing is everything.
I used to be an idealistic optimist who saw things as having “their time” but as I age, it has definitely become more apparent that timing is almost everything in life. All the right things at the wrong time, all the wrong things at the right time…there is one unavoidable thing in life, time’s grip. I’m not just talking about in love, life in general is governed by an atomic mix of circumstances that can trigger an end result depending on the elements involved…and I thought I’d be able to avoid math in life by being involved with the arts, it’s all one big formula.
Then there is always the one thing that swoops in and makes time stand still – a death, heartbreak, shift in priority, pregnancy, job loss. All these variants are just another piece of timing that we can’t control…but I am really starting to question, can we ever really control anything?
A huge piece of control is emotion, therefore how can one control something that they aren’t emotionally invested in? Even if we posses some kind of “control,” can taking things into your own hands really alter the course of reality? It’s hard to believe in fate, but isn’t it curious that some things just fall into the right place, at the right time.
It’s been a long time since I have personally felt that, but I’ve seen it happen to some people lately and I am always in awe of the power of timing. It’s one of those deftly under appreciated powers in this universe and the most frightening thing is you can’t get it back. Time truly waits for no man. Take a second in your day to appreciate that power and the balance between what can be altered and what course is in motion.
On that note, I thought I’d yap about my feelings about dating sites and why I think they don’t work. It fascinates me how many people try to alter their course through these. Sure, you can met someone you have somewhat of a familiarity with but is the stuff it truly takes to make a real adult relationship work there? What do you think? Check it out, bear in mind I’m jaded and bitter. That’s what time does to you
