Throughout life people will tell you what you should and should not be doing. Society will provide general standards and timelines of where you should be at in life by a certain age. The truth is, everyone grows, learns and develops at a different pace. All too often do we find ourselves comparing our chapter one with someone else chapter eleven. Or listening to people who don’t have to personally deal with whatever consequences or rewards your actions reap.
Something I’ve had to learn to do is trust my personal timing. Trust the timing God has designed specifically and absolutely for me and only me. As I grow older I realize that you can’t be happy with anything in this world, as long as you are not happy with yourself. You can’t look for happiness in other people or in what other people do for you — it seriously has to come from within.
