Everything really, is about timing!

 


I have learned that life really is about 


Timing, 


but it is also about     


Waiting and 


Patience….. 


For whatever it is we are waiting for. 



But why, it’s so…….. 


HARD TO WAIT !!!! 


Self-Care, 


Growing UP, growing pains, priorities, learning healthy living, boundaries, assertiveness.


Puzzle pieces really need to be in the right places.  


‘’Wait’’ for it…… 


They have to also be the ‘’right’’ kind of


Puzzle pieces.  



We know our ‘’selves’’ better than anyone else does - in the meantime, we need to focus on our self-care, hobbies, passions, education, career; 


Our selves - first. 


We need to get passed the past and look to the future as best as we can.  


Scars will always be there, but they can be minimized- 

- with your self-care and self-love. 


I myself am getting treatments here, soon, to help me with what I call mommy-tummy - It’s very difficult for me, I have S-curve scoliosis, and have been doing everything right. The evidence is there, I just need this one thing called BODY CONTOURING, now and more physio from a certain place I love.  


In a while, I may post pictures, before and after ones. 


I have dealt with this since 2011 and have been working on getting in shape since 2018. Moving around in bed is hard, vehicles are hard, my work is hard, anything to do with bending. I think I will be taller after this too!


I have certain relationship dreams that are finally lining up, but I need to feel good again! 


Doing the best things for ourselves no matter what it takes - that’s what brings us joy and happiness and fulfillment.  

Somehow we learn to give to receive (love, attention, etc). 


We need to put ourselves first before we can look after others well. 


When you are a child you’re still learning to take care of yourself; what happens when a person has to look after their parents or siblings firsthand?


We lose track of ourselves. 

Lose our dreams, desires, wants, needs, 

Then, we wonder why we feel the way we do: confused, mad, angry, in a fog, etc.


These are some of my favourite quotes:



"Observe due measure, for right timing is in all things the most important factor."



"So much of life is not about whether you're good or bad, or right or wrong, or can afford or not afford - it's just about timing." - A. A. Gill, 'Uncle Dysfunctional', 2017.

"Sometimes, the thing you've been looking for your whole life is right there beside you all along."
-Peter Quill, 'Guardians of the Galaxy.'

"I believe that everything happens for a reason, but I think it's important to seek out that reason; that's how we learn."
-Drew Barrymore.

"Time doesn't heal emotional pain, you need to learn how to let go."

- Roy T. Bennett,' The Light in the Heart', 2016.
