Perfect Timing

1.08.2012

I love Perfect Timing. What I mean by perfect timing is really letting go of the need to follow a schedule minute by minute.  Relaxing instead of freaking out about being “late for a very important date.”

Perfect Time (noun): 1. the moment when you realize that everything is happening when it should. 2. when you forget something and you have to return because you realize that whatever you forgot is actually not making you late, but actually saving your life. 3. right now.

Perfect timing can create some serendipitous moments.

I started this post almost a month ago and I wasn’t able to finish it. I’m sure because now is actually the perfect moment.

I still believe in perfect timing, but I had a realization today: my thoughts about life and my idea of perfect timing does not necessarily correlate with other people around me.  At one point in our lives we hear, “you must get your life figured out before you settle with the one you want to marry or before you have kids.”  We also hear things like “the prime time to have children is in your late 20s.”  or the famous “It’s easier to be killed by a terrorist than it is to find a husband over the age of 40! ”  Why do people say this garbage?

This is emphasized (at this moment) because there are a couple of things I’d like to do in my life: get a phD, teach, travel the world, marry the man of my dreams, have children with the (same) man who loves me, among other things like running more marathons, climbing a mountain, some backpacking trips and the list goes on. If I wait to get my life figured out, accomplish all those things on my list, have my diploma in hand and have solidified my dream job before I start to think about a family, then guess what? I’ll have been killed by a terrorist and it won’t matter because I’ll be to old to have children, right? WRONG. Those quotes should be replaced in society with things like “get married when you’re in love with the person who’s willing to fight for you and your love” “have children when you’re ready to give them the love and time they deserve” “things fall into place at the right time for the right reasons (even if those reasons are by your own choices)”

My perception of perfect timing is not every single thing falling into the right moment, it’s about accomplishing everything that I want to do in life and believing that when I do it, it is at the perfect time. It is important to note that some of the happiest people that I admire most did not do everything “in order.”

So Perfect timing, eh? Truth is, I’m believe in my goals and passions enough to know that I will accomplish what I want in my lifetime and it will be a top-notch life. Yeah, I’m okay if I get distracted by love or by a person or by a passion I didn’t realize I had (when I first produced my goals), but I will do it all, just watch me.
