dreams not on your schedule

Have you ever been stuck waiting for something you really wanted? Maybe it was getting into your college, landing your perfect role at work, etc. The wait can be agonizing, right? You make all these plans in your head about how amazing life will be once you get what you’re after. But then…nothing happens. I’ve been there more times than I can count. When is it going to be my turn? Why does it seem to happen so easily for others? Is the universe just messing with me? Here’s the thing though – nothing worthwhile ever comes easy.

The best things in life, the ones that truly make you feel alive, always require patience. Think about a delicious, home-cooked meal simmering on the stove. You can smell the incredible aromas wafting through the kitchen. But if you rush it and take it off the heat too soon, you’re left with a bland, disappointing mess. Life works in a similar way. You can beg and plead all you want, but trying to force things before their time never works out well. Instead, you need to trust in the process, have faith that everything will unfold exactly as it’s meant to. When you’re fixated on an outcome, you miss out on the beauty of the journey itself. The next time you catch yourself stressing over when your wishes will be granted, take a breath. Step back and appreciate how far you’ve already come. Your dreams are coming, maybe not on your schedule, but on a timetable choreographed by a higher power that knows what’s best. All you can control is staying true to yourself and keeping an open heart. The rest will follow when the time is right.
