It seems that this blog has very much so become a more personal outlet for me. I try to not be so specific because , well, I want everyone who reads this to take something from it. I don't know what it is, or why it is, but I have been learning a lot about life in general; I can't explain it, but I do know that I have had a heightened sense of intuition about life situations. Today was no different. Here is that lesson as I saw it......

Timing seems to be one of the main components of a successful existence. Whether it be that girl that you just couldn't come to terms with, the job that was just not what you were looking for, or the house that someone bought right out from underneath you, timing will dictate much of your future. Your timing has also dictated much of your life up until now.

I had an epiphany today as I was reflecting on my life in the past year (the general theme of this blog nowadays!); I walked around the corner to get a diet coke and Marci, the owner of our vending machines, is standing there filling up the sodas. I asked her for a DC and she handed it to me. As I asked her how much she says, "On the house". Great!!! Wow, that rocked. It seemed that my timing was right on at the time. Earlier in the day, I texted a friend a little hello and it seemed that they were having a super bad day and it brightened up their day beyond all of my expectations. It seems that today, my timing was ON POINT.

Timing has been at the forefront of my life; the more hours I live and interact, the more I realize that even the smallest thing could have a massive impact if timed correctly. I also understand now that timing is not a situation that is out of your control. I believe, that much like luck, the choices you make right now have much to do with the success of your timing. Taking my prior anecdote about my friend and their bad day, it was due to the fact that I know this person and they might like to hear a few choice, nice words from me. I chose the afternoon because it is usually crunch time and the stress level might be high. And it worked wonders! It has had much to do with opportunity; if you stay abreast of the important people and things in your life, you can use your perceived timing to make quality choices and maybe gain a few successes. All-in-all, timing seems to be a major factor in the molding of your life as it was, is and shall be.

Maybe we should stop and look around.
