TIMING

TODAY’S DAILY WISDOM WORD IS TIMING.  DO WE HAVE THE CONTROL OR POWER TO AFFECT TIMING?  IS TIMING SOMETHING THAT “JUST IS” OR, CAN WE WORK AROUND TIMING TO MAKE SITUATIONS WORK?  I BELIEVE TIMING IS POWERFUL. 

I REMEMBER ONE OF THE MEN I WAS DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH.  ALTHOUGH I MET HIM ORIGINALLY IN DENVER, HE MOVED TO CHICAGO.  WE DATED AROUND SIX WEEKS AND DISCONNECTED DUE TO HIS MOVING.  IRONICALLY, AT THE TIME, I DECIDED TO CHANGE JOBS MYSELF ABOUT SIX MONTHS LATER.  THE COMPANY WAS BASED OUT OF CHICAGO.  EVEN EXPERIENCED NEW HOME SALESPEOPLE HAD TO ATTEND A THREE DAY TRAINING COURSE IN CHICAGO.  I KNEW I WANTED TO SEE JOHN. 

I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT THERE IN THE CITY I WAS IN FOR THREE DAYS.  HE HAD ALSO GIVEN ME HIS NUMBER IN CHICAGO BEFORE HE LEFT.  I DECIDED TO CALL HIM AND LET HIM KNOW I WAS IN CHICAGO.  WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME AS ALWAYS.  IT DID SEEM THAT AS FAR AS INTERACTING, WE WERE PERFECT TOGETHER AND HE HAD A LOT OF CHARISMA AND CLASS.   THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT HIM I JUST COULD NOT LET GO OF AND OBVIOUSLY, THE TIMING WAS WRONG. 

I WAS RAISING TWO CHILDREN AND HE LIVED IN ANOTHER CITY.  WE VISITED EACHOTHER BACK AND FORTH.  I WOULD GET A PHONE CALL OUT OF THE BLUE AND IT WOULD BE HIM.  HE WOULD SAY HE WAS IN DENVER, AND ALTHOUGH HE ORIGINALLY CAME TO CHICAGO TO SEE HIS FRIENDS, HE WOULD END UP SPENDING HIS TIME IN DENVER WITH ME.  I FLEW TO CHICAGO ONE LAST TIME ABOUT SIX MONTHS AFTER ONE OF HIS DENVER VISITS.  IT WAS MORE THAN JUST CHEMISTRY.  HE WOULD SHARE MUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH ME, AND HE CALLED ME HIS “BEST FRIEND”.  WE HAD NO BOUNDARIES OR GROUND RULES BUT WERE IN TOUCH AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK.  HE INFORMED ME ON MY LAST TIME TO CHICAGO HE HAD TAKEN A JOB IN HAWAII.  I HEARD HE WAS ENGAGED JUST A FEW MONTHS LATER.  WOULD THINGS HAD BEEN DIFFERENT IF THE TIMING HAD BEEN?

LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE ACTUAL MEANING OF TIMING FROM THE WEBSTER DICTIONARY.                                    WEBSTER DEFINITION OF TIMING-1.  THE CHOICE, CONTROL, OR JUDGEMENT OF WHEN SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE. 2.  A PARTICULAR POINT IN TIME WHEN SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE.  

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION OF TIMING-THE PERIOD OF TIME WHEN A SPECIFIC EVENT WHICH CONTROLS OUR CHOICES HAPPENS.   I DO BELIEVE IN BOTH OF MY OPENING SENTENCES.  SOMETIMES TIMING, JUST IS. SOMETIMES, WE MAKE GOALS AND TIMING BECOMES ABOUT CHOICE.  HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT TIMING?  DO WE CONTROL IT ALL OF THE TIME, OR PERHAPS JUST SOME OF THE TIME?  HAVE YOU EVER BEEN GLAD SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED YOU DIDN’T CONTROL THE TIMING OF SIMPLY BECAUSE IF IT HAD NOT HAPPENED, WHATEVER FOLLOWED WOULD NOT HAVE EITHER?  IS LIFE ABOUT A PREPLANNED JOURNEY ONLY GOD KNOWS?  I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOUR OPINION!  PLEASE, “JOIN THE DISCUSSION” BELOW THIS POST AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT TIMING.  THANKS!  SAMANTHA
