I am trying to trust.
I’ve freaked out in the past. I’ve worried in the past. And literally everything worked out somehow.
I want to be at step 53949 but I’m at step like 89.
And when I tune in to my hard little head the gentle whisper of the universe just says, “breathe.” “Patience.”
And I’m like, “What!? What do you mean breathe?? Patience?? Don’t you see I need this figured out or else I am doomed?”
There are days where I am so confident about it all. Days where it feels like “Duh. Obviously it’ll work out.” And days where I am like, “Guess I’ll just end up old, broke, and alone.”
I’ve done a decent job at being fairly stupid. At having an opportunity to be more advanced in my career and finances than where I am now.
Then I rationalize that “Everything happens for a reason.” Or that “I am exactly where I am supposed to be.” Or “I’ve taken a detour so I can become who I was destined to be.”
Blah. Blah. Blah. All the bullshit I need to tell myself so that I don’t feel so horrible about my poor decisions.
Maybe I am too hard on myself. Or maybe I am not hard enough.
Honestly, sometimes I am just downright lazy.
And sometimes I don’t give myself enough credit.
I don’t want to make this another one of those posts where I just complain to you about everything.
When I stop with the tales of woe I can actually see the truth of how privileged and lucky I am.
I live in one of the most beautiful places in a privileged country. I have access to good, organic food and clean water. I have amazing, supportive friends. I have family who care for me. What the fuck do I have to complain about?
This post was supposed to be about timing, as you can see by the title above.
So let me touch upon that for a sec.
I exist. There is something rather than nothing. There is a force operating on the atoms within reality. This force is called time. Today, as we know it, is May 13th 2019. It’s 2:33 P.M in San Diego, California where I am currently existing. Out of all the possibilities in this possibly infinite universe I was made to exist here in this moment. And for what purpose? And to what end?
I don’t fucking know. To sit here and write this message, I guess. And maybe, possibly, to inspire the world.
