I Hope You Never Have To Rush Anything Because Of Time

I hope you never take a wrong leap of faith because you think that if you don’t do it now, you’ll never do it. I hope you don’t let people who pretend to live their life to the fullest make you feel like yours is not fulfilling enough and that you need to jump on the bandwagon now or else you’ll miss the train.

I hope you don’t fall for the wrong person and settle because the clock is ticking and you’re held back because of your age or your culture or family pressure. I hope you realize that love is the only thing you can’t rush. Love is the only thing you can’t force.

I hope you never feel like you have to meet certain expectations just because time is slipping by and everyone around you seems to meet them. I hope you don’t try so hard to match someone’s life or dream that you forget your own. I hope you don’t let the world fool you into believing that your journey is insignificant or that you’re behind just because you’re not doing what everyone else is doing.

I hope you never let time be the main factor that navigates your life. I hope you don’t let it ruin the present for you. I hope you don’t rush into major life decisions just so you could be ahead in a race that’s not even yours. Maybe your path is slower or more difficult. Maybe it’s not as appealing as others for now. Maybe it’s not part of the majority but at least it’s original. It’s authentic. At least it’s yours. You’re not trying to live someone else’s story. You’re not desperately trying so hard to prove something to others. You’re living your own truth. You’re following your own pace. You trust in divine timing.

It’s so easy nowadays to feel less accomplished or behind or late to the party but I hope you use that as motivation rather than turning into the theme of your life. I hope you never feel ashamed of your differences or your journey. I hope you realize that sometimes things don’t happen to us when we want them to but they happen when we’re truly ready for them or when the time is right.

I hope you never have to rush big things because of time. I hope you take your time enjoying every moment, learning from every setback, finding strength and wisdom after every heartbreak and I hope you learn how to give yourself a break, how to give yourself time to bloom and time to shine.

I hope time doesn’t become your enemy. I hope you don’t waste your time trying to be on everyone else’s timing or trying to race people when you don’t know where the finish line is or where it will take you. And I hope you let time heal you because it may take a while for things to make sense but once they do, you’ll be glad you waited. You’ll be glad you embraced your journey instead of trying to change it. You’ll be glad you took your time.
