Thank Goodness I Didn

Thank Goodness I Didn’t Meet Him Sooner

I’m curious…

How much better would you feel if you could trust the timing of your life?

If you could lean back and trust that the reason your person hasn’t yet showed up is because you weren’t quite ready?

And that…

You’re ready, now.

I remember at the beginning of my relationship with Jack, when it became clear this was going to be a very significant person in my life, I called my best friend and said, “thank goodness he didn’t come sooner.”

Had he come sooner, I wouldn’t have quite had the maturity to embrace something so stable, something so honest.

I wouldn’t have quite had the emotional intelligence to walk this path with him without freaking out at every corner.

And I probably would have scared him or pushed him away.

Thank goodness he didn’t come sooner.

So I say this to you, not because I want you to put your dreams of meeting that person on hold, but because as you relax into even the possibility that it wasn’t the right time, that relaxation makes now the right time.

This is the thing about life.

When you stop resisting your situation, in this case, not having the partner you want, you create space and openness for the possibility of something new.

It’s like doing a mental and emotional decluttering.

And the maturity that’s required to stop resisting your life, is the maturity required to appreciate, acknowledge and fully accept love when it comes into it.

They go hand in hand, ladies.

So when I ask you to lean into the timing of your life, it’s not because I want you to put your dreams on hold, quite the opposite.

I’m asking you to release control, unclench that fist, so that he can finally come and hold your open hand.

Take a deep inhale and on the exhale say, “I trust the timing of my life. I am ready. I release control.”

With love,
