“Your Time Will Come!

Kenya is two hours ahead of Nigeria, but it does not mean that Nigeria is slow, and it does not mean that Kenya is faster than Nigeria. Both countries are working based on their own “Time Zone.”

Some one is still single. Someone got married and ‘waited’ ten years before having a child, there is another who had a baby within one year after marriage.

Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a job; and there is another who graduated at the age of 27 and secured employment immediately.

Someone became CEO at the age of 25 and died at the age of 50 while another became a CEO at the age of 50 and lived to 90 years.

Everyone works based on their ‘Time Zone’.

People can have things worked out only according to their pace. Work in your “time zone”.

Your colleagues, friends, younger ones might “seem” to go ahead of you. May be some might “seem” behind you.

Don’t envy them or mock them, it’s their ‘Time Zone.’ You are in yours!

Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You’re not early… you’re very much on time!”

I think this is one of the best thought-provoking messages I’ve read in a long time. Like me, I am sure a lot of you will agree when I confess that we have all been guilty of assuming the grass is greener on the other side, at least once if not during various points in our lives

We are so consumed by these thoughts that we fail to see things in front of us. Somebody’s always better; smarter; prettier; richer; and the list is never-ending. Yet, do we ever give a second thought to what they might be going through? In doing so, we only end up wasting precious time and being critical on ourselves which does not help things at all!

When this forward was shown to me by my husband,. my initial reaction was one of relief – that I wasn’t alone in going through phases of complaining and whining about things not going my way…. this started a new train of thought in me.. I realized, in the end what matters is how strong you are; you need to keep telling yourself that you are unique ad have an identity of your own; You are the only one like you…there can be no other!

Be proud of who you are; how you are; wherever you are; and when things get you down, remind yourself that your time zone is ticking. Things will happen when your time comes!

  1. I completely agree with the points being touched here. We, as humans, tend to always want things to come faster to us. That is if it’s a job, a car, a house and plenty of other things. That we forget to look at what we have and appreciate it. Everything comes at its due time but if we try to rush it we won’t enjoy it as much.
