Trust In Timing
It was my first year of college. I was a journalism major. I decided to join the campus newspaper with hopes to write meaningful stories about people and people's lives.
I wrote only one. All four years, I had one byline under the campus newspaper. The clip is now sadly faded and thumbtacked onto my cork board.
One question I had asked the woman I interviewed is still visible. It read: "In hindsight, what would you change?"
I've never met a person that genuinely listed various aspects she would change in her life. I remember sitting across from her stunned because everyone else I had talked to said they would change nothing because their experiences molded them into the person they are.
After finding the newspaper clip in the middle of a room clean up, I came across this amazing quote I've written as a reminder in an old planner:
"Everything you are experiencing at this moment, whatever it is, is exactly what you need for your personal growth. Trust the timing of your life."
