As I have an early class today (and tomorrow) this morning everything is down to the perfect timing. After all I didn’t want to sacrifice those precious extra minutes of snoozing in my warm cozy bed.
So yesterday as I set the alarm I worked out how many minutes I needed for the different morning activities: getting dressed, brushing my teeth, breakfast, packing my school-bag (I’ve owned a lovely leather satchel since my first year in secondary school), make tea and walk to the bus-stop.
But when I woke up this morning I realized that perfect timing is something you really just can’t work out. Life is not an egg, that you can let boil till it is exactly the way you like it, in my case the white hard the yoke soft and creamy, but life is a little bit trickier than that. After all we can’t calculate the trips and bumps that we encounter on a day-to-day basis.
But while I was contemplating the matter of timing while sipping my tea I realized that it is exactly those minutes we can’t plan that make life exciting and interesting. Bumping into that cute guy on the bus could mean meeting your future partner, well wasted minutes, or sitting in traffic may end up with you having a life-changing idea, meeting an old friend could give you that little bit of “friendly gossip” that makes you smile or send a much needed compliment our way, and reading “just one more blog” may just make you happy, think or even give you exactly the information you were looking for.
So with all that said time is running out for me this morning and I need to get going and hope that timing is with me today. But as you can’t set the timer on timing, and you never know what the day will bring I will follow some unknown thinkers advice:
We cannot always wait for perfect time. Sometimes, we must dare to jump
perfect timing seems to just happen – I don’t think I’ve been able to plan for it. 😉
me neither, even when I try
I LOVE the jumping. Sometimes I do it with my heart. But I will always love it!
me too .. close my eyes and leap
Some days feel like I am juggling watches that are all set to different times! Then I just have to let them all fall to the ground and do the first task in front of me.
good idea ..and sometimes I am like the hare in Alice in Wonderland … I’m LAte
