Not too long ago I posted something that said Eventually you’ll end up where you need to be, with whom you’re meant to be with and doing what you should be doing.
One of my friends weighed in with “But how long does it take!?” And my response was simple:
“It takes as long as it takes.”
Thing is, we live in a world that seeks instant gratification. But, the other thing is, life doesn’t work that way.
I do believe that our journeys are individual, specific to us and the lessons we’re here to learn in this life.
The journey we take can be long or short, it can be straight or curvy, easy or full of obstacles. And that journey will take as long as it takes.
There’s no sense comparing ourselves to others because their journey is specific to them and what they have to learn. Maybe it looks like they’ve had it easy. But maybe we don’t know anything about how it’s been for them.
My best advice to those who are impatient to get through the journey is to remind them that it will end soon enough. That every curve and obstacle and detour is meant to be a lesson. That if they keep their eyes on the road and pay attention to what comes up, they’re doing what they are supposed to be doing.
And they’ll end up in just the right place for them.
Of that I’m certain.
