Timing Means Everything

The further I get in life, I realize there’s nothing like timing. It means everything.

My mom and I had a conversation the other day about my previous blog. I shared with her how I felt about pursuing makeup. She was there for me in one way or another throughout my whole experience. Her response got my wheels spinning again. She said, “What if it was just the wrong timing? Could it be possible you let frustration bury your passion?”

Hmmm. She might be on to something.

I began thinking about how I feel every time I pull out a brush and begin applying colorful shadows to my eyes, sweeping peachy hues across the apples of my cheeks, bronzing the bridge of my nose, blinking my lashes against the blackest of black. I thoroughly enjoy it and find myself submerged in taking a blank canvas and filling it with color.

I had never lost my passion for doing makeup. Instead, I allowed my frustration from few clientele and rejection from beauty counters to disillusion what I believed in. Now that I have come to this revelation, I’m willing to give this career another chance. As my mom reminded me, “It might not have been the right time to pursue it.”

Which brings me to all things in life. I’m learning this every single day. My writing career. Relationships. Where I live. Finances. Everything I experience. Things do work out in their appointed time.

This is Jewells signing out…

  • I'm very glad to hear that, and I thank God for it! When the idea came to create this blog, all I knew was to just do it. My goal is to always help one person, even if that one person is myself.

    Keep thinking. You will eventually come up with an answer.

    Thanks for reading!

  • It isn't until this post that I am beginning to understand how your blog will be a help to me and a delight to read. I love the addition of your “jewells” at the end of the post.

    About timing, I don't think I've ever considered how much timing plays into my projects. I need more time to think about this…

  • Wow! That is very true about Jesus, and I never thought about it that way. You are right about us wanting to be successful as soon as we decide to do something. I've been writing for over a decade now and though I'd hoped to be published now, I know when the time comes I will be successful. Many things take time. Marriage isn't perfected the moment both parties say “I do,” just like parenthood isn't perfect the moment the umbilical cord is cut. Makes so much sense.

    Love these “jewels” to ponder on.

  • Yes! Timing is definitely everything! Sometimes I think we want to be successful as quickly as we make the decision to DO something about our passions, and what we really should be doing is thanking God that He has revealed our talents and start honing our skills! 😉 Jesus knew about His purpose from birth, but he didn't spread the message until he was in his 30's (Luke 3:23)! 😉 xo
