When is it the right time?

March 25, 2010 at 19:04 (Uncategorized)

Time is such a personal matter; everyone has their own way to time manage. We all see time as a different element depending on where you want to go in life.  Some of us feel we are short on time with everything we want to do or experience and others feel that they are in the right time frame for themselves.

Getting lost in a worry of if you have enough time can sometimes get ahead of us and cause stress.  Questions like ‘when will I get to travel’, or ‘when will I finish studying’, ‘when will I get my first job’, ‘when will I get married’, ‘when will I have kids’? These are all ‘when’ questions. ‘When’ questions are fine to ask, it’s a problem when you let this get out of control.  It becomes a ball of stress when you put a time limit on your life and try rush ahead to get to something else.

What we should actually be focusing on is setting goals and going with the flow of our life.  Planning is great, setting achievements and personal aims is even better, it’s when we start to stress about when we will get things done, or how we will get them done that throws us completely off.  It raises a panic alarm within our body and mind which stunts our experiences and time to have fun.  We must not forget to have fun on our journey and take everything in our stride.  Our life plan is already in front of us, all we need to do is stay on the right road and look straight ahead.

    This question of “when” is something thall all B-Tech students should rid from their vocabulary! Totally agree with you! We cannot waste time by worrying about time.

    There is so much pressure on everyone nowadays. Marriage, children, career, friend. Everyone is different and things happen to each person at different parts of their lives. Its just about having faith that they will eventually happen and that you won’t miss out on anything… there’s a right time for everything.

    Really awesome observation, of which I am a culprit. I find myself so irritated sometimes though because I never use to think like that and can’t tell you at what stage I started…but it sucks. I must agree with Dalene, it’s a result of external pressures; too many expectations and demands.

    I love your message and have been feeling very much the same way lately. It made for a wonderful read.
