I noticed that Cheri, one of the women in my Passion Test master mind group, sometimes says “in perfect time.” This is when she is talking about things that are on the to-do list or that may not have been completed as she would have liked. As I really heard the words one day, I contemplated whether I believed that to be true or not.
I thought about:
- the times that I have really felt I was in a bind & things didn't work out when I thought they should.
- the times that I would have really liked to have had just the right contact to pull a project together & ended up passing altogether.
- the time when I was wondering if I would ever meet Mr. Right when Mr. Wrong kept showing up on my Caller ID.
I also thought about the times that I have forced situations. They should have happened on my timetable so I decided to “settle” for what was at hand and run with it. Although these situations may have turned out ok (or not) it was never to the degree I would have liked. It occurred to me as I examined these different situations that they all did indeed happen in their perfect time. What if I met that perfect business partner or client & I could only give a thrown together, partial presentation? Did you just hear that door close? And thank goodness I waited for Mr. Cleveland to show up. He may not be perfect but he is perfect for me! The truth is that in everything we simply are not properly prepared until we are. And then in perfect time, everything falls into place if we allow it. I'm grateful to be learning this and to appreciate the here and now!
