Life sets its own pace.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

We all have our own agendas. We have mental (if not written) plans for what we want to happen and timeframes in which we want it to occur. The future is mapped our in our heads and we try to live our lives according to that map.

Somehow, things often don’t conform to our precise vision. There are detours and derailments, delays and deferments. It can be frustrating, particularly when our plans for the moment are hijacked, leaving the present totally unlike what we’d intended.

Yet, often the delays allow current situations to come together in unexpected ways that further our long term goals. Serendipity guides us to our desires along unplanned routes and on its own timeline.

Today’s message advises me not to get hung up when my plans for the day/week/month are shattered. If I step back from my dismay, I will see that delays and detours may serve my aims in unforeseen and positive ways. What appears to be a setback for one goal may be a leap forward for another. I trust in creation to deliver events and opportunities in the most advantageous ways and in perfect divine timing.

How about you? What’s your take on delays?
