Timing is everything.

Timing is everything.

Timing can be your best friend, or a total b*tch. Right? It can bring you opportunities, or it can dangle them in front of your eyes and then snatch them right back again. It can bring you the right people at the right time. But, it can also bring you the wrong people at wrong time, or, even worse, the right people at the wrong time. And it will most definitely give you all of the 'what if's' and 'should have's' that will drive you insane.

If you've been a reader of my blog for a while, you'll know that I'm a huge believer in fate. I firmly believe that every single little thing in our lives happens for a reason, and and I know that things are the way they're meant to be, right now. But, that doesn't stop me wanting to try and change things. Things that are quite often out of my control.  

Hindsight is a wonderful thing too, isn't it? Looking back there are so many things that I would do differently, but not in the sense that I regret them, but that I'd take more risks and throw myself out there a little more, and try and stop my shyness from meaning I miss out on exciting stuff. 

But, I sometimes also wish some things had happened at different times. I wish I'd have reached out to people earlier, I wish I'd have made that decision sooner, I wish I'd have moved on quicker, I wish I'd have met that person later (or, in some cases, not at all). 


Ultimately, things happened the way they did, and they're going to continue to happen in a sequence and order that we can't control. Sometimes being able to trust that everything will work out the way it should is the best approach to have. If something has happened at the wrong time, it wasn't meant to happen at the right time.

Timing hasn't always been on my side lately, but that doesn't mean something better isn't about to happen at exactly the right time, right?


Copper Alarm Clock - c/o Cox and Cox. | This alarm clock from Cox and Cox has been the perfect addition to my room and my new aim of achieving a simple and minimalist vibe. The copper colour is beautiful, it has a gorgeous classic design and it sits on my bedside table because it doesn't actually make a ticking noise, meaning it doesn't drive any of my friends insane when they come to visit. Oh, and it actually wakes me up! I've actually really enjoyed having an 'old style' alarm again, I don't know about you, but I'm starting to get a little tired of some of the alarm sounds on my phone!

  1. I love this post ❤️❤️

  2. I am also a massive believer in fate and that everything happens the way it is supposed to happen. Sometimes I do worry about not being in the right place at the right time and missing out on things but ya gotta remember, whatever will be will be! x

  3. I used to stress about all the little things that I couldn't control in my life, until I realised that everything will turn out for the best eventually. From being a very unpatient person I have become patient and much happier :)


  4. I can't agree more with you!I believe in fate too and it's weird for me personally that some people don't!I believe that things happens when it's the right time kind of to happen!As you said though i would like to do some things differently in the past!Not that i regret them but still...they can be done in a better way ^_^

    Have a nice day,

  5. I'm a huge believer in fate but still try my hardest to control things around me, my new years resolution is to let go a bit more! x

  6. I love this! I'm trying my best to believe in a fate a little more lately - and trying to trust in the fact that everything happens for a reason, as I'm a huge believer in this too. It is really difficult though! Gorgeous pics too! xx

  7. I loved reading this post, and I definitely agree with the idea of timing being everything; everything happens for a reason and we're exactly where we should be at exactly the right time! Lovely post!

  8. Timing really is everything, and hindsight is a WONDERFUL thing for sure - as I've learnt over the years!

  9. Its weird because i personally do not believe in fate but that we have to work for everything we want. It is all personal preference though x

  10. I feel exactly the same way - I have always been a firm believer in good timing who would bring me the right opportunities. However lately things have not been the best and I'm starting to wonder: what if life was a balance between a "go and get it" attitude & fate? x
