That girl in the picture Standing there Smilling through the pain Just living life
That girl in the picture She never could’ve Known or imagined What was coming
That girl in the picure Looking at the world Blind to the future She had no idea
That girl in the picture She couldn’t even Begin to prepare For this!
How could she know? How could she prepare? How could she see?
She didn’t have a map – Or a to-do list. She just needed time.
Time is the key Everything unfolds so quickly
Time to remember & forget And, process it all
That girl in the picture Wasn’t ready for this
So, give her time!
Thanks for reading! I hope this poem inspired you to slow down & give yourself time to take a moment to enjoy life!
For the original picture: CLICK HERE! P.S. The featured picture on this post was the inspiration for this poem because when looking at it, I was reminded of who I was in that moment, & I realized how different I used to be. It reminded me to be kind to myself because we all need time to process through life.
Have you ever asked yourself the question: “What am I still doing here?”.
. . .
Well, I have. And, I know it’s never a good question to ask yourself because it very rarely has a good answer. (the answer to that question usually discourages you.)
You see… Usually, when you ask yourself that question it signifies that you are tired of where you are currently in life, and you are aching for change; for something more.
That question makes you fell stuck, but you don’t know what to do.
All you know is you want to change something (you don’t want to be “here” asking yourself that question), but you don’t know what’s coming next.
Well, let me just tell you that you are “here” for a purpose, and your next step is coming, just be patient because there is a time for everything, and everything happens at a certain time for a specific reason.
Your life is moving, but when you don’t feel it, remember that with time you will move forward to something great. And, when you do, you won’t realize what hit you.
It feels slow now, but once it’s over you won’t remember all this waiting.
Life is all about timing and patience!
The more patience you have, the better things will become in time.
So, focus on where you are right now because your next step is coming (sooner than you think).
Thanks for reading! I hope this post encouraged you, and gave you hope for your future!
P.S. This post was inspired by: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
(look it up; on google or in the bible),
it’s a great encouraging verse about timing and patience!
