A girlfriend sent me a quote which might have ended up in your Inbox/phones too. It made a lot of sense to me, thus I decided to put it here as a reminder.
It's about being in our own unique Time Zone.
"New York is 3 hours ahead of California, but it does not mean that California is slow, or that New York is fast. Both are working based on their own Time Zone.
Someone is still single. [That's me. Alhamdulillah!] Someone got married and 'waited' 10 years before having a child. There is another who had a baby within a year of marriage.
Someone graduated at the age of 22 [That's me! Alhamdulillah!]...someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job; and there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment immediately! [Secured a job immediately, that's yours truly, Alhamdulillah!]
Someone became a CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years.
Everyone works based on their Time Zone. People can have things worked out only according to their pace. Work in your "time zone".
Your colleagues, friends, younger ones might 'seem' to go ahead of you. Maybe some might 'seem' to be behind you. Everyone is in this world running their own lane in their own time. God has a different plan for everybody. Time is the difference. Obama retires at 55, Trump resumes at 70. Don't envy them or mock them, it's their Time Zone. You are in yours! Hold on, be strong and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You're not late, you're not early, you're very much on time. Stay blessed! You are in your Time Zone."
Yes! To the bystanders/roadside critics/skeptics who ever jeered at me and mocked Allah's Divine Plan for me, I have got this poster for you. LOL. If you have got teenagers in your family who are sensitive regarding peer pressures, share my poster with them. LOL.
Malaysia is GMT +08:00 but we have to be in "my GMT" [MYGMT] all the time, no matter where we are, that's what the wise sayings quoted above is all about.
OK folks, good night, from one balmy island in the sun : )
