There Is Time For Everything

Written By Viano Dee

There was a time in our lives when we were just kids– kids who just wanted to play and have fun. Then we became teenagers who just wanted to grow and become adults (because adulthood looked like fun from our perspective). Tada!!! Adulthood finally came but in a totally confusing package– this isn’t what we dreamed of!

Adulthood is hard! Sometimes fun but mostly hard!

Now, there are responsibilities. We’ve got jobs to do and bills to pay– things we didn’t have to worry about when we were younger.

In fact some of were upset when we asked for things and didn’t get them. Now, we get it. If we knew then what we know now, we probably wouldn’t have been in a hurry to grow up. We would have enjoyed those moments, loved our parents more and truly appreciated them.

Adulthood is complicated. No one really understands it. We just go ahead and do what we think we should. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. A method could work for someone at the same time, flop for someone else.

Everything may not go as planned, they could take another direction. For instance, you thought you’d get a job in a big company but you find yourself working in a grocery store. You’re sad because this isn’t what you planned. Meanwhile, some of your colleagues seem to be doing way better and then you think something is wrong with you. You are so overwhelmed by how great others are doing that you do not even realize that you are better than some others. What do you do? You sulk and sink into depression. All you want to do is fit in.

And that is where the problem lies. You can’t fit in because your story is unique. Your journey leads to a different path and as long as you’re constantly using other peoples’ storylines to tell your story, you are going to end up with a story that isn’t yours. There is a reason a nose drop can’t serve as an eye drop. Though they both have two openings, they are different and so are their functions.

When you begin to understand your purpose and accept your uniqueness, that’s when you truly start living. It doesn’t matter what the current situation is, what matters is how patient you are willing to be to get through the process.

It may not seem pleasant and you may feel left out but that’s okay, it’s the process. It’s the same way clay is different from wood which is different from steel. Clay is molded and burnt in order to become an earthenware. Wood is sawed and nailed to fit whatever purpose it is designed for and steel must go through the hottest fire and be hammered into shape.

Even at that, the process is different for each purpose. The number of nails that would go into a door is different from the number of nails that will go into a shelf or a cupboard, yet both are made of wood. Can you imagine if the door has more nails than it should because it’s trying to look like a shelf? Do you get where I am going with this?

Dear adult, the worst thing you can do to yourself is to compare yourself to someone else. It’s okay if you’re aging and you’re not yet married — there are people who have rushed into marriage and are miserable simply because they kept using other peoples’ timelines.

You may be currently unemployed, that’s fine. The process may just be leading you to discover who you truly are. You may just end up being your own boss.

Are you married without kids? Be patient. There are those whose kids have brought them much pain and have even sent them to an early grave.

Listen, there is time for everything. Everything has a season. Everyone has a time frame. Each one is walking a different journey with a different purpose. No one is the same. Embrace your uniqueness. Trust God and trust the process. You’ll be alright eventually.

Have a lovely week ahead!

This is something I am constantly reminding myself of. We have gone through so much. And there are things that we have had to wait on. There are things I wished we had. Or ways I wish it were. But ultimately I had to wait on God to get there. Thanks for this reminder! I’m currently needing it for something in my life.


Very beautifully said that every person is unique and travels a different journey. It is true there is time for everything in life. Thanks for sharing.


Life is so complex and unpredictable, but at the same time, we search for certainty and understanding. It’s the human condition to have something to believe in, or to believe that everything will work out in our favor!

Yeah, every one is unique and has different journey and Yes there is time for everything but I believe that priorities matter…

I agree with you. We were born into this world with a mission, a Divine Plan has been set out of us and we must trust God to guide us through the journey. Times may seem so uncertain right now, but as with everything else, this pandemic will pass. My friend posted on FB about the pandemic and she said, “We are not in the same boat, but we are all in the same storm.” Which is so true. We all react differently to a common situation, all to reach the same goal.


Great post! The comparison trap doesn’t help anyone, and I definitely believe in seasons!


Thanks for sharing hey. The grass always look greener on the other side. I’ve realized too many times that things I always try to rush into are not really worth rushing into. Enjoying and appreciating where you are is the best way to go


Oh my, this is the reality of life. As children and teenagers, we needed to spend more time reading books and finding out what we really enjoy doing in life.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
