How’s your timing?
We’re quite fond of what I call “salad in a bag” around our home. It’s a lot more convenient than buying all of these vegetables and slicing and dicing them. You just open the bag, reach in and grab a handful, put it on your plate, pour your favorite dressing on it, and voila! You’re eating salad.
I’ve noticed that once that bag is open though, it doesn’t matter how tightly I seal it, or if I put it in another bag, that salad is going to spoil pretty quickly. You’ve got to eat that salad in a bag for several days in a row if you want to enjoy it. Leave it for a week or so and it’s no good. I’ve decided that the difference between salad and garbage is timing.
And that’s true about a lot of things in life. You have an opportunity and that door opens at just the right time. But it’s up to you to walk through it in a timely fashion or the door closes. The opportunity is lost. It spoils into garbage.
Today, in the fullness of time, walk through the doors that open for you. You’ll know the time is right as you listen to life and make a positive life.
