The Beauty of Timing

I wrapped a movie last week, I started a new movie this week, I’ve been working with a non-profit for the past few Saturdays and I am taking classes in my limited down time.

Tonight, with tired eyes and a hungry stomach, I decided to grab a bite before I headed off to bed. I ended up running into a friend who I only see sporadically.

As I questioned, to myself, why I desired to go out to eat in the first place, the bigger reason was revealed to me while I caught up with him. It’s been awhile since we were able to really sit down and talk. It was good to catch up.

As we spoke I heard things that concerned me. He spoke about following a holistic path for his own healing, which has been my silent journey that I have only begun to talk about with friends.

While I was thinking about me, I realized as I caught up with my friend, that my late night hunger was a means for me to see my friend to help him with his own growth and healing.

Sometimes our late night hunger, wrong turns or strong urges are present not for us, but for those we care about. Sometimes we are guided to be in certain places to help others find or remember their way, or to be there to be a voice to a friend who is searching.

Trust in the beauty of timing.
