You’re not behind in life.

Many many years ago, I used to listen to Pink Floyd’s “…you missed the starting gun” lyrics, and wondered if there was a starting gun with which I should have started my race in life. A lot of my friends were married and having kids, or had successful Careers and loving relationships. Although I was very happy for them, it seemed like I was the only one missing out.

Now after all those years of trial and error, tears, prayer, meditation, workshops and webinars (as well as reading anything I could get my hands on), I finally know better. I realize now that all is as it should be. Every minute of our lives, and the experiences we have, help us grow spiritually and become less selfish, more compassionate, and kind.

For most of us, when we are young, we think we know it all and our egos tend to run our lives. We do not listen to our hearts and our higher selves (our soul) to guide us. Now I know enough, as they say, to know, I know nothing! Be patient and love yourself as well as others. We are all doing the best we can, from our level of maturity at the moment and the frequency that we are vibrating. Firoozeh Bowden
