“You can ask the universe for all the signs you want, but ultimately, we see what we want to see when we’re ready to see it.” - How I Met Your Mother

There is a timing to life, a deep enduring rhythm that accompanies us on our journey. Despite the repeated perfection of our cadence, it is inevitable to feel off-beat. We want more out of life and when our thirst is not satiated, we feel that we have no control and begin asking for signs. We replace faith with skepticism and cling to clues that coincide with what we deeply want but do not have quite yet. Our requests for guidance force our eyes open. The irony is that, despite our impatient fixation on finding signs, our understanding of them only materializes when timing is ready to reveal it to us. There is no sign as absolute as trusting life’s rhythm to lead the way.

If you were looking for a sign, this is your sign - stop looking for one. You are not off beat. Recalibrate your outlook and rejoin your rhythm.
