You're Not Late! You're Not Early

Marie-Claire Kuja
Posted March 8, 2017 from United States

Do you think you are going No Where in Life?

STOP!

Take a deep breathe

THINK!

New York is threehours ahead of California, but that does not make California slow

Cameroon is six hours ahead of New York but it does not make New York slow.

Someone graduated from college at 22 but waited five years before securing a job.

Someone became a CEO at 25 but died at 50.

Someone became a CEO at 50 but lived to 90 years.

Someone is still single,

While another is married with children

Absolutely, everyone in this world works based on their own time zone.

People around you might seem to be ahead of you.

That’s total fine. Some are behind you.

Everyone is running their own race in their own time zone.

Don’t envy or mock them.

They are in their own time zone and you are in yours.

Life is about waiting for the right moment to react.

So RELAX.

You’re not late

You’re not early

You’re very much on time, and in your time zone.

Everyone have a different exams paper meaning different questions.

Everyone have a different assignment meaning different purpose in life.

So focus on your own exampaper, your assignment and purpose.

Don’t copy and paste or steal answer else you will fail big time.

Your dreams and visions are all valid.Just take your time and do the best you can.

Be like the hummingbird.Even when mighty lions and tigers underestimated him,hecontinued to do what he could,where hewas ,just as he was, with the little he had.

You're ok just the way you are.The little work you are doing today might seem insignificant but Ibet someday you will see the big picture.

You're Not late ! You're Not early.

Marie-Claire, 

I love the idea that everyone lives and operates in their own time zone. It's a refreshing reminder that we are all on our unique paths, and we need to not be caught up in comparisons. Thank you for sharing!

Dear Marie-Claire,

What a great reminder! I needed to read this today. In our world today, it seems as we're just rushing to the next 'big' thing. You're so right when you wrote that "everyone in this world works based on their own time zone." I love how you put Cameroon because I'm Cameroonian myself. That being said, I know about time zones because this is the story of my life. Yet, I manage to connect with the people I love the most, regardless of their location. May we all be inspired from each other because, at the end of the day, we've our own destination to reach. As a Christian, I also know that my heavenly Father holds my future. So I make sure to complete each assignment with excellence. I must re-read your text. So encouraging!

I'm already 23, and I'm still in college. By the time I graduated, I will be 26. Other people at my age, already graduated and married and have a decent career, and abundant job experience. I constantly feel so left behind. Sometimes, I even think about giving up college, the pressure from the surrounding environment make me doubt my decision at the first place. At this age, I'm supposed to have a job already and support my family financially, instead I'm still on way to get a bachelor degree. Perseverance is hard but what is harder is I don't know if the decision is right, and the direction is right anymore.

You have nothing to worry about it ! In fact, don't ever worry again. Your decision is still right all along and deep down you know what's best for yourself. Always believe in yourself ! Have faith for a better tomorrow ! Your time will come eventually, no matter how long it is, you have to wait for the right time, for the right opportunity to come. What matters most is how well you walk through the fire. That's all I have to say. I wish you the best of luck on your journey !

hello Marie-Claire! I found these words circulating on Instagram (@heymamaco, @denisevasi, @rezelkealoha) but wasn't able to find the original source so I googled it and I'M SO GLAD I DID. Your story is so inspiring and empowering. I would love to learn more and connect. I did some (more) google searching and couldn't find too much more about your company Kuja Eco Pads but would really love to hear more about what you're doing in Cameron! Do you have a good email address to connect? You can find me on Instagram @shannanmonson or shannanmonson.com. So inspired by you and would love to share and help any way I can! Thank you for these beautiful words.

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Today there was an celeb post this quote on her Instagram and it seems like most people think that this was her saying while I remember reading this somewhere in the past, but I cannot recall where did I see it. So, I tried searching a little bit but surprisingly I cannot find the credit for this quote anywhere lol. I wonder if you are the author of this inspiring quote? I'm just being curious lol. Thanks, have a nice day ^^
