Traveling Sick: Timing is everything

The photo below was taken on my first international flight since I was bedridden for 4 years. We were on our way to Scotland! I was so terrified but at the same time knew, no matter how things turned out, this was my time.

Doing the right thing is not enough. We have to learn to do the the right thing at the right time.

I came across this talk by Dallin H. Oaks titled “Timing” and I felt this line perfectly described one of the challenges we face every day with Chronic Illness.

“In all the important decisions in our lives, what is most important is to do the right thing. Second, and only slightly behind the first, is to do the right thing at the right time. People who do the right thing at the wrong time can be frustrated and ineffective. They can even be confused about whether they made the right choice when what was wrong was not their choice but their timing.” – Dallin H. Oaks

How true is that? I loved this part “what is most important is to do the right thing. Second, and only slightly behind the first, is to do the right thing at the right time.”

If it isn’t your time yet please don’t get discouraged. Don’t compare. Don’t judge yourself or others. Just know, your time is coming.
