The fast paced society we live in often promotes the expectation of instant gratification.⚡️
in a world where we can order a book on the internet and receive it the next day, it’s hard not to let this immediacy affect our view of relationships.
we often think we need to feel an instant connection with somebody when we meet. and when we don’t immediately click, oftentimes we don’t have the patience to either wait for a bond to develop over time or to put in the effort to cultivate one. but these types of relationships born of a quick spark are often short-lived, based on shallow compatibility. they represent temporary pleasures.
good things take time.💛
real relationships require investment. those qualities that define a strong bond–trust, communication, respect, security, and comfort–take time to develop. like plants, our relationships have to be tended to in order to flourish and blossom or bear fruit–their gifts grow richer over time. real depth only comes from abiding patience and sustained investment in other people.

we trust that what is meant for us will be ours without a doubt, but it’s important to also remember that the reverse is true as well. if something is not meant for you then no matter how much you push, it will not be yours. instead something much better, much brighter and perhaps even much bigger, exists for you. something better than only god was capable of imagining for you! trust that. it may not be the right time for exactly what you want right now, but trust that is for a very good reason. it will happen when it’s meant to (i know it’s frustrating but better things occur at the right time). sometimes other things need to happen before what we desire can come into fruition. sometimes we need to have certain experiences, learn certain things and have certain things happen before we can handle what’s next. have faith in god’s divine timing! god knows a lot more than you, he sees the wider plan and knows with absolute certainty when things need to happen for the best results to occur in your life. trust in that and let the promise of divine timing bring you to where you need to be next. often in hindsight, we can see that what we longed for wouldn’t have worked for us or something better just came along. trust that god knows what you to give/where to take you at the right time. trust him and let your better thing at the right time come to you 🦋
