I’ve been on hiatus working hard and traveling. Through my travels, I’ve met a lot of people and experienced new things. I want to share with you one of my experiences. A type of experience that confirms what I have always thought to be true “timing is everything”.
Have you ever worked so hard for something and didn’t get it? This happens to all of us at some point in life, but it never feels good when you are going through it. Let me share my story. I was on a trip to Boston, where I was scheduled to interview a celebrity model. I was doing research for BRimi on what society and social media considers beauty to be. I wanted to hear from the model industry, why the world has misconceptions of beauty. I was excited about the interview and the topic of discussion. I waited three months for this interview. When I finally arrived in Boston and checked into the hotel, I received a call from the model’s agent who explained the interview had to be canceled, due to a scheduling conflict. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I was so disappointed and I said to myself, “ I flew all this way for nothing”.
I winded up going downstairs to eat dinner, but still feeling sad and disappointed. When all of a sudden I looked across the room and low and behold it was a super model. This super model was so down to earth and natural in her own skin. I wanted to actually interview her, but knew she didn’t do interviews. She came over to my table and said “hi” and introduced herself (although, I already knew who she was). I introduced myself and she asked me where I was from. I explained to her who I was and why I was in Boston, she said “really”. When I explained my interview was canceled, she said “well if you want, you can interview me”. I couldn’t believe it. I know she comes across transparent on TV and very down to earth, but in person she is even more beautiful, because I was able to see her spirit.
She answered all my questions and said BRimi is going to do great things. She said what we are capturing is truly what beauty is about. She is around all types of women, but confirmed in her interview with me that Beauty starts from the inside out. You cannot be a beautiful person without being beautiful inside first.
The lesson I learned is that timing is everything. I would have never thought this opportunity would have ever been available to me. So next time something does not happen the way you think or hoped it would, don’t immediately look at it as a negative. Think this………something better may be around the corner.
Write me back and share a story of when “timing is everything” happened to you.
