Timing: Usually Never Right.

Choices: Sometimes right, sometimes wrong

Fate's clock:  The only clock in the world with the correct time.

Argue that.

"When the timing is right" is acted upon instinct, and is not realized until after the fact. More often said is, "The timing was right", which actually means the instincts were right (past tense).

Interesting conjecture Mia - not sure I completely agree - will think on that...

Beth - sorry lady... your #1 and #3 contradict each other (not to mention that #3 presupposes fate as a realistic, all-encompassing ideal). If, as you say, "The only clock in the world with the correct time..." is Fate's, then there would be no such thing as "bad" timing... it would all be correct.

actually hon, although the timing may never be right, fate is always on time.  So it may not be the right time for "you" but always the right time for "fate".  For example:  say a person just had their heart broken   and they are feeling MISERABLE.  That person is soooo far from wanting another relationship~it's just not the right TIME~  

knockknockknock

HELLO?  

Hi.  It's True Love, I am sorry I am coming at such an INCONVENIENT TIME, but fate sent me...........

do you understand what I am saying now?  And c'mon Christopher, I may be blonde, but I hardly ever contradict myself in the same paragraph without trying to make some sense.  lol.

That heartbroken person may feel as though they don't even want to think of getting out there again...when...in the grocery store, another smiles at her/him, and their instincts tell her/him to say something. He/she does (the choice)...heartbreak forgotten...timing was right!
Fate was there...who cares...he/she is happy again.

To continue the chosen subject of the heartbroken; All parameters remain the same excepting the person in the food store ignores the instinct to speak and lets insecurity still his/her tongue.. the only thing that changed was the choice--the timing was still right,, the person was still right,, but the opportunity was missed due to a choice made,, time-place-action= given result. Fate has no hand in it due to the fact that fate has no hands, only a reputation.

I usually make good choices just the timings always bad

Sometimes you have to let go and move on,
But never let go of the memories.

Hindsight may be 20/20, but the Present's always dim. And Love is no help at all, being Blind.

for the record: hindsight is almost NEVER 20/20 - in fact, it is usually clouded by misremeberings painted with the colors of emotion and perception. this is why i disagree with this statement - actually digging in and determining the reality of the past may be an impossibilty.
