I’ve always had a knack for timing, at least when it comes to the smaller things. If I listen to the urgings of my intuition, I usually get to a restaurant or attraction just before a huge lineup forms, or I get the last one of something before it sells out.
When it comes to the bigger things, I see a pattern in my life of knowing when to do something, or travel somewhere, of getting a feeling that if I don’t do it now, that option will no longer exist. This also applies to the idea of getting out while the getting is good.
If a big opportunity comes up, and the timing is just right, it feels like hubris or a terrible lack of appreciation and gratitude to the universe if I don’t take advantage of the gift that is being offered. If you keep turning down the good things, the universe is going to stop offering them.
