Being in the Right Place at The Right Time

purple basil

I have this basil for some time.
According to the florist it should grow in the sun.
So I paced it in the sun. But it started to fade away.

I moved it to the shade. And again, no luck.
I kept moving it form one place to another in my garden.
Trying to understand what is best for it to bloom.

Finally I gave up.
I place it in my balcony, away from the other plants just to wait for it to die.

The basil bloomed within a day.
He got it’s green leaves back and flourished with stunning flowers.

I was so proud of myself 🙂

This story got me thinking about being in the right place at the right time.
How many times we feel disappointed with things we didn’t accomplish.

But maybe if we just take a step back and take a good look
We’ll see it is not the right place for them or the right time.

Maybe the right time will come later, and things will go easier.
Or maybe the right place isn’t here and we need to keep moving, to find that right place, instead of insisting on making it work.

Have a great week.
