When Bad Timing Is Actually Perfect Timing


Is there ever really a “good” time to get hit with a wave of depression? Of course not. But just because the timing feels inconvenient doesn’t mean it’s not perfect.


When you allow yourself to truly surrender to times of darkness, and go deep into it, you will always find buried treasure. If something is pulling you down into despair, chances are there’s a truth deep within that is asking to be heard, and something, probably many things, that want to be healed and released.


My recent dance with depression brought forth so many golden insights, I felt compelled to share some of them with you…


The big takeaways:

  • There really is no such thing as bad timing. Everything that happens in your life is perfectly timed, even if you don’t like how it feels. Your job is to surrender and allow.
  • Depression and despair can be a sign that you’re not moving in alignment with your truth. Take the opportunities of darkness for deep inquiry and reflection.
  • Having a coach in your life helps your truth to be heard. Sometimes we need an external force or voice to bring our inner voice to the surface.


In the comments below, share something that seemed like terrible timing in the moment, but ended up being exactly what you needed.


Love, Sasha
