It seems I get interrupted more as I become older.  It just gets irritating.  Doesn’t it?


Rather than becoming irritated with the interruptions – maybe there is a better way to react.  You know “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff”.


First, I have to change my perception of interruption.  Maybe it is not a negative but a positive occurrence.  If I am on an important (in my eyes) task and the interruptions happens during that time maybe it is the universe telling me that I need a break or I need to go a different direction or I need to help out somewhere or …

Once I have changed my perception, then my thoughts begin to adjust themselves.  They become more and more positive about the benefits that interruptions can have on my life.  Things like enjoying talking to the person on the phone instead of negatively reacting to the phone ringing.

This then affects my belief system:  interruptions are not necessarily bad things;  interruptions can be beneficial.

And finally, my reality is now changed.  Rather than getting irritated when interruptions occur, I can see them as positive opportunities.




About Gary

I am retired, but not tired. I still want to be valuable to others. I know that others are valuable to me. After looking back on six decades, I have asked myself this question: “What do I believe?” My mind filled up. My heart started beating faster. My spirit soared. I post blogs to share what my mind is working on, what my heart believes would help others and, what my spirit is communicating to me. What do I believe, you ask? Decisions dictate your path In love, not hate In tolerance, not prejudice In health, not sickness In wealth, not poverty In kindness, rudeness In happiness, not sadness In encouragement, not discouragement In faith, not doubt In courage, not fear I have been and will be challenged in each one of these beliefs, but the biggest belief is to stay positive and not turn negative. This belief helps me maintain all of the others.
