Just as I did during the story I mentioned to you about the plane recently, I’ve been practicing welcoming … everything.
It’s not a success 100% of the time. I still get angry.
But even writing that last sentence helps to raise awareness of ‘when and why’ that happens.
The more aware you are, the more you begin realize that the word ‘interruption’ can be a slippery slope, if it’s connected with anger.
Who is interrupting you from what?
Your work? Your meditation? Your conversation? Your book or TV show?
On the other hand, if you can recognize that interruptions will happen and you can welcome them – which does not mean that you have to engage with them – then your day will feel significantly less stressful.
