Sometimes, when I’m all alone and it’s quiet, with no one around (or awake) to interrupt me, I get interrupted anyway – by allowing thoughts about other people or things to creep inside my head.
These thoughts come, that’s fine; but it’s when I start to replay or rewind them, and I stop doing what I actually should be doing that it becomes a problem.
It’s as if I am allowing that person or future thing to steal time from me, while they’re not even here!
I remind myself: No. No one can steal my time if I don’t let them.
They can wait until it is their time. Not mine.
