Think Locally, Grow Globally

Week 5 I have no opinion


Our lives are full of interruptions.

Traffic, a sick child, a financial surprise, a long line up, a needy neighbor, a co-worker in crisis, unfaithfulness, divorce, illness, politics, and death.

Interruptions can be appointments for compassion. This is my moment to remind myself to slow down, observe the beauty of this crazy life and savor the love all around me.

I call the upholsterer to recover the cushions from my couch my dog has eaten,  check in with my parents and rush out the door to help my stranded daughter, phone my boss, rearrange my hectic schedule to chauffeur my older children to buy a new car all in 2 days.

Do I have an opinion?  Nope.  Do I judge? Nope.

I was simply reminded of the love all around me when  my future son-law said: ” I have a hard time asking for help, and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate what you did for me, thank you.” My eyes brimming with tears, I say you are welcome.

So many opportunities to love people and for you to be loved and feel love.

Life will be a series of interruptions if you choose to look at it that way, or you can know more loves come to you when you give more time, help and love to others first.

  1. Great lesson for us all, Roz. Slow down, be the observer. Enjoy the show. Nice.

  2. Hi I like the approach you take in this blog. Great way to look at interruptions… excellent encouragement for me too.

  3. Wow, this is great! It’s so true that’s all how we look at things! If we think we’re burdened and life’s hectic, well then it is! If we feel we’re blessed and look at the good in everything, then it’s good and more good comes! The more love we feel and give, the more we get is such a profound statement!

  4. “Appointments for compassion” yes!!!
