The word by itself already tells you that your flow won’t be so straightforward or steady. You have waited long for an opportunity to show the world what you are capable of and here you are at top speed to catch up with time and you get interrupted. Who does that to a waiting mother, single lady or broke man? That’s just not fair!

Interruptions are good. Of course, it doesn’t always look that way, but they are like road bumps or warning signals that cause us to slow down and rethink. Check out the cause or reason for that interruption, you will find a ‘flaw’ that would have brought the whole system crashing after you had painstakingly put the blueprint together.

One morning we were on our way to work and my friend noticed that the temperature went up a bit and back down and up again. We turned off the AC and drove on. But at some point, we had to park the car for it to come down and forget about clocking in on time. After a while, we opened to the radiator to discover there was no drop of water in it. Imagine, if we drove on just so we could clock in, we would have had a blown gasket, probably a knocked engine (don’t know much about cars). But it definitely wouldn’t have been nice. That would mean spending money on something that was avoidable. All it took was enough water and the radiator’s thirst was assuaged.

It may be a mindset attitude. Check it out and enjoy your interruptions; they will lead you to your opportunities – the right way at the right time.
