Inconveniences come into our every day lives at the worst possible times, which make sense; if they arrived when we were ready for them, they wouldn’t be called inconveniences.
They knock us off course a little bit because they interrupt a schedule, a timeframe:
having to stop for gas when you’re running late for work
the shoelace that breaks right before a meeting
waiting all day for the repair guy to come fix your refrigerator
finding out at 9pm that your child signed you up to bring cookies to school the next day for the ENTIRE CLASS
And because these things never happen at a good time, it’s easy to lose perspective and categorize them as “problems.” We all do it. But they’re not…they are just inconveniences and they will fly out of our lives as quickly as they flew in.
So when faced with that unexpected interruption to your day, remember it’s not a problem-it’s just a temporary inconvenience.
(And if you happen to be up at midnight making cookies for your child’s class, make sure you save yourself a couple. After all, inconveniences can still have their perks.)
