Do you ever feel like your life is simply too noisy! I don’t mean in audible volume, I mean in details. Responsibilities, obligations, priorities, wants and needs. It seems like, at least the last couple weeks, there is a lot going on in my life. Certainly not all bad. A lot GOOD, in fact. But all of it, the good, the bad, and the ugly, seems to be jumping up and down in my head screaming “Pick me! Pick me!” Sometimes I just want to tell all of them to just “Shut up so I can think!” Adoption. Homeschool. Foster care. My business. Bob’s health. My health! Everything is so darned important I can’t neglect any of them. So what do I end up neglecting? My needs (sometimes) and my wants (often!).
Interruptions are the biggest cause of the noise. Daily interruptions. My kid (most), my business (regularly), my clients, and even sometimes Bob interrupts me. I don’t think I can get a 10 minute block of time where SOMEONE doesn’t interrupt me.
