Living with the drip

In Uncategorized on August 10, 2016 by mstevensrev

faucetThe drip of a faucet can be extremely distracting and often events outside of work or small things in work distract us from our goals, the way a faucet can be distracting.

Throughout my life I have tried to fix the faucet. Sometimes it works and that is great, other times it doesn’t and I need to get a professional in to fix it.

Life’s distractions cannot always be fixed even if you call in a professional, there are times that you have to wait out the drip. In these moments I’m working on recognizing how annoying the drip is and in the best of times it makes it less distracting. At other times it just leaves me grumpy and annoyed. One other practice is that of gratitude, when I recognize all that I have to be grateful for I’m less emotionally influenced by the drip. It’s like blasting Hamilton to drown out the drip of the faucet.
