So many times we fail to let interruptions motivate us to notice what we frequently ignore.
Now think about people. In our hurry and our hustle, we fail to see them when they’re beside us. We should stop our addiction to ignoring people. We must engage with the world around us. Let us enjoy life. Let us enjoy people. Today.
Embrace the interruptions.
Embrace the moment.

I am a prime culprit of ignoring….not on purpose, but because I am an intensely focused person. I am always on a mission, walking fast, head down, going places (physically and metaphorically). Recently what has come to my attention is the way this looks to others. I want to be seen as a friendly person who has time for anybody, so in order to achieve this, I must disengage from my addition to ignore! Like this blog suggests, its time to slow down and let interruptions motivate us.
I often find myself ignoring people as well. I always seem to be in a hurry to get to class, that I usually just walk right past someone. I’m hoping in the future that I will be able to stop, slow down, and look around so I can enjoy life and the people all around me.
Such a timely post! I have been attempting to be more aware of this lately and am glad to be reassured again how important this is. The truth is, when I have taken the time to stop and have that conversation with that person I usually pass by, the result has been such an encouragement. Many times, that random conversation could be the highlight of my day.
This is an awesome reminder, especially as theres not to much school left for me. I need to focus on the people around me and look to invest in relationships one last time while here at EC. God is the author of joy, so why not use that gift to impact people right now!! 🙂
As the semester draws to an end, I am looking forward to the summer months. I am excited to rest, recharge, and relax- to enjoy my moments this summer and to come back in the fall ready to go for my senior year 🙂
This is so important. I seem to be reminded of this when things, years, and situations are coming to a close; I need to work on remembering this in the midst of moments rather than when it’s too late.
