July 7, 2011


There will be times in our lives when we are faced with temporary inconveniences. Temporary inconveniences are anything that may slow us down in life. They make us come to a temporary screeching halt, and we cannot resume a normal life until the inconvenience decides that it is tired of getting in our way. There is nothing we can do but wait for this inopportune moment to pass. The best thing we can learn is to have patience when a temporary inconvenience comes knocking on our door!

There are so many times in life when we are faced with a temporary inconvenience, such as the car getting pelted with hail so we have to leave it at the shop for a week for necessary repairs, the vacuum cleaner breaking down and we have to wait seven business days to receive the part through the mail, having to have oral surgery so we cannot eat normal food for several days, and Facebook blocking me from posting anymore inspirational messages on my friend's walls for several hours up to several days whichever they decide. These examples I shared are all temporary inconveniences that my family is experiencing right now. It is up to us how we handle these situations. We can get angry about these things in which we have no control over, or we can take them in stride and say to ourselves that these troublesome times will pass.

Sometimes, life will send us temporary inconveniences in order to teach us a valuable lesson. Maybe we need to learn patience, or maybe we are in too much of a rush all the time, so life tries to slow us down. Maybe, we are not going in the right direction, so a temporary inconvenience makes us take a different route. Always remember that life is trying to teach us something, and temporary inconveniences are just another way for the Universe to get our attention! Learn to have patience when dealing with these moments!
