Credentials of Indispensability?

"When you are exasperated by interruptions, try to remember that their very frequency may indicate the value of your life...The interruptions which we chafe at are the credentials of our indispensability. 

The greatest condemnation that anybody could incur... is to be so independent, so unhelpful, that nobody ever interrupts us, and we are left comfortably alone." -Anonymous

A young friend of mine posted this on Facebook and I loved it. I am feeling very grateful for how fulfilling the "interruptions" make my life. "The credentials of our indispensability"...... that sounds like super hero stuff!


  1. Thank you for posting that. I now look at the interruptions differently. If that is a sign of our indispensability than I too have a wonderful and meaning life. :)

  2. Great stuff! I'm now quite thankful for my interruptions ... and super-hero status (or at least sounding like a super-hero of some sort)!
