Distractions

I wonder at the countless ways I can find to distract myself from the very things I say are so important to me. I remember thinking about all the time I would have once I was “retired”. Thank you very much universe for allowing me early retirement, because it looks like I will need many years of learning how to stop…..stop being distracted by so much that means so little. Patterns, habits whatever name is currently popular for all the time and ways I am wasting time. Is it a waste? Only I know for sure….I am the only one judging me, everyone else is far too busy to even notice.
I thought, I will give myself time.
What time, where did it go, how did I use it? What did I learn, contribute, do? I catch myself chuckling.
I read, I wasted my time watching Hallmark and Netflix I searched Facebook for scraps of wisdom and comedy, I even napped, rested, rejuvenated my being. How many ways can I find to distract myself? Apparently, many ways, very few that add to my health and wellbeing. Funny, though, when I was working full time, full time times 2, I still had the time to be distracted, even while contemplating the time I would have in the future to have the time I was dreaming of. Being distracted can be another full time job. If I was not distracted, how would I be focused? On what would I be focused? Great question.
If you were not distracted, what would you be focused on? Could you, perhaps find the time now to focus? I’d suggest that rather than dreaming of a time in the future, when you will have the time, to focus rather than dreaming on the future….because one never knows just how good the distractions will be in the future.
Be focused,
Be Well,
Be Love
