I remember a time when I lived in Ohio that I said, “If I could just find a way to live in Florida, I wouldn’t complain about anything.” A very naive statement for sure. Since moving to Florida in 2011 there have been many complaints. It seems that when one goal is reached, another must be made. There is absolutely nothing wrong with setting new goals and striving for success. Where most of us fall short is not showing gratitude for what we have. We neglect to give ourselves a minute to savor our success. This lack of gratitude holds us back. Always striving for more can only add to our anxiety. We will always be searching for the next thing to make us happy or feel accomplished. Let’s start understanding that we have accomplished much in our lives and, yes, there is still more to be done. Look at everything that you have accomplished so far and be proud. We all deserve that much.
Distraction is seen as a negative. Even the definition states that distraction is “a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else.” While that can be seen as mostly negative, we here at The Distraction Blog believe that distraction can be an extremely helpful, and dare we say, important part of life. We embrace the things that help us enjoy and celebrate life. We celebrate things like music, movies, literature, food, and travel for the role that they play. The mission of this blog is to embrace distraction and come together as a group of distracted individuals attempting to understand each other a little bit better.
