Happiness can be tricky and elusive. The issue with happiness is our attempt to obtain it. We try to find happiness in things, people, places, experiences, etc. Trying to find happiness in other “things” gives away our power. Once we attach happiness to something external there are too many ways that it can be taken away. Once we see that happiness is all about our perspective, our internal thoughts, we can start to see it more clearly. It is very difficult to ignore the power of negativity in our lives but understand that happiness can be felt in small amounts throughout the day. It can help overcome the negativity. When acknowledged, happiness can carry us through even the darkest times. Take the time to see these moments that push us forward.
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.
