Distractions

Updated: Jun 1, 2019

Do you ever feel like you can't get anything done? ever feel like you are taking one step forward and then 20 steps backwards? ever feel like you are always the last one that anyone cares about or consider?




DISTRACTIONS AND ROADBLOCKS SOME THINGS THAT ARE A DISTRACTION OR ROADBLOCK:

ILLNESS OF YOURSELF OR A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND DEATH, DIVORCE, RELATIONSHIP, JOB SOCIAL MEDIA, SOCIAL LIFE SPOUSE FOOD, TV/RADIO, WORRYING, STRESS, BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN IN LIFE AND THAT IS UNAVOIDABLE THERE IS NO WAY AROUND IT, BUT HOW YOU RESPOND AND REACT IS CRUCIAL. YOU DECIDE HOW IT WILL AFFECT YOUR WELL BEING SOME DISTRACTIONS AND ROADBLOCKS ARE A SET UP TO GIVE YOU A BETTER PERSPECTIVE AND IT’S UP TO YOU HOW YOU ARE GOING TO HANDLE IT. WHAT LESSON DID YOU LEARN FROM THE ROADBLOCK/DISTRACTION OR BOTH COULD IT HAVE BEEN PREVENTED? WHAT COULD YOU HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY? ARE YOU ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT EVERYBODY ELSE INSTEAD OF BEING FOCUSED ON YOURSELF AND YOUR PRIORITIES? EVERY TIME THERE IS A NEED FOR ANYBODY ARE YOU JOHNNY ON THE SPOT. DO YOU HAVE TO COMMENT ON EVERY FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, AND TWITTER SNAP CHAT POST? DO YOU TO GO TO EVERY PARTY AND SOCIAL EVENT? DO YOU HAVE TO RESPOND TO EVERY TEXT MESSAGE IN LESS THAN 5 SECONDS? DO YOU TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL EVERY 30 MINUTES. DO YOU HAVE TO GO OUT TO EAT EVERY TIME YOU ARE INVITED. AGAIN EVERYTHING FOR EVERYBODY ELSE INSTEAD OF TAKING CARE OF YOU.

GOOD DISTRACTION AND ROADBLOCKS RUNNING LATE BECAUSE YOUR DAUGHTER OR SON FORGOT THERE BOOK REPORT FOR SCHOOL AND YOU HAD TO TURN AROUND AND GO BACK HOME AND AS YOU WERE DRIVING YOU NOTICED A BAD CAR ACCIDENT WITH FATALITIES OK THAT COULD HAVE BEEN YOU BUT GOD SAVED YOU. OR MAYBE YOU WANTED TO GO TO A CONCERT AND YOUR SPOUSE OR FAMILY MEMBER GOT REALLY SICK AND YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO GO AND LATER ON THAT NIGHT YOU SEE THERE WAS A SHOOTING AT THE CONCERT. YOU MISSED A DEADLINE AT WORK BECAUSE YOU WERE SICK AND AT HOME IN THE BED WELL THEY DECIDED TO GIVE AN ADDITIONAL 30 DAYS BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO MAKE SOME CHANGES. YOU WERE TRYING TO GET IN NURSING SCHOOL AND YOU WERE DENIED AND YOU WERE DEVASTATED BUT SUDDENLY YOUR GRANDMOTHER WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A FATAL DISEASE AND NEEDED TOTAL CARE AND UNFORTUNATELY YOU ARE THE ONLY FAMILY MEMBER THAT CAN COMMIT TO TAKING CARE OF HER IF YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN ACCEPTED TO NURSING SCHOOL THEN NO ONE WOULD BE ABLE TO CARE FOR HER A BLESSING IN DISGUISE. I LIKE TO CALL THAT. BAD DISTRACTIONS WORRYING WILL MAKE YOU DISTRACTED BUT WHY WORRY IF YOU HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE SITUATION NOR DO YOU HAVE THE POWER TO FIX IT. WATCHING REALITY TV OR ANY TV WHEN YOU SHOULD BE STUDYING OR FINISHING YOUR PROJECT BIG DISTRACTION AND THAT’S YOUR FAULT TURN OFF THE TV AND FOCUS. STRESS IS A DISTRACTION IF YOU ARE STRESSED THAT CAUSES HEADACHES WEIGHT LOSS OR GAIN SLEEPINESS NIGHTS ATTITUDE PROBLEMS NEGATIVE THOUGHTS SELF DOUBT AND IF YOU HAVE ALL OF THAT YOU WILL NOT GET ANYTHING COMPLETED AND YOU WILL NOT BE PRODUCTIVE. ALWAYS TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT ON YOUR DISTRACTION OR ROADBLOCK BEFORE YOU REACT OR RESPOND AND THEN PUT EVERYTHING IN PERSPECTIVE AND ASK YOURSELF NOW WHAT DID I LEARN FROM THIS? DELAYED DOES NOT MEAN DENIED, AND SOMETIME MAN REJECTION IS GOD PROTECTION SO WHAT DID YOU GAIN OR LOSE FROM THE DISTRACTION OR ROADBLOCK. WHAT OR WHO IS DISTRACTING YOU?
