For your consideration…

We often think about distractions as negative. They keep us from focusing. Controlling them is the biggest challenge for those of us who meditate.

But there is a flip side. There is a balance. Distraction can be a helpful tool. Sometimes we are so in our zone we are hyper-focused and can get stuck in our thinking. It can become blocked. A distraction is exactly what we need to break the zone. Or if we are scared, a distraction can take our mind off of the fear. Working hard can exhaust us, a distraction is just what we need to create a break.

Today is just a little thought reminding us to use distractions to our benefit. Sometimes they are just what we need.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
