30 Day of Letting Go Challenge – Day 9
Let go of distractions
This is another BIGGIE for me! Especially now with only 7 days until my wedding! Holy Lord Almighty, am I ever distracted! I included this picture of my little squirrel friend because he reminds me of the movie UP where the man and boy cross paths with a dog whose high tech collar allows him to speak. At one point the dog is talking to the pair and then suddenly stops and says, “Squirrel”! That sums me up pretty well. I even use that line frequently to explain my flighty behavior.
Anyway, it seems the more I have to do the more easily I become distracted. Today, I am battling this tendency of mine by keeping a notebook near by and writing down whatever it is that is distracting me from moving forward. For instance, I have a long list of ‘to do’s’ and I keep thinking of more things I need to add to the list. When I’m online it is especially hard for me to stay on task. So when I become distracted I have been jotting down the distraction so I can look at it later once I have taken care of my task at hand.
This tip may or may not work for you. However, today, whenever you feel the pull of distraction just remind yourself of the task you are trying to complete now and do your best to be kind to yourself by not trying to multitask everything. Mindfully, do one thing at a time and then give yourself credit for every ‘to do’ you are able to check off! Don’t focus on what is left ‘to do’; Just focus the next ‘to do’.
By the way, remembering to take your vitamins and eat are part of your ‘to do’ list whether you include them or not. If you don’t take your care seriously then soon you won’t be much good to anyone!
I love you guys! Thank you for reading! Have a beautiful NOW and enjoy all your moments today!
