Distractions. They’re everywhere aren’t they? I’m discussing them a lot lately, because I see first-hand how damaging distractions are to us, to our minds, to our very lives. And the more I personally fight against these distractions, the more I realize just how easy it is to be enticed by them. Yet, many people don’t even realize they are living distracted because these distractions are subtle. And so many have been living this way for so long, they don’t even realize they are living distracted! This is the subject of today’s episode, and I invite you to journey with me for this next short while. We may be living distracted if… well, let’s find out together as we’ll find hope and encouragement for our real lives right now.
Are you living distracted?
I’m guessing right out of the gate you answered no. I’m not living distracted. I’m not even sure I should be listening to this episode because I don’t think it applies to me. If you’re thinking this or a similar thought, that’s okay. Hang with me here though.
Because I feel compelled to continue raising awareness of how distractions are affecting us and how we can overcome them to create a more fulfilled and peace-filled life, I invite you to look closer to your typical day with me. Because when I began doing this, I was able to see more clearly how distractions were consuming my life. I wasn’t aware of how distracted I was living on a daily basis!
So, if I wasn’t aware of how I was living distracted, maybe you aren’t aware either. And right now, that’s okay. But in order to live the abundant lives God has for each of us, shedding light on any sort of distraction to see it for what it really is. And it allows us to address it and make any changes necessary.
This episode is not to make either of us feel defeated or less than or a failure or a mess. It’s not to make us feel terrible about ourselves.
It’s to help us live fulfilled and more peace-filled.
So, you may be living distracted if…
you experience a number of these situations. And I share them in detail in this week’s episode.

And God continues to grow us through all situations and circumstances in life if we let Him. Including the circumstances of living distracted.
Friend, we may be living distracted now, but we don’t have to remain living this way. When we become aware of what’s distracting us, we can partner with God in removing them and refusing them space in our lives. Have a great week. God bless you!
