Good Distractions

The ultimate goal of this process is for us to be able to choose to “distract” ourselves (i.e., get out of our heads, let go of our negative worries, and take a conscious break from the day-to-day stress of life) in a truly healthy way.

I appreciate a good distraction that gives me a break from some other negative feeling, like fear. Hype me up when I’m down on myself. Tell me I’m doing great when I’m intentionally trying to learn something new. Heck, tell me an interesting story when things get hard or stressful. I appreciate that. Yesterday, I wrote about my top three distractions. Today, I wanted to just say that not all distractions are bad. We don’t need to fight to focus so hard that we’re no longer having fun. Don’t get me wrong, it’s good to practice discipline and focus. But it’s also good to let yourself enjoy the distractions that come at the perfect time especially if they bring you joy.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
