I will try to avoid and ignore distractions as I write this blog post on “Distractions.”
Actually, aren’t writing and also reading blog posts distractions themselves?
Last night, in a therapy group, people who were somewhat distracted focused on the topic of “Distractions.”
I wrote more, last night, about distractions, including compiling a distracting list of “bad” and “good” distractions. I’m not too distracted to remember that my list of good distractions included taking photographs.
Phones appeared on most people’s descriptions of distractions. I wrote that any “good” distraction can turn into a “bad”distraction if we can’t control it.
Music was also on my list of “good” distractions. When I walk to and from work, I distract myself by listening to music. This distracting music showed up yesterday:
Distractions can help relieve AND also add to anxiety. Sudden endings can be distractions, too.
Also, I tried to record the sounds and sights of the ocean last weekend and then was too distracted to share that brief clip. I hope this is a good distraction.
If you’re not too distracted, consider sharing your thoughts and feelings about distractions below.
Nothing can distract me from thanking all who help me write these distracting blog posts and — of course! — YOU.
