The Whys of Life’s Distractions

Life is full of distractions.  As soon as you get through one challenge, another pops up!  It seems to be life’s way of keeping us on our toes.  Certainly with this in mind, life is never boring.  Why do we have these distractions in life?  Let’s look at some reasons.

Life is trying to get our attention: Maybe you’ve been living your life oblivious to those around you.  Maybe you haven’t put time and attention into the relationships you are a part of.  Maybe you’re not exercising and your body has some strong words for you.

Life has a bigger plan for us:  If you’re struggling at your job and one thing after another keeps happening, maybe it’s life’s way of telling you it’s time for a change.  Maybe your spouse or partner dies, or your child gets a rare disease.  Maybe you’re meant to do something like help raise money for cancer research, help the people in Haiti, or adopt a child.  Maybe it is working with your partner, or a family member, on their entrepreneurial business, instead of the job you dislike.

Life has a sense of humor: Maybe life just wants to throw you some challenges and see what you do.  Those with great senses of humor can look back on events in their life and laugh about how they reacted or about their thoughts and actions in the moment.  Life is absolutely about having fun, so perhaps your life distraction is here to bring out your sense of humor and enjoyment of life.

Life wants to teach us something new:  There is always something new to learn.  You never finish learning, the lessons, however, come in different ways as you grow and change.
