Five Minute Friday: Fight Against the Distractions

Fight Against the Distractions

I fight to put all the distractions aside. The rustles of the paper. The laundry running. Little feet going here and there. She's back on the little trampoline.

Then, there are the destructions within me. The thoughts about the rest of the evening. What needs to be done. What I want to do that may need to be pushed off for another day. The tiredness I feel in my bones. I'm not as young as I used to be, and I think I am fighting a cold. The thoughts rumble and distract.

There are thoughts about fear of not being who I want to be. What if I never get this “me” right. I am thinking of the goals I want to make. The distractions come, and I must fight to take the time. I must fight the fear of failure. The fear of losing out because I didn't fight for the truly important things in life and gave way for the easier path. No one is perfect, but doing what comes easy isn't a goal. I will fight. I may not succeed in all I wanted, but I will be able to look at myself and be better off for trying.
