No More Distractions

IMG_1652

Have you ever been in the middle of a dream and you just decide to say “no” and then walk away and the dream is over?… it just stops and ends there…

I’ve heard of people doing this before and a mentor told me once that I could control my dreams… but I’ve never done it…

But in the dream… well I couldn’t get where I was trying to go because I kept getting distracted… by small things… they kept grabbing my attention… and then I began to panic… panic because I thought I was going to be late for where I was supposed to be…

And every person that walked in the door was distracting me from what I was supposed to be doing…

But then… then there was a moment… a moment where I said “no”…. I simply said and “no” and I woke up… and once I was awake I got out of my bed and began my day…

And I think I’m trying to send myself a message… In so many ways I know I am allowing myself to be distracted… To be distracted by little things that don’t matter… Moments of drama…

But it’s dumb… it’s dumb if I say I want one thing… I tell the Lord I want something… He’s positioned it for me… or at least for me to prove that it’s what I want… and then I find myself caught up in distraction… forgetting about what I want….

So that’s why I think it’s time that I began practicing what I did in my dream… Finally saying no to what I’m allowing to distract me and moving forward…

Because at the end of the day… if I really want what I say I do… well… distractions won’t help me get there… So…. I hope… For myself that this is a moment where I consciously decide to say no and to begin to recognize when I am distracted…
