Usually, I share the same captions that I use when I post my quotes on my social media platforms. However, today, I’m sharing the Facebook memory that inspired today’s quote.
August 2, 2019
It’s Friday, y’all! Here’s today’s social media find. Decided to use my own quote.😊 We can’t allow distractions to throw us off track. Our purpose is far too important to let small things hold us back.
Y’all, sometimes distractions are hard to recognize (or we refuse to see them as distractions). A distraction can be as small as someone looking at us the wrong way or not speaking. Or it could be binge watching a Netflix show or spending hours on Pinterest. Anyhoo, whether good or bad, distractions keep us from focusing on our purpose. Enjoy life, but stay focused. Oh…as for the negative distractions, give them to God and keep going. They’re not worth our time or attention.
Yesterday I decided to log off on one of my Instagram accounts. Just like my Twitter account, I could see it was becoming a distraction and affecting me mentally and emotionally. Not a lot, but it was. Even though posts shared by the people I follow were positive and inspirational, the suggested posts that continued to pop up were about things that I found myself dwelling on much longer than necessary. Typically I’d blow it off and refocus. However, I’ve learned from experience that if I don’t handle it now, I’ll end up in the same place before, anxious and unable to concentrate. So it was best to log off now.
By the way, here’s today’s quote. Almost forgot to share it. ~ Shaun
