I was running at the park this morning and I was reminded of an experience one day years ago when we were feeding the ducks at this same park. There was a mother duck and her babies, and several people were throwing food at her. She became so distracted with the abundance of food that a seagull swooped down and gulped down one of her little ducklings. I was horrified and surprised because I only thought seagulls fed on crickets and garbage at the dump.
To me this was a dramatic lesson in the power of distractions. There are so many distractions in my life that I know keep me from fulfilling some of my life purposes. It takes constant focus and refocusing to stay on course.
