Life is a Journey. Even the distractions laid in your path are part of the Journey. It may seem like the distractions pull you away from "The One True Path" but that is a lie. Your path is what you choose it to be.
The PBGs offered an interesting package to me on my last long run. It has caused me to think hard about my actions. Today's Supposition comes out of that thought train. I must try to ensure that the distractions in my life are chosen to aid me in my journey (eg. provide stress relief, not procrastination), brighten my spirits, replenish my resources and/or support my aims and goals in life (i.e. my Journey).
It is OK to be distracted as long as I am not neglecting my responsibilities.
