Think of your favorite color.
How does your favorite color make you feel?
What thoughts come to mind when you think of your favorite color?
In fact, why is a particular color your favorite? Is it because of some association or memory connected with that color? If I visited your home, would I clearly see that color represented in your furnishings or clothes closet?
Our lives are filled with color and somehow we consciously or unconsciously make choices to surround ourselves with particular colors (and not with other colors) which is something I find worthy of consideration and reflection.

It seems so many people are very busy these days doing many things at the same time, multitasking as best they can.
Frequently I hear people comment they just don’t have enough time to get everything done. The phone rings, a new email comes in, people stop by for a chat, someone needs a favor, the boss walks in and needs something done ASAP, a child needs help, it’s one distraction after another. They think if they just didn’t have so many distractions, they could get their own stuff done.
But what is a distraction?
Is something really a distraction if we don’t label it as such?
What if rather than naming it a distraction, we just include it in our day?
