Middle age is when you've met so many people that every new person you meet reminds you of someone else.

Power past distractions

Distractions pick at you, grab at you, seek to entice you and to push you aside. The assault never stops, yet you have the strength, the will and ability to live beyond it all.

You can form an intention and follow that intention no matter what. You can feel your purpose, live that purpose and render the distractions irrelevant.

Always, the world’s meaningless noise clamors to get you caught up. Live and function on a level higher than that noise, and it ceases to be a problem.

You can power your awareness past any distraction. Because you can ask yourself what’s most important, and you can answer.

The goal you’ve set, the difference you want to make, the dream you hold, these all matter. Remind yourself how much they matter, and aim your focus in their direction.

Know who you are, what you love and care about most. Feed your purpose into the power of intention, and distractions won’t distract you for long.

— Ralph Marston
