DIVERSIONS
by Samantha LeBoeuf

Our Daily Wisdom Word today is “diversions”.  Before going any further, I am going to give the Webster Dictionary meaning and daily wisdom words meaning.

The Webster meaning of Diversion-1.  An instance of turning aside something from its course.  2.  An activity that diverts the mind from tedious or serious concerns. (partial).

Daily Wisdom Word Meaning of Diversion: The habit we develop that can sometimes distract us from the course we need to stay on. 

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of deep thought, and hear a noise?  You realize all you are hearing is the wind outside.  You try to go back to that deep thought process and can’t seem to return.  You have just been subject to a diversion. 

Once your mind is distracted by a diversion, it is difficult to remember the very last thought you had prior to hearing the outside noise. 

Often times this happens to me, when I lose my train of thought.  Is it the distraction that causes my mind to lose my train of thought?  Most likely, but more likely to be a distraction because you were not in a deep enough thought state. 

This is why many of us meditate, so we can learn to relax naturally. 

Meditation is a form of disciplining our minds and ability to stay on one thought, following it through.  Had you been in deep enough thought the wind would not have been a diversion from your thoughts.  We must learn to be vigilant with our thoughts and stick to the thought process we are in, especially if it leading somewhere helping you solve a problem. 

Diversions can literally be a roadblock.  It can also be  a word we use to describe our mental state being easily distracted.  It is hard to stay focused on a similar thought process without getting distracted if we have an overactive mind. 

This is why in order to avoid diversions, you must become vigilant when you get distracted in returning to the same line of thought leading you to some of the best ideas and solutions your own mind can create. 

In order to be vigilant with our thought process, one tool we can use to be focused is journaling.  With meditation and journaling and much patience, the brilliant thoughts you were having will be part of training your mind to be strong.  It also helps with depression and sadness.

When we are aware of a particular thought process we can stop, or start it depending if we wish to be vigilant with those thoughts or steer ourselves into a whole new line of thinking if dwelling on something is past the point it should be.  Knowing yourself and your thoughts are two of the most powerful things you can have as tools to be a writer looking at a specific thought process and carrying those thoughts through on paper avoiding writer’s block all together over time.
