How many distractions?

A few days back I stopped and observed. I looked at things I was giving much time to and weighed them in the balances of my life. I do this from time to time to root out the things which take me away from God and my relationship. Many things were taking up much of the time. I made a hard decision and this was to cut them off one by one. This was a hard decision because these were things I had grown fond of. I knew though, God was more important. How many distractions did I have? Too many…      

As the days went by, the desire slowly went and it is not to say they are gone but they faded. It made me realize that life was more important. What did I learn/What am I learning? These things I was spending much substance on and the substance was mainly time. With these things now gone and my substance still available, I realized I had time to do things I had wanted to do but did not do. I said to myself “When you take things out which you shouldn’t really be spending much time on, the things you should be spending much time on have the place to move.” If I have long tasks, which require long hours but I put short tasks of enjoyment in long term sections, I spend less time doing the long tasks until I eventually stop doing them.
