Jesus and Mary know my heart and they know my intentions. We are human and no one can help but be distracted to some degree. But it is the Devil who wants you to use these distractions as reasons not to say your Rosary. It is very difficult for someone to make it to Heaven without saying the Rosary and it's almost impossible for someone to make it to Heaven if you have an aversion towards the Rosary of Our Lady.

if it's very difficult for someone to make it to Heaven without saying the Rosary, why didn't Jesus tell us to say it?   the Dominican Rosary didn't come along until the 12th century or so, meaning Catholics did not have it for roughly eleven centuries.  are they all in Hell or still in Purgatory because Mary hadn't appeared to anyone and given the Rosary yet?  

the Dominican Rosary, the Servite Rosary, the Sacred Heart Devotion, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and many others, are private devotions based on private revelations.  they can be helpful to one's faith but not everyone includes them in their prayer life and you can worship Jesus and venerate Mary without using those specific devotions.  if there's one place you can legitimately be a cafeteria Catholic, it's in private devotions.  you don't get to choose whether you believe in what the Nicene Creed says, whether you believe Church dogmas, whether you should attend Mass, etc., but you can choose your private devotions.
