A Good book will change the way you think, live and love
“Go to environments that expand your mind. Spend time with people who inspire you. Read books. Grow. Get better. Your life is your choice.”
It all starts with reading. We can’t instantly do a 180 with our environment or relationships, but we can always pick up a life-changing book that moves our minds and lives forward. Reading is absolutely key!
The best moments in reading are when you come across something —a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things— which you had thought special and particular to you alone. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone who is far away. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.
For many of us books are as important as almost anything else in the world. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, crisp squares of paper unfolds world after world after world —stories and ideas that sing to you, comfort you, and excite you. Books help us better understand who we are and how the next step forward is possible.
They remind us of what love and hope mean.
They show us how to live and thrive through hard times.
Truly, books are the perfect companions and the perfect entertainment: always available, always insightful, and hours of enjoyment and education for each dollar spent.
You are not the same person you were a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago. You are always growing. Experiences don’t stop. That’s life. And the very experiences that seem so tough when you are going through them are the ones you will look back on with gratitude for how far you have come. Of course, it takes practice to get there, emotionally and physically, and that will be your queste.
