one day i had an aha moment and i thought, " i would love to read but i don't have time anymore."
i bit the side of my cheek..seems i do that when i am in heavy thought..or stressed and tried to recall my reading days and i remembered when i was younger i would sit by the faint light of the bedside lamp until the wee hours morning when time was pushing down hard. clock watching because i knew the babies would be up in several hours...hmmmm....just one more chapter. in those days technology wasn't a time thief
that very moment i made a commitment to myself to read again because
inspire teach shape take us outside our comfort zone convict carve grow change expand rewrite challenge
i have missed all of these things that books gave me. i feel my mind slowing a bit with age. NOTE TO SELF: maybe picking up a book instead of my phone will help my mind to remember how to think
one chapter a night. period. a funny thing happened some nights i read a couple chapters
add those nights together and a book was finished--see what a little each day can do! i am choosing to be impeccable with my word. this is a practice. a hard practice for me but i am being filled with the gifts that books give. and this is a good thing.
