Today we are glued to screens - probably way, way too much. We become addicted to the video platform.
Think about beginning a little library for yourself, that you can go back to over and over, to feel happy, to learn, to grow, to become a different person.
If you haven’t yet, find and read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. And, Twelve Pillars, by Jim Rohn.
Spend a little time each day - maybe each evening - reading a few pages. Once you’ve read each, set it on your shelf. Start your little library.
Then find The Strangest Secret, by Earl Nightingale. (He joined the US Marine Corps at 17, was on the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor, and was one of 15 surviving Marines that day.) Another little wonderful book for your library.
My library, my reading make me happy. Maybe these books will be great for you as well. Try one. If it suits you, great! If not, keep looking for what suits you.
Reading connects neuronal synapses that protect our brain, that help balance the damage screens can do to our brains. And, being happy is everything.
Try a little reading. To paraphrase Otis Redding, ‘Oh, you may be weary. Try a little reading. You won’t regret it, no no, Try a little reading.’
Let me know what you think of these three book ideas. I’d love to hear what you think!!
