Get Inspired: Read
11. June 2012
I was always an avid reader growing up. I loved to go to the library and peruse book after book, bring home stacks of novels that I practically inhaled. To this day I have an overactive imagination, so I always put myself into the books I read, whether it be Nancy Drew or Harry Potter. During my free time at school I would often pull out a book and escape to a different world, oblivious to the things around me.
Books are one of my favorite forms of inspiration. There are so many different authors and genres to fit what you are looking for. It always saddens me to hear a child (or adult!) say that they don’t like to read, because reading can be so fun and so beautiful. Multiple times I have had to put down a book because I get too emotional, and other times I have found myself yelling at the pages at something a character has done.
The best thing you can do for your mind and heart is to read. There are thousands upon thousands of lessons to be learned from books, and all it takes is a quick trip to the local library or bookstore to become captivated.
Next time you are feeling like you are lacking inspiration, settle down with a good book and get lost in its pages. Sink down into the words and realize the wonder and power that words and books can have on your life.
