Little Life Lesson and Bit of Grace 14: Read. Read. Read.
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." ~Dr. SeussRead. Read. Read some more. Reading really is the most powerful tool and can take you anywhere. Reading is such a powerful tool in this crazy world. Reading fuels the imagination and gives you the power to think and share ideas on a higher level.
Create a passion for reading. Read magazines, newspapers, classics, novellas, articles, short stories, best sellers,"chick lit," historical fiction, non-fiction, biographies...just read.
Take time to read the classics. In school, you will be required to read certain books that you may think you won't like. Take the time to read them as you will appreciate them and re-read them as an adult.
Read children's books even as an adult. The stories and pictures make for a great combination and can take you back to those lovely childhood days. Read to children if you get the opportunity. When you read to a child and see that love of a story, it really is electrifying.
Allow yourself to get lost in a library or bookstore. You never know what you will find when browsing those aisles.
"Today a reader. Tomorrow a leader." ~Margaret Fuller
