2011 Reflections

I entered 2011 thinking this year would be just like the previous four. From 2006- 2010 I did not have a clue as to what I should be doing with my life, but definitely knew I was in need of some serious changes. During this time I was determined not to let complacency consume me. So I enrolled and completed the "Strategic Communications Graduate Program" at National University. By the time I graduated in 2009 I felt lost. I now had a BA and MA in Communications, but I had not idea what I should be doing in that area. I went through each day literally feeling like I was wasting time and wasting my life. I was just wondering around going through the motions of everyday life, all while praying that God would speak to me about what I should be doing with my life- I needed to know my passion.

Reading Is Fundamental

I came across the above passage while online. I find this to be a very true statement, which speaks to the essence of who I am. I find reading to be a calming action that helps take your mind off reality and enters you into a place of peace. It keeps your brain active and your mind is constantly flowing.

Taking time to read is essential to growth and productivity. A passion for leisure reading is a great thing to have and it's never too late to develop it.
