The mind is such a beautiful thing to marvel in… brilliant composers from across the world have presented masterful literary work in knowledge and learning. When we exercise its ability through routine reading, we are enhancing our social, mental and spiritual health. Much like conditioning our bodies through strenuous activity, sharpening one of our greatest assets can promote steady focus and character building qualities.
Growing up as a child I never read many books, other than the random assignments in school, books were a pretty low priority. Thankfully the books I did read left a lasting impression: C.S. Lewis – The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Ramona the Pest – Beverly Cleary and Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. These tantalizing tales of adventure, friendship and mortality fostered loving stories of life. Now a day’s reading has become a regular routine…
As I’ve gotten older I find myself reading many forms of literature – Novels, American History (WWII) and newspaper columns currently fit the mold. By broadening my perspective in voice and written outline, my mind is continuously bending… absorbing humanities distinguished track record and lasting legacy. I encourage you to train yourself, establish the beneficial traits of learning and allow the time to grow mentally.
