Who else loves to read?

Who else loves to read?

Ever since I was a young girl, I have loved to read. There have been times when I was too busy to read like when my girls were little, and then times like the pandemic where I read a lot. In January of this year, I even wrote a post, Who needs to read less because I thought maybe reading so much was keeping me from being out in the world with people. Fast forward to earlier this month when I already met my goal of reading 36 books for the year, or 3 a month. I have been reflecting on it ever since wondering if my assumption was correct. I realized that other than a couple lazy Sunday’s when I stayed home and read all day, most of my reading is in the late evening or early Saturday and Sunday. Since I live alone now, I decided that reading is a healthy choice for me at that time of day. Sure, maybe I could work out more, but is watching TV really any better than curling up in bed with a good book? I have made the choice that I am going to make sure that I spend time with family and friends and go walking or hiking as much as I can, but I am going to stop telling myself that I read too much. I love to read, so I am going to quit setting any kind of reading goals, high or low, and just read when I want. Who else loves to read?

All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.

While it is easy to focus on the negative aspects of life, I choose to continue looking for the good in people and in the world around me, and I want to share why they do what they do. I am the proud mother of three adult daughters and live in the Chicago area. I have worked in the Early Childhood Education field since 2001, and I write books when the inspiration comes.
