The majority of my family & friends know me as the “Apple Girl”, I’m always on my devices, I’m checking things up or working on them and I’m literally inseparable from whether it’s my iPhone or MacBook Pro because those two are literally part of me !
It’s so hard to even take some time off my electronics and try to live in the moment, be part of what people like to call the real life… but it’s actually important to do so. I’ve started reading again, ACTUAL BOOKS. Not on my phone like I used to do, with iBooks or audiobooks. I’m going to old school and trendy libraries now, and I’m picking up the books that grab my attention.
The best of this new way to life is, I don’t even have to force myself. I’ve remembered how much I used to love reading. I’m discovering many beautiful and amazing stories, or thoughts from these incredible authors, and I’m loving every second of it. I feel prouder of myself, and it gives me confidence on my intellectuality so guys : start reading too !
Honestly, it only brings positiveness into life and that’s what we all need. These are my six picks of the month, I’ve already read two of them and feeling super motivated for the four remaining ones 🙂 I’ve inspired my best friend to follow my lead, she’s talking about it on her blog, check it out.
I picked up a new book at Urban Outfitters the other day, it’s “milk and honey” from Rupi Kaur… I started reading it in the bus, it’s beautifully raw and absolutely tearing me apart. I haven’t liked a book this much in forever; her feelings are so true and intense, yet she knows how to express them without being in the much… I want to be able to write down my own feelings like that. Maybe someday.
I used to be an avid reader when I was younger & had time for it… but since I grew up into “adulthood” it’s become almost impossible for me to find the time to read. Recently I’ve tried myself to writing. I’m lacking a lot of things and am aware of that, but I am willing to practice it every day in hope to get better, because I’d really enjoy if I was able to share the stories I make up in my mind. I also believe that reading other authors could help me improve; here’s a list of books I’d like to read in the near future & I’m gonna try my hardest to do so !
