What are you reading right now? As a motivational speaker who was raised by a school teacher, I believe school is never out for the pro. Translation: I buy a lot of non-fiction books. Even if I intend to buy only one, I end up with at least two since I’m too cheap to pass up Amazon’s free shipping over $25. So what’s my crime?
I’m guilty of feeling jealous pangs as I’m sandwiched on an airplane between individuals reading fiction. Last month it seemed like everyone was biting into one of Suzanne Collin’s Hunger Game Trilogy’s. Last week I sat next to two proper women turning beet red reading E. L. James Fifty Shades of Grey. As they lustfully turned pages, I was marking up pages with my pen and highlighter to be able to return and reference.
Yes I know I’m the only one keeping me locked up and chained to this pattern. I hold the key. I can escape my reality and join another’s as soon as I give myself permission to play. Let’s all give ourselves permission to play! For me it’s time to take a page from my seatmates. Amazon here I come! And with a trilogy, I’m certain to get free shipping.
