” Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now. And that’s a revelation for some people: to realize that your life is only ever now” Eckhart Tolle.
No matter what you have been through, make every one of your experiences count for something. Be better because of them. Don’t be defined by them, don’t let them make you someone you know you are not. Your strength is not built on just letting things be, but through resistance. Through overcoming things, you once thought you couldn’t. Diamonds as I have learnt are made in the rough, be one of them.
“Reading to the mind is what exercise is to the body” Sir Richard Steel. That explains why so many have picked up the habit over time, some do it as a form of therapy, some do it for fun. The reading enthusiasm however, does not extend to all genres of books. Self-help books particularly are not everyone’s cup of tea.
