First of, all what is reading for you? As for each people can be varied. Now, I will answer that question for my own.
Reading for me is such of supplement of life that can always lift me up when I’m down. Therefore, I always be careful and picky of what I am reading.
I do love reading since I was a kid. I love to read magazines, comic, adventure novel for kids and so on. I collect some of them but I lost it somehow. 🤔
Entering my youth the reading was slightly different, I added teenager magazines and english adult novel. Just for addition, I love english since I was a kid so I bought English-Indonesia translate magazines.
About around 20s my life has changed related to the death of my mom. I was so depressed, I couldn’t believe that I lost my mom. At that stage of life, I just knew about death on television. I knew my grandparents have death, but because they’re old right? My mom still young around 40s, I just couldn’t accept the reality.
So the fact, it was happened. I need to find out why? I always seek the answer through books, since I was not a person that easy to tell about how I felt at that young age. In addition I don’t easy to believe in people’s saying. I can trully understand only by reading.
I read many Buddhist books, inspirational books, motivational books and that sort of things until I get some point:
- Even when you cry and destroy yourself, it’s still happened. So it is useless for grieving all the times.
- Death can happen to anyone in any age, including my mom.
- Death is beyond our capability.
By those three points then I start to stop grieving and continue my life.
Since then I keep reading those kind of positive reading. I find it feeding my soul, encourage myself, inspiring me to grow stronger to handle any difficulty in life. Everytime I lost my direction, I just always have to read and read to remind me what my goal in life.
Joining a worpress and become a blogger give me access to read such a great positive, motivational and inspiring reading while I can also actualized my dream to be a writer to inspire others (hope so 😉).
