Read Something Every Day

Your day is made up of moments, strung together into the wonderful whirlwind of your life. Some are crazy, some are exciting, some make your toes curl and some make your blood boil. My favourite moments are the quiet ones – the ones where you can just sit down, close your eyes, slow down your breathing and just think…

Other moments aren’t as nice – they’re boring. When you’re waiting for a train to arrive or staring out the window once you finally get on. When you’re trying to convince your brain to go to sleep or when you want to lie in bed for just 5 more minutes. When you’re grabbing a quick sad desk lunch while you scroll through infinite tweets or the flood of engagement announcements on Facebook this week.

I am a firm believer that almost every one of those tiny decisions that we make on a daily basis build us into the people we are.

I’m currently reading ‘An Astronaut’s Guide To Life On Earth’ by Chris Hadfield, who writes about his journey of becoming an Astronaut. (Sidenote: Chris Hadfield is an avid early adopter of Periscope. This brings me great joy). His mentality is something I agree with. more


On My Reading List

I came across a nice illustration that said:

Reading is absurd. We stare at slivers of wood full of strange markings for hours while we hallucinate vividly.

I like that. It’s a nice thought.
