Recently I have really formed a relationship with books. As a kid I remember always having a book in my bag and reading every chance that I got, but as I got older life seemed to get in the way and reading just didn’t seem as important anymore. I wish I could go back to the days of not having to worry about bills, laundry, work, etc. but as we all know those days are long gone, at least for me. This for me is when books really play a huge role in my life. If anything books are my escape from the world and any troubles that I have.
Don’t get me wrong I also enjoy my tv, but theirs just something about curling up on the couch with a good book, a good glass of wine, and a blanket that takes me away from it all. That makes me forget about what I did that day and what still needs to get done, and if just for a little while makes me forget about what is troubling me for that day.
I think it’s so important to find something that you can use as your escape. Whether it’s exercise, cooking, reading, or what not I hope you all have something that is an escape for you. And if not an escape, something you can do for yourself, to not loose the person that you are or to work towards the person you want to become.
