What is a book for you? To me it’s one of the passions, which has accompanied me since the earliest years of my life and the only one, which allows me to enter a completely different world … a realm, which is normally impenetrable for average people … a place, in which I can step in the heroes’ lives without violating their personal space. I think that every bookworm will agree with me that reading books develops our imagination and broadens our minds. Isn’t it a wonderful feeling when you have to rack your brain to solve an intricate mystery or just to picture a fabulous world which doesn’t really exist? There’s nothing better than the smell of a new book and turning pages while waiting breathlessly for the next twist in the plot. Why is it worth reading books to kids from the earliest years of their childhood? I think you can easily answer this question on your own! Reading books to younger and older kids has an enormous influence on the development of their imagination. It’s a great exercise for their brains and it enriches their vocabulary. It has also a beneficial impact on their ability to create correct and interesting spoken performances. Attention! It’s not another teacher’s talk! Don’t allow your kids to become intellectually impaired in the future! Of course, there are many different sources thanks to which you can gain knowledge … but don’t resign from books for good!
Now you start wondering why I serve you here a pure scholastic causerie … well … it’s just a good introduction to make you find today’s centerpiece of this entry! In this post I’d like to refer to a quotation of one of my favourite authors Nicholas Sparks, whose books fill the shelves of my modest room … here it is:
“The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John
The lesson you should learn today from this quotation is easy! Find your own interests, which will fill your free time, which will make your life more colourful and meaningful! So many of you have no idea where the source of your inner dissatisfaction, lack of achievement and disappointment comes from! The frequent reason of such a state of affairs is lack of clear goals which you could pursue. Everything around you seems to be dull and temporary. Your success doesn’t make you as happy as you would expect. As I’ve already mentioned in the previous post related to celebrities, only our hard work and involvement can make our success permanent and really satisfying. Be happy about little things, and the time for bigger ones will come for sure! Don’t think I’m a psychology expert … no! I can only say that finding these simple truths may have an enormous influence on your tomorrow … and what do you think?
See you around!
