Reading=Food for the brain

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I had a great time hanging out with a good friend and our kids. We went to a ‘twilight parade’ and watched the movie Frozen in a cute little amphitheater afterwards. My girls loved it of course, what girls wouldn’t love Frozen in the park after filling up with candy? I had never been to a twilight parade and I just loved it! Everything that went by was covered in twinkling lights or glow sticks that were just gorgeous with a candy colored sky backdrop. It was a great way to spend time with my kids…even my older boys had a good time! Too bad I don’t have any good pictures to share 🙁  well some things were only meant to be experienced in real life…

I also got the chance to get some great training that I will write about later and I got some reading time in! YAY I love getting reading time!! Reading has always been one of my favorite things to do. I started reading before I went to school, I have no idea how, could be thanks to my older brother. Anyway I used to sit on the floor and read my dad’s Sydney Sheldon books while my brother was at school. My mother slept most of the day because she worked nights. So the book was my best friend. I think all those grown up books on my little brain contributed to my love of all things weird and dark lol.

I used to be into reading historical fiction and young adult (YA) fantasy. Thanks to my sis in law, check out her blog , I am lucky enough to have access to TONS of wonderful books I would have never known about. While I still love to read those types of books, when time permits, I have moved on to something more useful. No I’m not saying that fiction is not useful, because it is. When I need to unwind and just relax I still get my fix. They are my go to need to release stress books. And who doesn’t like a quick easy read? But the books I’m into now offer so much more than an escape from reality. They feed my brain and change my thinking which in turn changes me, and that’s priceless.

So what am I reading that’s so good? Well right now I’m reading “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olsen learning how to get ahead by doing the little things everyday.  “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill…a must if you want to understand what the 2% know that you don’t. “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek if you’re in any business you’ve got to know you’re WHY before you figure out your how. And my personal favorite “Code to Joy” by Drs George Pratt and Peter Lambrou.  A four step system to unblocking your mental self. This one is an amazing read and has personally worked for me. I encourage everyone to give it a read to get rid of those beliefs that are holding you back in life.

That’s all from me for now. I’m going to go enjoy this last bit of nice weather with my chitlins! Hope the sun is shining for you!

SHARING is CARING so if you like what you read please feel free to share it!!
