I know I’ve been gone for a long time and my life has been a whirlwind lately and I didn’t read enough in the last 2 years, I regretted not reading each day and I hated not doing it every day, but as life turned out to be, I never got enough time. This year, however, I will make sure I get in touch with things I loved doing previously and not leave those parts of me behind anymore because I do miss them. I’m trying to get in touch with myself because I seem to forget who I am, time does change things. I hope to get back on track with creativity and not lose it completely.
I’m moving to a new city again and will be starting this year with new possibilities and new people and I wish in all this hustle of getting things done and starting afresh, I do get to spend some time knowing myself better because I missed myself.
Here is the first thing I thought of doing this year to get back on track, start with a reading list which is not going to be very long but I do hope I follow it.
I plan to read some fictional and some non-fictional book and I have a lot of books in my reading list so I’ll try to pick them one by one. I’m also behind writing book reviews of the books I loved in the past, so another thing that needs to be done is to write more and express myself as much as I can. I have done better in the past by writing every few days, I think at least two reviews a month is doable, reviews could be of movies or books, but hoping to keep them insightful. I’m a little afraid of writing since I haven’t written anything in a while, but I guess once I start it will get better.
I don’t know why I’m even writing this post, to give a little update of what’s happening or just to put things in front of me so that I know that I’ve to do them and bring some clarity to my life. To be true I don’t know how to move forward or in which direction. However, I believe time will tell, I just have to execute.
Books I’m considering Reading:
- Becoming by Michelle Obama
- A Woman of Substance by Barbara Taylor
- Poor Economics by Abhijit Banerjee
- The Little Book of Stoicism by Jonas Salzgeber
- Essentialism – The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown
- An American Sketchbook by Vasily Grossman
- The Sellout by Paul Beatty
- The Ghosts of Berlin: Confronting German History In Urban Landscape by Brian Ladd
- How to Walk Away by Katherine Center
- Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
These are the few I’ve already thought I would be reading and once I get into the groove I’ll add more to this list.
I’m imagining myself enjoying these 🙂
Happy New Year to you if you have stumbled here somehow 😀
