why reading is for lazy people

Let’s be honest, I am a lazy person. If I can do things an easier way, I for sure will take the shortcut.

Have you heard of Brene Brown, the author of “The Power of Vulnerability”? One of my favourite books, I mentioned her before.

It took this wonderful lady A COUPLE OF YEARS to do research on a passion project, interviewing HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE, several WEEKS or even MONTHS to consolidate and get the grammar and the spelling checked, needed the collaboration with a publishing company and so many more hours and proof-readers involved…

After so much effort, focus, time and love, discipline, hard work and sleepless nights (okay, I will stop listing words here :D) to create this wonderful piece full of knowledge and revelations… what is left for me to find out what conclusions she came to?

JUST GRAB THE BOOK AND READ

Within a couple of hours or days I can inhale all the knowledge she found out on this topic, all the experience she gained on her journey. Sometimes when I read books, call me crazy, but I feel like cheating, like copying someone’s homework, because all of the work was done by someone else and I just effortlessly read their conclusion, put into an understandable and pleasant language for me to digest.

I heard people say “I don’t like reading” before. This doesn’t make sense to me. It would be the same as I heard someone saying “I don’t like series”. My response to that phrase is usually “So you haven’t read the right book yet.”

For every person, every field of interest, every hobby, there is an interesting, catching book just around the corner.

Books can open our horizon and let us see the world from another angle.

Let’s give this little miracles made of paper another chance and go the shortcut.

You know I’m just a breeze Skipping over the sea

Paula Fuga is just gorgeous. Unfortunately I can’t insert any youtube videos on this post, but it would be a pity to have missed this heartwarming video.

Paula Fuga – Misery’s end

Just something i most do
For future
Always knew that it would be
Just so
I’d be counting the days
And i won’t get use to away
Before I sail away
I want you to know
Why I must go
I promise to come home someday
And all these loving memories
I promise to keep with me
Misery’s end is on your lips
But please don’t say don’t go away from me
You know I’m just a breeze
Coming into the trees
Before I sail away
I want you to know
That when I go
I try my best to phone daily
Remember no news is good news
And the good news is, “I love you”
Before I sail away
I want you to know
That when I go
I come back home to you safely
And when I return
I hope you pick me up in baggage claim C
You know I’m just a breeze
Skipping over the sea

“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.”

“The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they’ve died. They’re like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the pharaohs. Only instead of being made of stone, they’re made out of the memories people have of you.”

“I didn’t destroy a Death Star or anything like that, but I did just get through the fifth grade. And that’s not easy, even if you’re not me.”

“I wish every day could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.”

“A fresh start gives us the chance to reflect on the past, weigh the things we’ve done, and apply what we’ve learned from those things to the future. If we don’t examine the past, we don’t learn from it.”

“You don’t need your eyes to love, right? You just feel it inside you. That’s how it is in heaven. It’s just love, and no one forgets who they love.”

“But I really believe, and Daddy really believes, that there are more good people on this earth than bad people, and the good people watch out for each other and take care of each other.”

“We carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the very choice of kindness.”

“Learning who you are is what you are here to do.”

“The best way to measure how much you’ve grown isn’t by inches or the number of laps you can now run around the track, or even your grade point average — though those things are important, to be sure. It’s what you’ve done with your time, how you’ve chosen to spend your days, and whom you’ve touched this year. That, to me, is the greatest measure of success.”

“I think there should be a rule that everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives.”

“Auggie can’t change the way he looks, but we can change the way we see.”

All rights and thanks to Sadie Trombetta. I hope she forgives me for stealing all the pictures and the quotes from https://www.bustle.com/p/can-you-ever-forgive-me-is-the-one-movie-every-woman-needs-to-see-this-october-12023785

but I was just too lazy to reinvent the wheel and she did a great job!
