I won’t lie, I’ve never been much of a reader. I once dropped out of an advanced English course, because of the heavy reading requirements. I’ll spare you the details of that dramatic, high school story, and you’ll thank me later.
Most of you know that the past few months have been a bit of a rollercoaster. It’s been a rough and bumpy, emotional ride. In fact it’s left me a bit shattered at times. Although news has been positive and things are improving, I am still going through the motions of a process that I may never understand.
Luckily for us, we have so many distractions in life now, from social media to Nextflix. I can’t believe I am saying this, but I’ve actually found a place of peace and comfort in reading. It’s been a quiet distraction, and a fulfilling distraction. I’ve re-explored my faith, asked myself tough questions, and dug deep into the crap that keeps me up at night. All with the help of a few positive books, I’ve found the perfect way to navigate each turn, curve and flip of the roller coaster I’m on.
I figured I would share some of my favorite books that can be of help during those difficult times. Some I’ve read, and some I am waiting to read, but all of them are worthy of sharing with as many people as I can. I hope one of these good books, will help you through a difficult time in your life. Just like me, you never know what you’ll find out about yourself, flipping through the story of someone else’s life.
