“The more that …

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ~Dr. Suess

 I am declaring Wednesdays, “Read It Wednesday”. There is a statistic that says that 33% of people after graduating high school will not read a book. What a sad commentary… I love to read! Reading opens the door to so many things that can enhance your life and give you new insight, a different perspective  and inspiration to live the life you want to live. And that is what this blog is all about, living beyond the norm, beyond the status quo and doing more than just getting by.

My favorite book that I have read so far is “Quitter” by Jon Acuff. What a great book! It is a “how-to” book on going from your day job to your dream job. I have read many inspirational books that when I was through with them I wanted to change the world, become Martha Stewart or Sister Teresa but its not enough to be inspired if you don’t know what steps to take to live out what you are inspired about.

Pick up a book today and read a chapter. Go to the library, get on Amazon find a  book on a subject that interests or encourages or challenges you and Read It (on) Wednesday!
