Reading–My Passion

Reading is my passions!  My dear friends will attest to this powerful declaration.  A while ago, I stumbled onto this poem and tucked it away in my treasure box.

To read is to empower.
To empower is to write.
To write is to influence.
To influence is to change.
To change is to live.
– Unknown

Reading is the catalyst for creativity.  Gaining knowledge opens our minds.  Through reading we broaden our understanding of life.  Biographies allow us into the lives of others and learn how they overcome their challenges.  Fictional pieces allow us to escape with our imaginations into another world. Self-help books help us to grow and improve a skill.  Poetry allows us to enjoy the music words can play.  It doesn’t matter what genre we hold in our hands the end result is the same–the words penned weaves its way into our consciousness changing us forever and expanding our knowledge.  Thus, the power of reading does change our lives.
