Ten Five Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them.
This is kind of a hard post for me. I had to think about it for a while. Most of the time I read romances. Since I’m already married, I think I have the falling in love thing down. Or at least I hope I do! 😉
1. Visit the South (North & South Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana)
I love books set in the Southern U.S. The way authors such as Karen White describe the historic settings make me curious to what they look like in real life. I mean, I’ve seen pictures, but certain historic places make you feel sometimes. Does that make sense at all? (I’m also a sucker for a southern accent!)
2. Talk to my daughter about consent.
This may seem like a weird want to do, but after having read so many books about date rape or date rape drugs I feel like I want her to have an understanding of what consent means. I hope talking to her (in the future because she’s 8) about it will enable her to come to me in the future if she needs to.
3. Cut sugar out of my diet.
I read this book because I was interested in author Jasinda Wilder’s approach to well being and weightloss. Having a degree in Food and Nutrition Management, I’m always interested in “diets” and I loved that this wasn’t supposed to be one. She has a lot of great insights, although I’m still not sure how I feel about the use of Stevia as a replacement. I do love her positive message, though!
4. Change my daily routines.
So, I haven’t read this book yet. I have read the parts about forming and changing habits, though. I would really love to apply this to my life. I know I have some unhealthy habits to break and this book could be the push I need.
5. “Do epic” every day.
Life flies by. Seriously. One day you’re 18, the next you’re 38. Don’t wait for special occasions. I want to make each day memorable. If not for myself, then for someone around me. It’s the little moments and memories that count.
I know, nothing super exciting on this list, but I’m not very adventurous. 😉
