It's been a while...

INSPIRED.



I read.



I read books. I read magazines.

I read labels and receipts.

I read recipes and text messages

And tumbls and tweets.

I read status updates, blogs, reviews and newspapers.

But mostly,

I read books.



I read contemporary books.

These books are the most real,

The most emotional things

That hit you from every direction.

Like you’re physically being attacked by

Tears, laughter, heartbreak

It’s real. It is so real.



I read a book recently that made me think.

I was inspired. I felt renewed.

I felt like getting up on a stage and pouring

Out my heart for everyone to hear and see.

I read a book that changed my way of thinking.

That reminded me who I am

And who I use to be.



I read a book that made me write.

This right here is a reflection of the

Feelings that that book made me feel.

I felt pain, and heartbreak, and sadness

And mourning and love and shock

And distress and relief.

And once that last page was turned

I knew I just had to write down

Every

Single

Emotion

I

Felt.



I read. I read a lot.



I read books. I read magazines.

I read labels and receipts.

I read recipes and text messages

And tumbls and tweets.

I read status updates, blogs, reviews and newspapers.

But mostly,

I read books.



I read books of all genres

Languages, and ages.

I read books for fun, for knowledge

For sharing, for inspiration,

For laughter, for tears

And for every other feeling in between.



And when I feel I can’t consume one more chapter,

One more page, one more paragraph,

Or sentence, or word.

I close the book.



And

I

Write.
