It’s been a while, hope you’ve been good too. Last month, I wrote a short piece about how routine reading isn’t part of my favorite things. Reading, as I’ve come to know, requires discipline and consistency. It’s okay to have one’s strong areas and weak points in things, even reading; but like in every other challenge, you turn your weaknesses into opportunities. If you are like me, and love reading books with highly imaginative and descriptive stories, you build your strength in that regard, and make sure you read such books that are beneficial regularly.
If you find it hard to concentrate on reading large volume books from end to end, don’t just give up on reading, start with smaller volume books and work your way up. Then, once in a while, you take books that were initially hard for you to read through, and with consistency and discipline, conquer it; encourage yourself with treats after such achievements, and push yourself to do more. Before you know it, any kind of book will just be a piece of cake for you to wholly devour!
Many people tend to forget the joy in reading as they grow up, have to solve many life’s challenges; family, work, sustenance; little knowing that reading books makes life’s tasks more familiar and easy to cope with.
So, let’s all read for fun, read all round, and not let a day pass us by without saying hello to our books. Remember, readers are leaders!
To my Muslim brothers and sisters, Ramadhan Mubarak to you all. May Allah accept our strivings as ibadah, Amin.
