My Love of Books 2019

Image
Books upon Books upon Books...... I use to be one of those who would start a book and then would never finish it and then start another book and never finish it. The only book I had ever read fully through, which is actually surprising because it's a quite long one is Gone with the Wind, which turns out happens to also be my ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK and ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I've actually read a handful of times and every time I read it, it captures me, just as it had the very first time I read it, through every page, through every chapter....

So this year,  I decided to try audibles because life with three kids, therapies, appointments, homeschool classes, sports, etc, I'm in the car  A LOT!!!!! So, I decided to give it a go and try some Audible Books, and I love them and the kids love them, so I actually let them pick some books out too.

Sometimes I distance myself.... to something that feels real, to something that is unknown, to something that is me. I distance myself when I feel lost, I distance myself to escape, I distance myself when I'm crying out.... and when I distance myself I am not my true me.... When I distance myself it's because I need to work on bettering what's going on internally with me, so I seek out personal development... I have grown a true love of audibles.... I think 2019 is my year of Audible books...  I will do another posting about those and update it as the year progresses.... 
I completely shut off from my blog. For a few reasons honestly... A few very personal reasons and some out laziness I guess and focus on other things, but I don't want to get into all that with y'all and bore you with all the details, so let's just say I'm back and I'm ready to accomplish those goals I have. I have a lot of catching up to do to reach my goals, but I know I can do this…
