A few days ago or maybe it was last week, the days go by way too fast, I was gathered with some clergy who shared they felt they weren’t reading enough. Then a day or two later, amongst a different group, someone else shared they weren’t reading enough. I then began to wonder, “What is reading enough?” and “Am I reading enough?” Then a realization…
The days and weeks I spend reading—reading for self ( not for school, church, or other) are the days I have some of my best thoughts.
On these days, I’ve had some good deep “Ah Ha” moments, creative break throughs, and got a lot done (or so it felt). Which is kind of ironic since at the end of the days I spend responding to emails, running from one meeting to another, or cramming in my “to do” list are the ones that leave me questioning, “What DID I do today?” “Where did my time go?”
How does reading affect you? Are you reading enough?
