It’s a start of a new month. That means Mental Health Awareness Month has came to an end. But remember mental health awareness doesn’t end at the end of May. It is a year round awareness! Remember to continue spreading awareness about mental health and see what you can do for others in your community and for those in your own household.
Due to my work schedule picking up, I will be limited on the amount of articles I post per week. There might be days I might have to reschedule or post later that day and weeks I might have to postpone. But I will be posting every month. Aside from my hectic work schedule, I want to come on here and share with you something I’ve been wanting to do for quite sometime, and that is to expanding my knowledge. I want to learn how I can improve myself and make a change in my life and see what I can do for others. I also want to expand my vocabulary. I feel like I’m very limited when it comes to words I choose when I speak and when I write for you on my blog and there is times I feel like I lack a lot of knowledge so I’m taking the time to learn and improve. I says there’s always room for improvement. I feel like there’s so much more to learn. Ways I get my knowledge is from speaking to others and hearing there experiences and learning from their failures and successes. I also enjoy reading books. I’m a big autobiography type girl and I read a lot of non-fiction. I have a very small book collection and I plan to add more. It’s been proven that books help expand your knowledge and build your vocabulary. I also believed knowledge helps with critical thinking, helps us prevent past mistakes we have made, and it can also help us set future goals for ourselves, careers and businesses. Knowledge can help us in every aspect of our lives.
As I mentioned earlier I’m a book reader. I didn’t really start reading books until I was 19 years old. I knew what I wanted to do with my life (career wise) and I knew knowledge was going to take me there. I’m ashamed to admit that it does take me awhile to complete a book due to my hectic schedule but I read when I can. I purchased a total of 7 books this week and they are on there way. I just received 2 books today and I can’t wait to read them. I will be sharing the books on Instagram when they each arrive and I like to share my opinion on each book I read. I know I have other options when it comes to reading a book like on my tablet/iPad or phone. I also know I can listen to the audio version as well but to me, nothing compares to the physical copy. I enjoy taking notes and highlighting with my Gel highlighters. I LOVE the new book smell and the fresh pages when you turn them. I also enjoy putting tabs on the page I left off on or buying book marks for each one of my books. You can call me old fashion and yes, Barnes & Noble is my favorite place to shop when it comes to books. When I get a house, one of the things I want to do is create a library. Just a place where I can sit, relax, drink my decaf coffee, tea, or liquor and read. That’s a must in my house.
I absolutely can’t wait for these books arrive. Tonight I plan on getting started on one I received today. Like I said before there’s so much to learn and I would like to share my knowledge with others and I hope others share their knowledge with me. With that being said, we are here to help educate each other and help one another. With all the protesting going on, black lives matter and all lives matter movement, what I decided to do is educate myself and see what I can do to help those out in my community. At the end, we are all going to need each other. Always keep in mind, with knowledge comes power, with power comes action, with action comes change. And it’s up to YOU to take that action and make that change.
Quotes: “Knowledge is Power” and “With Knowledge Comes Power, With Power Comes Great Responsibility.”
