Reading broadens your mind and thinking. However, is also really depends on what material or articles your are reading. I am guessing that the types of material and article you read really depend on your age category. However, no matter what you read, if you do not practice it and always take things for granted it will still lead you to negative path.
When I was a teenager, I love to read a love story and mystery story. Most of it is a fictional story. Why I do love to read a love story because it makes me feel loved and living in a happily ever after life. Why do I love to read a mystery story, because at the beginning of the story the author will always make you feel anxious and you will have to read till the end to have happily ever after ending. When I was a teenager, I have no stress, no commitment and I don’t to worry about money, installment and house loan. That is why I always tell myself, I am a lucky girl.
When I finish my college degree and start working in the corporate world, I start to read NonFiction material and article. The author I love the most is Cathy Glass, a wonderful and caring foster carer. If I remember correctly, her first book that I read was Another Forgotten Child. Is about unlucky girl Aimee’s life. How can a small girl life be so cruel? While reading my tears will flow down automatically because I feel so sad for Aimee. From that moment, I realise that not everyone is as lucky as me. Of course towards the end, is was a happy ending, however, the journey Aimee is not supposed to travel by a little girl. That is why I start to appreciate my parents and everything I have without being demanding.
When I reached the age of approximately 27 (I think). I start to read a lot about how to live a better life. At that age, I was in the corporate world for about 6 years, I have observed a lot of negative action where I name them as “Negative Drama In Corporate World”. The reason why is because no one is sincere in the corporate world. Of course maybe not all, but out of 100%, maybe 98% is not sincere. Everybody stick with you for a reason. You call yourself a best friend of mine, but when there is a problem, instead of solving together, you start blaming. There is where I start to complain and being very rebellious. I start to hate people who betray me. I start to isolate myself from everybody. I start to become a bossy person and do not trust anybody including my partner who is with me for about 11 years now. I tell myself, I can live alone and I can do everything by myself. Subsequently, I start to be very bad tempered. I get frustrated even with small things. This negative energy attaches with me for 2 years.
I guess I am really a lucky person. God loves me and cares about me. For 2 years I have been living in an unhappy life. My relationship with my partners getting worst that we nearly end our relationship. When my life is turning into disaster path, my superior who just return back from her long leave (due to personal reason) gave me a book which I have share on my previous post, Superlife Secretcodes by Great Sun. This books changes my whole life. Master Sun teaches us how to be a happy person, how to look things in different way. How to be more positive and how to eliminate negative energy? I am still practicing now and also requested my partner to read together and practice together so that we can learn together as we are getting marry soon.
I slowly realise that life can be so simple, why do we need to make it so complicated. I start to read more about Living Happily. Ways and steps to be more positive thinking. Live in minimalist lifestyle. Last time when I read lifestyle magazine, I will survey what are the new things to buy, but now I will just glance thru those pages with fashions, branded materials. I will normally concentrate on the good article share by others.
I read this article yesterday. Shared by Ng Siew Yen. Population of unhappy people is growing and if it continues, we will be facing with more commit suicide case, people will live without love and care. Human will stop to Love and Gratitude. Why wait to be Happy? Just like what Siew Yen say, we deserved to be Happy Now and Always.
Now, I know, reading is good, reading good material and article is also good, but we also have to practice, learn and always remember to Love and be gratitude. I am still learning and that is why I created this blog, is to journal down my Colourful Life. Be happy guys, because we will not know what will happen tomorrow. Let our God decide and we just need to continue to live happily.
