In 5 years, you will be the same person aside from the books you read and people you meet.
I would add “and the languages you learn”.”
Reading blows my mind.
I tried to escape it as a 5th grader, perferring Scooby Doo instead unless it had to do with science.
I’m still a lover of non-fiction. Mostly biology.
I got into it with the Harry Potter books, then lept to Suze Orman, Suzanne Sommers and Dave Ramsey.
I downloaded the Overdrive app which allows me to borrow e books for free from my Montrose Library. When I figure out how I managed to get the book on my phone and tablet, I will share.
It’s an elaborate e-pole-vaulting type trick involving Overdrive, Amazon and Kindle.
Meanwhile, I just finished “Smart Money Smart Kids” by Rachael Cruze and Dave Ramsey and “Knockout” by Suzanne Sommers.
I wish I could read as fast as my new favourite rabbit-earred robot “Chappie”. “Chappie’s got a book? Chappie’s got storries?”
I’m mentioning Chappie a lot these days. I love him.
I was spellbound by “Knockout” in the first few pages. If you have ever been chronically ill or lost a loved one to cancer, you must read this.
I have seen what cancer did to my beloved stepparents. Within weeks, each parent was already gone. In their place was a shell of a person that somewhat resembled them in speech but the light was gone. It was as if they were behind a gauze curtain and I couldn’t reach them. I promised my husband that I would never do chemo. Never.
Suzanne’s explanes the biology, nutrition, and lack of peptides in cancer patients.
Bioidentical hormones as cancer protectors.
I know that Bi-est and Pro-gest have given me a great quality of life for 13 years and kept me a very young 47 year old. You will have to rip these out of my cold, dead hands. Correction, dead hands. I have Reynaud’s and my skin is always chilled.
I have vampire skin…just ask my husband.
I think that reading many wonderful books has allowed me good health to travel the world and meet amazing people who I have helped and who have helped me.
*Pimsleur Mandarin Chinese I CD set. My car was my classroom and opened up another continent for me.
I speak Spanish, some French and some Mandarin now. Instead of yelling at Houston drivers I would say “where is the hotel?” in Chinese.
What if we all spoke the same languange?
AWESOME LIFE-CHANGING BOOKS:

each by Jon Acuf
I got to meet him.
Dr Fred Emmite, my nutritionist who will have helped me lose nearly 40lbs when I reach my goal.
Thousands of ladies hurting and helping on FB’s Endometropolis.
Many new Chinese friends in Chengdu （including a baby panda who seemed kind of like a person）, Xi’an, and Beijing. They don’t see many Westerners in China and it’s very rare for a Westerner to attempt Mandarin with them.
It blows their mind. It makes them smile. I like being that person.
Never stop learning.
My Grandma will be 102 this fall. I still have A LOT to learn.
Including how Overdrive really works.
