For When I Don’t Feel Like Reading

Dear Self,

It’s okay to sometimes not feel like reading. I think you like to put too much pressure on yourself. You think you always have to be reading something. Have to find the next book, write the next review.

It doesn’t always have to be that way.

Cut yourself some slack. Take some time to explore other avenues of expression. Listen to music. Write stories of your own. Meet people. Do things. The books will still be there when you feel like reading again. In fact, there’s probably a very good chance that even more books will be there, because you’ll have given them some time to bring out more.

And when you stop and think about it, cut yourself some slack from the other things in life. The important things will get done. I know it can get stressful and crazy and you can feel run down and tired by all that life tries to throw at you, but take it one step at a time. The important things will get done. You’ll see. Don’t try to kill yourself in the process. The important things will get done.

You’ll be reading again before you know it.

Sincerely,

Cassie
