The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

Image

This semi-autobiography book easily became one of my favorite inspiring novel of all time! It is so inspiring and motivating to the point where it puts everyone “claiming to have a hard life” to shame. Alexie meshes tragedy with comedy and takes you through this emotional journey ofย ย a struggling native indian teenager’s life, and obstacles (bullying, racisim, etc) he goes through to escape his world.

The book has its tragic moments where you instantly fall in love with Junior, the Native Indian teenager, however, it has its comedic moments too. I will not get into details but I STRONGLY recommend you read this book. You will not regret it.

Even though I know the novelist will not read my blog, however, I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for inspiring me to be a better version of myself.

Writing a diary is HEALTHY!

Today at work, my colleagues and I had a very interesting discussion about writing diaries. One of my colleagues stated that it was healthy to write down your emotions for various reasons. Hours later, I decided to google some information on diaries, and I can gladly confirm that YES it is healthy to own/ write a diary.

Apparently, writing your feelings down releases some sort of stress and tension from your brain. As a consequence, most diseases that comes from bottling up your emotions, like depression disappears. Writing assists with regulating emotions unintentionally.

My advice of the day is keep writing! and for those who don’t write, START writing. Life is too short to be depressed ๐Ÿ˜‰

Quote of the day!

“Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.” – Vince Lombardi

Basically, the message of the day is DO NOT QUIT. Only you can hold yourself back from achieving whatever you plan to achieve. It has been a while since l last posted something. I thought of sharing one of my favourite quotes with you ๐Ÿ™‚

Ps. I apologize for not posting book reviews as I have been busy with studying Italian language, however, I am currently reading an interesting book. Can’t wait to share my thoughts with you ๐Ÿ™‚

Progress on my bucket list

As I was going through my old posts, I came across a bucket list that I have created a couple of months ago. I am proud to say that I can cross something out from that list. It seems that I have unawarely inspired some of my friends to change their habits and improve their lifestyles. How did that happen?ย I guess my optimism had something to do with that ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with learning foreign languages. Working for an international oil company gave me the opportunity to not even learn Italian but work in Rome for a long term assignment. Three months ago, I did not even know italian numbers and now I can engage in a basic (simple) conversation. I can see progress. Hopefully sometime next year I will be fluent and move on to learning Spanish language ๐Ÿ˜‰
