The Blog

In our fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life. We often find ourselves rushing from one thing to the next, without taking the time to slow down and reflect. But, as the saying goes, “not all who wander are lost”. And sometimes, the best way to slow down and contemplate is by reading a good book.

To me books are a powerful tool for contemplation. They allow me to explore ideas and perspectives, and to dive deep into the human experience. Whether it’s a novel, a memoir, or a self-help book, there’s something about the act of reading that encourages me to pause and reflect. One of the most important jargon related to this topic is “bibliotherapy”. This term refers to the use of books as a therapeutic tool, to help individuals work through personal issues and emotions.

In my experience, reading can provide myself a sense of validation and understanding, as well as new insights and perspectives. I write books’ reviews and about contemplation on life I have been through in the perspective of what I understand, both from the books I have read and of course, from the book of life―my own experiences.

Another important jargon related to the topic of this blog is “mindfulness”. Mindfulness is the practice of being present and fully engaged in the moment. It’s about us paying attention to our thoughts and emotions, without judgment. To me both reading and writing can be forms of mindfulness practice, as they requires me to focus my attention and be fully present in the moment.
