Daily Prompt- Off the Shelf

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Off the Shelf-  Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?

 

I ask myself ‘ which book would be the first one you would like to reread ?’

Tough question as my bookcase has all my favorite books which I purchased with  money I saved and spent on books instead of cloths. Osho, Paulo Coelho, Deepak Chopra, Dale Carnegie, Robin Sharma, Brian Tracy and many more have accompanied me for many years. I never get bored reading anyone from these. I have some light comedy, suspense, detective novels also which I purchased with clear intention that they are not just one time read. Read and throw away time. I never waste money on them. Sorry, I’m drifting away.

My first purchase was ‘ STOP WORRYING AND START LIVING’ . I stumbled upon this book in my friends place and got hooked to it.

I never believe in asking solutions for my problems to others. I believe every problem comes with a solution.

I got this book at a time when my son joined Indian Navy, my daughter got married, my husband is somewhat workaholic and I was suffering from chronic some diseases and was very depressed, always worrying.

This book came as a boon to me. There are not only causes and analysis for worries but simple solutions and stories of other sufferer and how they could come over their worries.

When you read about others problems then only you realise that how tiny or petty are your problems.

Little understanding, not running away from problems, facing them, trying to find a solution, little exercise and meditation all helps.

So when I find time I reread this and one more ‘Maximum Achievement’ by Brian Tracy and recommend to others also.

  2. Oh, I simply loved ‘How to stop worrying and start living’ by Dale Carnegie. I was in my 20s then and did not even know that I was a worrier. Yes, this book made me see a lot of things that needed to be changed. I always wanted to give this book to my mom for reading but somehow never got around to it. I guess I should do it now.

    • Thanks for sharing your views. You should certainly give it to your mom she will love it. I also like chicken soup series.

अभिव्यक्ति - जो महसूस किया अपने आस पास उसे अपने शब्दों में व्यक्त करने का एक प्रयास एक ऐसा प्रयास जो सहज हो, ईमानदार हो...... बिना किसी बनावट के व्यक्त हो... मानों कोई नदी .... जो उद्दाम अविरल अबाध गति से उमड़ती चली जाती है. ज़िन्दगी की राह में, सुख-दुःख जो भी मिला साथ साथ बह चला, और रचता गया हर पल एक नयी अभिव्यक्ति !!
