Monday’s are awful. To combine with my awful Monday, I am reading “The Principle of the Path” by Andy Stanley to make it even worse. Why does this add to my disappointment of Mondays? Well, it’s because I really do not enjoy reading books. I don’t know what it is, but I just cannot bring myself to sit down and read unless I absolutely have to. I feel overwhelmed with a new book and that makes it hard to start reading. There is just something about it that irritates me to the max.
I have only read the introduction and the first 5 pages of chapter one of “The Principle of the Path.” With my deep seeded hatred for books in mind, I would consider the small introductory portion of the work I read as something that draws my attention. I like the style the book is written in.The Author is using his life and personal accounts in combination with his own rhetoric and suggestions. As I read the introduction Monday morning, I noticed how down to earth the author seemed. That sounds cliche, but it’s the best way I can describe what I felt. After reading the intro, I decided to stop and rest because I was beginning to not feel well from the intense food poisoning I endured over the weekend.
“And some roads are better left untraveled. That’s what this book is about.”
BY THE WAY: To top off my wonderful Monday, I am also recovering from food poisoning! I spent pretty much the whole weekend, which just so happened to be my birthday weekend, with my face burred in a toilet. All of Saturday and Sunday consisted of laying in bed suffering from dehydration, dizziness, chills, sweats, and everything else entailed with dying from food poisoning. It got so bad, my mom almost took me to the hospital because I couldn’t keep anything down and was so dehydrated. All in all, I’m feeling 1000% better and ready to take on the rest of the week.
