I love going to bookstores. For some reason, I could not stop myself from buying a new book even if I&nbsp;have not finished the ones that I recently bought. I guess this love for reading started when I was in gradeschool since my mom really loved buying all sorts of educational books for me. This seed planted grew and gave birth to my love for writing. <br /> <br /> Loves - reading, writing, foodie meet-ups with family &amp;&nbsp;friends, travel, nature trips, walking, concocting dishes, chocolate milk, italian/japanese food, blue/black clothes, shopping for best bargains, collecting/buying inspirational books, quiet time, prayers, corporate social responsibility projects, teaching kids, bringing encouragement to people, inspiring impact of the written word<br /> <br /> I&nbsp;love my family &amp;&nbsp;friends soooo much.<br /> <br /> I&nbsp;love God with all my heart, mind and soul<br /> <br /> These lines from Grenville Kleiser truly&nbsp;inspire me:&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <br /> &ldquo;There are fine things which you mean to do some day, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others. Today is the day in which to express your noblest qualities of mind and heart, to do at least one worthy thing which you have long postponed, and to use your God-given abilities for the enrichment of someone less fortunate. Today you can make your life - significant and worthwhile. The present is yours to do with as you will.&rdquo;<br /> <br /> Enjoy your uniquely shaped journey and share your blessings with others!Spread&nbsp;kindness&nbsp;:)
