I ended 2019 with a Facebook argument with an 84 year old woman. She said that my annual goal is taking from my enjoyment of reading because I’m competing. Who am I competing with? A personal challenge isn’t a competition.
I knew going in that I wasn’t going to change her mind, because she and I have different ways of filling our reading time. She just goes for it and does her reading. I need the nudge to get started. Turn off the TV. Make it quiet time. Put down the phone.
I did leave it at “to each her own” but I have a feeling that I will be hearing from her again. I won’t let it stop me from my reading and the way that I schedule my down time.
