14 days quarantine | Sydney, Australia - Day 2
Being stuck in a room for 14 days I can't travel much physically, but I can travel infinitely mentally.
Last night when I woke up the clock on my phone showed 03:03 am.
I couldn't sleep, I had slept for 4 hours and that was enough, I woke up and I felt energized.
I did my daily meditation for 30 minutes and after that "I got ready for the day" I didn't have to do too much because being in quarantine I can't leave the room.
At 4 am I picked up the book Papillon by Henri Charrière, which I already started reading some days ago and I hadn't got too far. I was amazed by the stories that I found there. I read the rest of the book in around 8 hours, with breaks I finished around 3 pm.
My brain was on fire, after a 30 minute nap I was ready for the next book, Night by Elie Wiesel which I finished in around 2.5 hours.
It was more than 10 hours of reading, where I "met" many people and "travelled" in many places France, French Guiana, Colombia, Venezuela, Romania, Poland. My imagination was stimulated to the maximum.
My previous reading record was 8 hours reading in one day.
Some people would say that they don’t have time to read, I say that if you read you will create more time.
Reading for me is as normal as eating. Usually, I read or listen to audiobooks for 1-2 hours a day, some days if I am very busy I won't read anything, but those days are rare.
If 10 years ago someone would have told me that one day I will read for 10 hours in one day, I would have told him/her that he/she is crazy, and stupid and something like that is impossible and not only for myself but for anyone in this world.
Yes, I used to be very closed-minded, from drinking so much alcohol.
Maybe you're telling yourself: ''I can't even read for 10 minutes''.
If you can't read for 10 minutes then read for 9 and one day you will get to 10.
Jokes aside MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TIME because time is passing, so make sure that you won't get to that day and say:
I could have done so-and-so and I haven't, but now it’s too late.
Uhhhhhhh, that's the weight of regret and that is the heaviest pain.
