One lesson I am slowly learning is the benefit of reading slowly. First off you never miss the minute details. Whether it is a government document, a novel, or scriptures, reading slowly allows for you to truly think about the text before you and what it means. I have had numerous English classes where I rush through the reading, come to class the next day and play catch up because I was not reading slowly enough for me to catch an amazingly insightful detail. I often have to remind myself to read slowly because our natural tendency is to get over and done with all things in life. But as I am learning and growing I am discovering the real importance of find joy DURING the journey, not perpetually waiting for the after. Anywho, try reading slower.
