5 Benefits of reading fiction! πŸ“šπŸ“–⁠


There are many benefits of reading fictions such as expanding your imagination, motivating you to be the hero in your life, increasing your empathy, learning different styles of writing, and reducing your stress.

Besides this list, there are many more benefits of reading fiction. These benefits are some that have been beneficial for me. I hope they helpful for you as well!

5 Benefits of reading fiction: πŸ“šπŸ“–β 

(1) Fiction expands your imagination. You visualize the characters & scenes. πŸ˜ƒβ 

(2) Fiction motivates you to be the hero in your life. In most novels, the protagonist faces obstacles to become a hero. Win or lose, you respect the protagonist for his/her tremendous efforts. Likewise, you can do the same in your journey. πŸ‘Šβ β 

(3) Fiction helps you empathize for others. When you read fiction, you empathize for the characters undergoing hardship, an important quality to have in your life and career. ❀️⁠

(4) Through fiction, you learn different styles of writing that aren’t usually shown in nonfiction books. πŸ–‹οΈβ 

(5) Fiction reduces your stress by taking you into other worlds and into the lives of unique characters. 😊⁠

It’s too late.Β Where I’m going, you have to die.


I wrote this poem for Positive Masters at http://www.positivemasters.com & @positivemasters βœ’

I met a girl at a coffee shop.

We fell in love. Then we fought.

She thought I lied about being alive.

I cried, “Let’s still try. We can still thrive.”

She replied, “It’s too late.Β Where I’m going, you have to die.”

– Positive Masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, Poem, 10/4/2019 –

I based this poem on my unpublished first novel, a paranormal, suspense and romance story that I worked on from October 2006 to January 2014. πŸ“–

Practices: (1) Focus on what I can control; (2) Work on one thing at a time to maximize my productivity; and (3) Be present and put aside my fear of what may or may not happen tomorrow.


My anxiety level is up today so seeing this post by @riskhappy is motivating me to snap out of my terrible feeling. I’m going to focus and work on what I can control. First, my appointments and work I have to finish dealing with my immediate deadline, followed by another deadline, and then another, and then paying a big bill. The first is extremely important because if I succeed in executing it, I can complete what I need to do for the other three areas in the short-run and long-run.

Practices: (1) Focus on what I can control; (2) Work on one thing at a time to maximize my productivity; and (3) Be present and put aside my fear of what may or may not happen tomorrow.

What are your strategies to alleviate anxiety and stress? I hope you’re doing well! ❀

Get ready for the new kids!


Who are we to know what’s right?

Even as adults we’re still trying to figure out our own life.

Get ready for the new kids.

They’ll rise, they’ll fall.

No matter what, they’ll find their way through it all.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Poem, 5/31/19 –

Every older generation seems to criticize the younger ones. We can guide the younger generations in a positive way, but in the end, the children will choose their own destiny by trying, failing, and succeeding on their interests and passions.

We control our own destiny, and influence those coming up. The children are our future. They learn by observing us adults. If we yell and scream all the time, they’ll become adults yelling and screaming at their family and at people at work, maybe even at strangers in the public. Peace starts with us, and it continues with the legacy we leave behind by those who were influenced by us. Let’s choose kindness, love, empathy, and compassion to make our world more peaceful!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Come with me. Let’s get away. We can go where we’re normal.


We can be strange.

A little deranged.

All caused by our magic.

Come with me.

Let’s get away.

We can go where we’re normal.

You live in a fable. They laugh at you and call you unstable.


You live in a fable.

They laugh at you and call you unstable.

You’re not playing your role.

Nothing about it is fun.

That’s why you threw away the script and wrote another one.

What are your strategies for your goals? Do you include small to medium projects with your large projects?


Often times we’re so focused, even obsessed on #winning the big business projects, the marathons, that we bypass the smaller ones that could play a huge role in building us up. For me, the big business projects take a long time and until then, I don’t make any income from them. Recently, I’ve had to adjust and include small to medium projects in order to get quicker turnarounds for income to help sustain myself financially. It can be stressful at times not knowing the future.

What are your strategies for your goals? Do you include small to medium projects with your large projects?
