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. 😊⁠

The light will push through.


Something’s happening.

A feeling, a buzz-like high.

The light will push through.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem #138, 6/27/2018 –

No matter how hard life gets, whether it be financial hardship, a death of a loved one, or a broken heart, we have to do our best to see all the good we have in our life. Day by day as we work at our projects, we get better and a bit closer to our dreams. In person and through social media, we can support one another. We’re in this together.

I took this picture in Waikele, Hawaii on 10/30/2018.

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

We All Get Lonely Sometimes


We all get lonely sometimes. Whether you’re brokenhearted, on your own, a single parent, or trying to make a dollar out of 15 cents, we’re experiencing the same quiet nights together. Sure it may be dark but when we look out at the black sky, those stars keep twinkling at us and that moon keeps giving us light as if they are all telling us, “Everything will be alright.”
