Day 11

Reading has never been as issue for me. Comprehending, at times....has been an issue. Do I not fully pay attention to what I am reading? I tend to assume that because I am reading it...i will understand and remember it. Does anyone else ever feel this way? I would assume so. Why do I not naturally read actively? Thinking about this makes me wonder if there is something wrong with, but I know that it ultimately is from rushing my way through reading. There are even times where I will begin an paragraph I have an interest in and within seconds I'll of skimmed to the last sentence because i wanted to feel like I had just read something and learned something. I also realize that I need to practice focusing on changing my approach to how I read because to make a change. Difficult as it may be, I know I am capable. I once read that there are two types of people when it comes to learning-listeners and readers. Labeling this definitively doesn't seem  to me as very accurate, it just shows me what labeling can do. I dont want to label myself a someone who struggling reader or have poor comprehension. It is accurate to say, that I have not necessarily applied myself-even though i am capable-and think that mind needs the practice of when i begin to read, I take a deep breath, relax, soften my focus and allow my interests to lead my motivation into learning what it is I am reading about. Patience is my focus, being patient with myself to earn my own trust and feel confident
