When was the last time you allowed yourself to pursue your passion? Apart from photography, my other passion is reading. I read every day. In fact, my day doesn't feel complete unless I read even just a paragraph before closing my eyes at the end of a long day.

To sit quietly for even half an hour and read for pleasure, to lose yourself within the pages of a book can be just that special “me time” that we all need to feel a little more balanced. Reading doesn't need to be expensive either – visit your local library, share book with friends (although I have to admit, I'm not very good with this…I've lost too many good books this way – so be warned!), there are second-hand book stores as well as great inexpensive online book depositories that will delivery right to your door.

If reading just isn't your thing, then that's ok – what is that passion that you haven't made time for because you've been too busy? Find it, re-ignite it and enjoy it!
