Tonight I shared my list with some of my friends and got encouragement and comments saying ambitious. 

Well I think doing is better than nothing. At the end of the year, when you review the whole year, u maybe just finish reading 30 books out of 52 books, but you will not treat it as a failure but a great success to get more knowledge and deeper thinking. 

You don’t know what will happen unless you try. I will try my best to live a beautiful life from now on.


Hope the whole world is enjoying a beautiful life at the same time.Image
