When it comes to picking books to read or put on my Want to Read list, I always gravitate towards historical fiction and historical non-fiction. This strikes me as strange since I absolutely loathed history as a student.
Lately, I have been driven to read about World War II and the badass women who played a role during this era; all because of a book club I attended. I fell head over heels for these heroines and found myself finishing the book, always wanting to read more.
“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” -Steven Spielberg
When I first started dabbling in finding a mentor, I tried finding people who I aspired to be like or were in careers in which I was interested in. At first, everything seemed great but often I would pause and find myself saying “but that’s not me” or “I don’t want the same things”. I gave up on mentorship for a while and determined that mentoring just wasn’t for me, nor worth my time.
