What according to you is Entertainment?
As I enter into answering the question I was asked in class I wanted to give you a clue with the above quote,( which I found on Pinterest!) on what I think brings true pleasure.
Entertainment is simply a method to take our minds off of the hectic things we do in real life and give us a few seconds to enjoy the moment. You know…to escape reality which often is real hard to face. Entertainment is a very subjective topic. It depends person to person that what he/she would go for entertaining themselves.
For me, the most magical thing is reading. It’s something that has made me into the person I am today. To be very honest, I read like the ink from the book is oxygen and I am gasping for breath.
Albert Einstein, one of the greatest physicist and philosopher of the 20th century has said,
“If you want your children to be intelligent,read them fairy tales”
Reading books can also never be considered a waste of time. It enhances your imagination, makes you question your habits and at the very least improves your vocabulary. So this method of entertainment is not only going to make us forget the awful things in life for a few moments but …behind the scenes it’s carving a better and shining version of your personality!!
Reading a good book is like having a conversation with the finest minds of the past century!
The stories that I have read throughout my life till now always have surprised and inspired me in numerous ways. Sometimes even a simple sentence resonates in my mind for days. Books give us the confidence and alter our beliefs. We start to distinguish b/w right and wrong.
I believe I have made my point in conveying that I truly believe that reading is a great source of entertainment. But of course that are a million other ways and every single method of entertaining yourself is not in any way “wrong”. I love to talk to my parents and being with friends. So if these things bring happiness to you that will be termed as “entertainment” Music is a wonderful method to entertain yourself.
But what I want to stress is that there is of course no wrong way of being entertained..it is purely a personal choice. But won’t it be wonderful if that method is doing some benefit to you behind the scenes ? Won’t it be amazing that you would be gaining in some way without even putting in any effort!?
So I would like to ask you To choose such a method to make you happy that would be constructive for you. Because if it is developing you that means the world will have gained a richer and skilled person. It would even make you happy and content!
From One of my favourite books I found my all time favourite quote…
Afterall, “ Books are the plane, and the train and the road. They are the destination and the journey. They are HOME.
