The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“You will never be able to escape your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say.”

-Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

This international best seller reminds us to listen to our hearts, follow our dreams, and never stop searching for our treasure. It implores us to keep the wonder and magic of childhood in our lives and to believe that truly anything is possible.

 “And, when you want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

-Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

While reading, I was inspired to reflect on what my own Personal Legend could be and what treasure I was truly seeking. We all write the stories of our own lives and have lofty dreams and aspirations. Don’t give up on them in favor of what is practical. Don’t be discouraged and settle for that which is conventional. Encourage one another to go all in. It’s hard to be envious of the woman pursuing her dreams when you are chasing fast after your own.
