As I write this I’m on a train to Milan at the moment and have just finished reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (after reading about it on my friends blog here) and boy, what a trip it is to read that book on this journey.
The book is about finding your Personal Legend and the pursuit of your dreams.
‘When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.’
I don’t find myself to be religious, but I do believe there is a force that pushes us to where we need to go and we could either choose to ignore it or go in the direction in search of our ‘treasure’ and for me at this particular moment in life I feel happy that I decided to pursue my dream of traveling the world.
It’s also about reading the signs along the way in pursuit of your dreams and I can’t imaging a more literal sign than my name on a cafe in the middle of Italy telling me that I’ve made the correct decisions and I’m where I’m meant to be right now in life.
I hope you all read it and find your Personal Legend, maybe your journey is just waiting for you out there!
P.S. If you’ve read it or planing to read it please let me know so we can discuss! International Book Club anyone? =]
