Sundays are for laziness and to be filled with what makes us feel good, full and alive.
Sundays are made to be inspired.
Today I want to share a book. A book I love. A book that gives me something different each time I read. An inspirational book. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
Paulo Coelho is a brilliant brazilian author and The Alchemist is one of my favorite books. It tells the story of a young Andalusian shepherd journeying to Egypt after he dreamt of finding a treasure there. We follow his adventures after he met a fortune-teller which comfort him in the idea of going to Egypt and an old king telling him he has to follow is personal legend, “what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.“.
During his journey Santiago will meet many people, fall in love, and learn a lot. About life, what is important, love, mission. It is a poetic and beautiful book with a (not boring) lesson. Every time I am taken by the story. Every time I understand something new and it opens new perspectives. The Alchemist should be on your bedside table, it is a guide to life, to find your personal legend, your own treasure!
One of my main mantras and belief comes from this book:
“when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.“.
