The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Hello Honeybees,

One of my favorite quotes has always been

Paulo Coelho

Oprah was the first person I ever heard say this, so I thought she created it. Imagine my surprise when I started reading The Alchemist by Paula Coelho.  One of the major themes of the book is my favorite quote. 

How I missed this book in 1988 is beyond me…. Oh yeah now I remember. 

I was a college student trying to find that delicate balance between education & partying.  If it wasn’t required class reading I wasn’t reading it. Did someone say party??

Thank God I grew up and rediscovered my love for books.

At the beginning of  2015 I saw that a lot of my Facebook friends were either reading or re-reading The Alchemist.  You know it’s a good book when people are re-reading it.  The final straw came when I read that Idris Elba was set to star in the movie version.  I HATE reading a book after the movie.  So I had to get to reading.

This was the perfect book to help pull me away from my phone, laptop, television and social media.

I’m so glad that I took the time to read The Alchemist.  Actually the timing couldn’t have been better. 

See, I’m finally pursing MY Personal Legend. I finally know MY purpose and what I want to accomplish.  And guess what…..the universe IS conspiring to help me achieve it. 

I know that as I pursue my Personal Legend there will come a time where I will need to re-read The Alchemist.  We all need a reboot from time to time.

I suggest you put down the electronics and pick up The Alchemist and get to reading.
