“Be present. Make love. Make tea.
Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation. Buy a plant, water it. Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed. Have a smart mouth, and quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain. Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Know your worth. Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Let go of what doesn’t make you happy. Grow.” - Paulo Coelho
Paulo about summing it up for us. Read The Alchemist years ago and it still remains one of my favorite books. The message is one of getting out of your comfort zone and taking a risk to pursue what truly makes you happy. It’s also a short read, so if you’re like me and have started and stopped about 5 books at once it’s an easy follow through.
Also just discovered Paulo made the book a free download to make it accessible to all. Link in my stories to download it. 🌹🔥
