Monday Musings: On Dreaming

Monday Musings

Start the week with some wise words worth pondering. – rosemawrites

Monday Musings is this blog’s newest feature. 🙂

Every Monday, I will share some wise words from the awesome books that I have read.

Here is my word-to-ponder for this week:

From: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

The Alchemist

My thoughts: 

This is my first read from Paulo Coelho. I read The Alchemist way back April 2013 and I still think that this is one of his best.

Back then, I am an English teacher in an Enrichment Learning Center. That was not my dream. I am a Journalism graduate and my dream is to really become a writer.

Looking back, The Alchemist and this quote lightened the fire in my heart. This book encouraged me to pursue my dream, amid its impossibility.

Now I am a Public Relations Writer. I may not see my byline yet in major newspapers but atleast I can now tell that I have fulfilled my dream, to be able to call myself as a writer.
