“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worst than the suffering itself, and no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream” -Paulo Coelho in The Alchemist
One of my favorite great, uplifting, inspirational reads: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It is a fable about following your dreams. I’m not going to lie I had to read it twice to fully absorb it and love it. The first time I just kinda read it, the second time I really absorbed it and in small ways became a little bit a part of me.
I love this quote a lot. It reminds me to not be afraid. I will get in certain situations were I’m afraid to do a task, because i’m scared of what others will say or think. I tell myself i’ll do it next time when I’m more comfortable. But no, that’s not a good approach. You just gotta do it. Whatever it is, put yourself in the most awkward situation to get over your fear.
