I read a lot of quotes each week before I settle on a quote for les mots and when I first spotted this one, originally said by Paulo Coelho – I had shivers.
Recently, someone put me on the spot and asked me what I wanted to be remembered for one day. I could have said a million things, but the first thing to roll off my tongue was:
I want people to say that I chased my dreams and worked hard to make them happen.
That moment is likely what caused such a reaction in me when I saw Paulo’s quote. Because I’ve always believed in adventure. In doing things that scare you. In taking chances and following your dreams, no matter how scary the road to achieving them may be.
So next time you find yourself saying no to something new, remember that adventure is good for the soul.
