The Alchemist

I just completed this book, The Alchemist written by Paulo Coelho. The book takes you on a spiritual quest of finding your purpose in life, or as he describes it, your legend.

I wanted to share this book with you because I truly enjoyed it and found it to be very enlightening. I love learning and growing on my spiritual journey through life, so this book was a great read.

In the section, “About the Author,” Paulo Coelho once said that, “Following your dream is like learning a foreign language; you will make mistakes but you will get there in the end.” I could really relate to that statement since I’ve now been living in France for 10 months and I have not yet learned the language as quickly as I thought I would. However, I will never give up and I will continue learning and one day, I will speak French.

Learning anything new takes time. It takes time to implement into your daily life, it must be repeated over and over before it becomes a part of you. At that point, each day, you make a choice to live your life in this manner. We continually evolve and the goal is to develop everyday by the choices we make.

I wish you a day filled with lots of love, laughter and joy as you move forward on your quest in finding and living your legend.

With much love,





About I am Alice

If anyone would have asked me three years ago if I had ever considered writing books, I would have promptly answered, "No." Today, it is a very natural feeling to write. I suppose since I enjoy talking so much, and I mean a lot, it should not have surprised me! I love communicating through writing as I feel completely united with my soul and my thoughts flow, often times as well as tears as I am altogether emerged in that feeling, in that moment. Check out the "About Alice" page to find out why I titled this site, "I am Alice" and why, "It Feels Good To Be ME."
