Break Free

God knows that we are all artists of life. One day, he gives us a hammer with which to make sculptures, another day he gives us brushes and paints with which to make picture, or paper and a pencil to write with. But you cannot make a painting with a hammer, or a sculpture with a paint brush. Therefore, however difficult it may be, I must accept today’s small blessings, even if they seem like curses because I am suffering and it’s a beautiful day, the sun is shining, and the children are singing in the street. This is the only way I will manage to leave my pain behind and rebuild my life. 

-Hope it gives you a little inspiration. Quoted from Paulo Coelho’s book, “The Zahir”

    The Zahir is one of my favorite books. Read it many years ago and pretty much every page highlighted.
    In retrospective now I think it was too idealistic. Don’t you think?

      It was about pure passions, in my opinion, A journey of finding one self.
      The end was not satisfying enough.
      His every book portraits very much a similar character, losing and remerging self.
