I have definitely gotten more used to the idea of being able to give up all my physical possessions. I don't think that I would miss the stuff that I would leave behind, and I will be happy.
Live Life to the Fullest and Enjoy Reading!!

I easily get bored with constant things in my life and I always opt for a challenge, something dazzling and eye-opening. Since I've began pursuing my dream, I had to cut all the negative people, walk away from stability and comfort; dip into pain, sweat and tears. Honestly, this is the happiest I've ever been. I am not afraid to die tomorrow for I am living my dreams.

I heart will bring me back to my family and friends. I have been very lucky in my life to have such great people around me who love and care about me.
I could give up anything in my life to stay close to them.

I’d be too frightened of losing my pension or leaving people who need me.

I would like to think I would. That theme of giving up everything to follow your heart is truly appealing to me and one of the things I loved about the book. As Belle said "I want much more than this provincial life," and I feel that way pretty much every day. I think we would all be happier and more fulfilled if we took more risks.

The Alchemist inspires me to recognize my own legend that is to read books and give an honest and constructive reviews about them. I enjoy reading books so i can say i have finally found my legend.

I have always spent my money on experiences over things, so I have less fear of walking away. In my 20's I travelled the world solo. But now I have a family of my own I wouldn't leave them behind (for long!).
