I have recently finished reading Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.  It is a wonderful story about Santiago's mission to find his Personal Legend.   Through the northern part of Africa, Santiago faces many choices about whether to continue on his journey or settle for the circumstances of the present as good as they may seem.   Through the desert he finds inner peace, true love, and self respect.   

This book has caused me to ponder daily interactions and events knowing that somethings are brought into our lives that we can choose take the step forward, or we can choose to ignore the opportunity and stay in the present wishing we had a different option.   We may not always know where the next step will lead, or what is to come in the future, but if we keep taking a step forward, moving to make ourselves better, we just may find our own treasure.
