Can I be Santiago from The Alchemist?

I read this somewhere, “Dreams are wishes with strong determination” and how true is that. We all have dreams. Dreams to achieve success & happiness. Some pursue their dreams like Santiago from The Alchemist. Just as Santiago had to go through so many hurdles to achieve, we all have to too.

These hurdles shape us. Once we cross them, they define us. Most of us fear to cross these hurdles, fearing what will we find on the other side. That’s a mystery for sure but something which pursuers want and hence it’s not a hindrance for them to follow their dreams.

This world knows us by how many bucks we earn. This world is judgemental and one thing is sure that our happiness DOESN’T depend on this world’s verdict of our stature. To be happy we have to earn in our means. Doing things we love & then the work will be in our blood. It’s not that each one of us follows their heart and get into the profession they want to.

Similarly, I am an IT professional. I like the work but my dream profession would be being a librarian. I know it seems crazy but that is what I had in my mind once I saw our college library. It was huge & filled with study books. Only a handful of novels were there.

I want to be a librarian and keep it full with novels & books. I want to read all those books by being there day & night. No need of anyone’s company or any other thing. I wish someone would give me money for reading books I like 😀

Life is a constant struggle and the struggle is on and hope that I can be a librarian for a day. I have started buying books and the count has increased this year more than before. I am not able to read much nowadays, neither blogs or books, but I will start both it all again sooner.

As I was talking to a WP friend yesterday, she said, “Finally, good days are here to stay.” I could not believe less. Good days are here to stay for all. With our dream profession, good days turn into happy & peaceful days too 🙂
