Title: The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion
Author: Elle Luna
I always thought I am done with discovering who I am and what I my passion is, but reading this book (well, seeing the cover and it’s back cover page) made me rethink of what I really want to do and made me rethink about how my life has been going.
Every book is a dream come true – and this book is one of the dreams of the author. This is also an art wrapped in a cover page with inspirational stories and words on it. It’s an easy read and some pages would only have a few words, written in bold and font 48 size just to emphasize the message it wants to give its readers. It also lingers – make you want to think about your life and encourages solitude and meditation for you to follow your bliss.
This book is perfect for visual learner like me who would really enjoy books with pictures and arts embedded with it. Here’s the favorite treasure I get to find in this book – a quote from Vincent Van Gogh.
“What am I on the eyes of the most people – a nonentity. An eccentric or an unpleasant person – somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then – even if that were absolutely true, then I should like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. – Vincent Van Gogh”
I don’t usually read self-help books, but the title of “Should and Must” spoke to a personal dilemma I was having at the time it came out. To some extent, the book helped me clarify my thinking. It gave me encouragement for some of my decisions and forced me to reconsider others.
