ReadLove joins T.A. Barron for a special blog series to celebrate the upcoming publication of The Wisdom of Merlin: 7 Magical Words for a Meaningful Life. This seven-week countdown campaign will be based on Merlin’s answer to the question, “What is the meaning of life?”
Surprisingly, the answer has only seven words…but they are the most powerful words of all.
Join with us each week as we focus on one of these magical words with supporting content that will help us acknowledge, reflect, practice, and get inspired to embark on a new adventure or live life to its fullest.

Excerpt from The Wisdom of Merlin:
“Think of your life as a story—a story of which you are the author. Using whatever material you have and whatever inspiration you find, make it a story that truly belongs to you…make it the very best story you can.”
“At the end of your days, what you’ll most regret is not what you tried and failed—but what you never tried at all.”
Quotes on Courage:
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Nelson Mandela
