Read | Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Image taken from House of Wend - check her review!
My goodness. You must read this book. If you are a creative, or want to be, Liz Gilbert has some amazingly profound insights on what is needed for this lifestyle: courage, enchantment, permission, persistence, trust, divinity.
I love her style; the way she personifies emotions like fear revealing just how powerful these feelings can be. Yet, when she does this, we learn we can interact with our emotions. They don't have to be in control. Gilbert's voice is like an old friend (it helps that I read Eat, Pray, Love on a bus traveling from Barcelona to Madrid post break up with my first love. I know... #relevant). Her writing is an invitation. It's honest, real, vulnerable. I find it gives me permission to do the same. If you're looking for big magic in your life, well, here ya go!
What I love:
Filled with empowering inspiration
Keep in mind:
A little bit of woo woo, which isn't everybody's cup of tea.
Gilbert doesn't need you to love her writing (also what I love).
