Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
by Elizabeth Gilbert

Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy. 

Words are not enough to describe the beauty and fulfillment I’ve received upon reading this book. Magical words won’t suffice how much I’ve learned about life and moving on.

I’ve previously read (and watched) Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love a long time ago and loved it. This is my second time reading one of her books and I’m blown away by the various lessons and pieces of advice that slowly found their way to my life.

I especially love this one: “Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.”

This book is absolutely amazing. Something that will help lift your spirits up, lift you up, and get you started and moving to the right direction. Fear won’t stand a chance.
