“Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.”
– Big Magic, Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert
I adored this book. (It’s creativity and spirituality so I was always going to love it..) It’s a wise and powerful reminder to live a creative life despite your fears. Packed with gorgeous uplifting stories, it does make you want to get up and start creating immediately. Gilbert’s unique and mystical ways of interpreting how inspiration comes about made my soul smile.
“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”
“You’re not required to save the world with your creativity. Your art not only doesn’t have to be original, in other words, it also doesn’t have to be important.”
