Big Magic

If you follow me at all on social media, you already know I am obsessed with the writing of Elizabeth Gilbert. I devour her books.

I read Eat Pray Love last month but my drive to reread it stemmed from having read Big Magic in January. Guys, I underlined, highlighted and annotated the death out of this book.

It ultimately pushed me to create this blog. I’m going to share some of my many favorite things from the book with you and I hope you get to read it as well!

“As the saying goes: “Argue for your limitations and you get to keep them.” – Page 18

“You didn’t show up ready enough, or fast enough, or openly enough for the idea to take hold within you and complete itself. Therefore, the idea went hunting for a new partner, and somebody else got to make the thing.” – Page 58

“He didn’t quit his day job to follow his dream; he just folded his dream into his everyday life.” – Page 82

She smiled sweetly at everyone and always acted like a total cooperator-but then she shaped her world exactly to her liking while nobody was looking.” – Page 85

These are just a few of my most favorites from the book. If you’ve read it, let me know what you thought.

Live creative,

Jen
