Book Review / Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert


Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years. Gilbert offers 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

Having read Eat Pray Love and Committed quote a while ago now, I have always wanted to pick up more by this author and have been meaning to pick this up for quite some time now.  I am always looking for books that give inspiration, whether that be creatively or organisation-wise.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  Not only did it give me inspiration to stop living inside the box all the time but it made me reevaluate most of what I do presently - some of which is fine but some I have certainly tweaked and I am so much happier now.  I hadn't realised that this would make a big difference, but it has. 

I would highly recommend this book for both those who want to live more creatively but also for those who maybe like to stay inside the box for most of time but want to inject a little bit of creatively here and there.  It certainly makes a difference.
