Hey guys! What have you been reading lately?
For me, it’s Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. Check out its Goodreads page for more information.
I was a huge fan of Elizabeth Gilbert’s earlier book, Eat, Pray, Love. Eating, spirituality, living soulfully while trotting across the globe. Ugh. If only I had the money to do all those! So when her book Big Magic was released, and I heard it was all about creativity? Of course I HAD To get my own copy.
Upon reading, I easily understood most of the negative stuff I’ve heard about the book. it certainly is not for everyone. It has this “New Age” vibe that a lot of people might get easily scared of or…you know, totally weirded out. I believe in the book though, and everything you might even refer to as kooky. With the genius. That ideas are sentient beings. In fact, I’ve already believed all these things even before reading the book so all I did was basically just say “yes, yes, yes!” the whole time I was reading it.
Needless to say, I enjoyed this book immensely. It teaches you that creativity can take on different forms, and that you don’t need to lead an exclusively artsy life to live creatively. Sometimes, all you really need is the courage to put a little more soulfulness into your life.
By the way, I am also at Goodreads and a (semi)active member of the book group, The Perks Of Being A Book Addict. Check out my profile to see my complete book lists.
