I have to admit, I was duped by this book. I was expecting a fictional tale like Eat, Pray, Love, that would encourage me to always go for what I desired in life. Instead I got an out and out, self-help book. It's okay though... I liked it!
Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert is all about finding the inner-You! It's about seeking what your heart truly longs for then hot to g about making it yours. Broken down into six sections: Courage, Enchantment, Permission, Persistence, Trust and Divinity, you're equipped to, as she explains how to "bring forth the hidden treasure within you." Nothing wrong with that, yeah?
What I love most is how she encourages you to not go about taking on loans to attend universities but to bravely explore on your own, making your experiences your teacher instead. She also suggests you do what you want, regardless of what it may be, in order to be happy doing that thing instead of trying to be famous or rich. Don't do it for money but for the love and experience of it all.
I liked this book because it reads as though Ms. Gilbert is sitting with me, sharing first hand. She's open and honest. Her words are soft and encouraging and not like a therapist telling you about life. I think looking towards life, chucking away the fears and doling what I'd love is a great way to make some Big Magic in my life. Take a peek! 📚
