~ You’ll be into it if: you’re lacking a little creativity ~
Elizabeth Gilbert is the woman who brought us Eat, Pray, Love and is solely responsible for my goal of traveling the world, eating only pasta and doing yoga. I’m very ambitious. Big Magic is another of her books and it’s really bloody cool, it talks about creativity in a way I’d never thought about before. I used to categorise myself as someone who just wasn’t all that creative – this book calls bullshit on that, saying that everyone can be creative and in fact, everyone SHOULD be. It doesn’t matter how good you are at painting – or how bad – creativity in any form is vital in leading a happier life. When an idea comes around, grab it, that’s the Big Magic.
