BIG MAGIC

I’ve just finished this book. If you loved EAT PRAY LOVE (like me), or if you’re on your journey to discovery, or fluttering through creativity you have to read this. I bought it as my holiday read but didn’t start until I got back. It was a really good, easy read that I managed to finish it in 2days, I literally couldn’t put it down. It definitely re-ignited my creative spark but I feel a lot calmer about things now after reading this, like “don’t worry, just follow the magic”. I’ve got my favourite page book marked, where Liz talks about choosing curiosity:

I poked about for a while in my everyday chores – writing emails, shopping for socks, resolving small emergencies, sending out birthday cards. I took care of the orderly business of life. As time ticked by and an impasioned idea still had not ignited me, I didn’t panic. Instead, I did what I have done so many times before: I turned my attention away from passion and towards curiosity.

I asked myself, Is there anything you’re interested in right now, Liz?

Anything?

Even a tiny bit?

Not how mundane or small?

It turned out there was… 

This is one of the best piece of advice I have come across recently. So don’t worry if you’ve not found your passion, follow your curiosity step by step and it may well just lead you to a new discovery that will become your passion! #BigMagic
