It’s been a whopping 11 weeks since I last posted which for one thing, seems like it’s only been two weeks and another, that’s not cool! I’ve been up to my eyeballs in work and travel with my day job and I’m finally feeling like I can breathe a little.
Excited to share some things we’ve been working on around the house, plans for the upcoming kitchen remodel, upcoming travel and more. For now though, I wanted to share a great, quick read that’s a light, summer reading book.
When I read Elizabeth Gilbert’s famous book “Eat, Pray, Love” I was in college and I never finished it. I couldn’t get in to it, her voice didn’t speak to me and I think I just wasn’t in the right time of my life to resonate with that book. I’ve still never read it.
Her new book, however, seemed intriguing to me. It’s called “Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear” and is focused on living life creatively and not being afraid of that creativity. It’s something that really spoke to me.
I’m a very creative person, my brain is always running, always thinking. But there are times when I question that creativity, is it worth it, is it a good use of time, am I over thinking everything, am I wasting my time?
After reading “Big Magic” I realized that all those questions I have don’t matter. We can be creative without it needing to define us. You don’t have to make a career out of creativity. It can be a hobby. As long as it makes you happy and never feels like a chore.
It was a great book, broken up into sections with many different stories of her past, people she’s met, creative adventures and more. I think I might just give “Eat, Pray, Love” another shot!
