I just finished listening to Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. It is a kind of blue print for making big changes in your life, with sections entitled Courage, Enchantment, Permission, Persistence, Trust, and Divinity. I have to say that I enjoyed listening to it. Audible.com has become my regular bedfellow it seems.
But I did swing back and forth between being inspired, jealous, excited about what could be, and fearful that it was too late for me. I try to remind myself that the most important part is to keep writing. Like Gilbert says, "The work wants to be made, and it wants to be made through you."
Get to work on some of your own big magic today.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
