Feature: Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Today we feature Big Magic, written by the incomparable heart-warmer / spirit-challenger, Elizabeth Gilbert! We banter all about:
The magical jewels hidden in each of us, made real by becoming a parent
How to comfortably co-exist with fear
Our desire to separate our genius (or lack thereof) from our sense of self and worth
The super power that is the “arrogance of belonging”
A way to think of parenting as a devotional path to stay true to
How to embrace the grand paradox of our work being both everything and nothing
Looking at your lot in life as a tasty shit sandwich
The ways in which we can meet our destiny with good cheer and curiosity instead of martyrdom
The ever-powerful reminder to fucking LIGHTEN UP. Seriously. Or not seriously, rather.
