Book Review On Big Magic By Elizabeth Gilbert (X-rated Version)

Feb 13, 2017

 

Getting Down & Dirty with Elizabeth Gilbert!

 

THE SECRET TO CREATING “BIG MAGIC” IS TO BE A LITTLE NAUGHTY!

 Big Magic – Creative Living Beyond Fear, is a self-help book without it feeling like a self-help book. It’s not your normal “How To…type self-help book!”

There is no – this is how you do it! But rather, this is how I’ve had MY affair. This is how it worked for me.

I’ve read many a self-help book over the years but nothing as eloquent or riveting as this.

Her words slowly tantalize you like an expert lover, taking their time to delight you.

To tease you.

You beg for more.

More. More.

You don’t want it to stop!

And when you close the book, you let out a big sigh…

 

Moorishly  rich in the personal and the universal, Elizabeth’s wisdom and unique ideas are generously shared, without fear! Without expecting anything in return, like the ultimate lover!

There’s no reverting back to safe positions in Elizabeth’s book.

Nope!

There’s no rehashing of other ideas here folks.

She pushes buttons, she makes you think about your own creative life simply by sharing hers.

Warts and all! (Perhaps not the right expression to use in this case!)

 

“Curiosity is the truth and the way of creative living”

Oh so true!

When you love something you will do it.

Oh so true!

 

FOR THE PERFECTIONISTS AND PROCRASTINATORS OUT THERE (LIKE ME), BIG MAGIC IS LIFE-CHANGING. WE ALL KNOW WHAT WE HAVE TO DO, DON’T WE? SO WHY DON’T WE DO IT. 

Because like the “first time” – we are scared of the unknown.

We’re don’t want to feel pain.

What will others think or say!

And then when we’re seasoned we can get stuck and bored with all those good, old positions!

But creative living gets better with time. It’s not the quantity but the quality of the love affair with your creativity!

 

CURIOSITY, EXPERIMENTATION, DESIRE, – THEY ARE THE KEYS TO…

BIG MAGIC!

 “Have a love affair with your Creativity” Elizabeth says and don’t be attached to the outcome.

Don’t expect anything from the love affair.

Just enjoy it.

  

When I’m really honest with myself I realise I’ve come from a half-hearted approach – I haven’t had a love affair with my writing and the Universe has responded accordingly.

So, I’m going to follow Elizabeth’s example and I am now going to get down and get dirty and have a really wicked, naughty, obscene love affair with my creativity.

 I’m going to do things I’ve never done before!

 I’m going to raise the roof with my screams of delight!

Who cares what anyone thinks!

My new F-word will be FUN!

 I’m going to JUST DO IT!

Regardless of the outcome!

 

THANK YOU ELIZABETH FOR INSPIRING ME TO FALL IN LOVE ALL OVER AGAIN!

 
Cheers,
Leeza
