I read Eat, Pray, Love (2007) when I was a student but I didn’t know Elizabeth Gilbert till I read Big Magic (2016). It is such an inspiring and entertaining read. The book talks about the stages of being creative and the struggle to keep up with the challenges of life and art. I loved the book.
The book is divided into 6 parts: Courage, Enchantment, Permission, Persistence, Trust, and Divinity. And my favorite part is Persistence where Gilbert explains how she struggled with time but still persistently took out small slots out from her busy schedule to work on her creative projects.
How she managed to continue to follow her passion for writing and how pursuing one’s passion can relieve them from the dreadful burden of being who they are. Even if the escape windows are short and uptight, they’re worth it.
