Book Discussion : Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Dreams & Inspiration
Obviously the whole book was about inspiration and encouraging people to chase their dreams. I couldn’t help but think how that was making me think about ideas I have with the blog and with my business but for everyone it probably meant something else. Like someone may have wanted to write their own book, start painting again, start a farm, whatever it is!! What was your thing that you kept thinking about as she talked about chasing dreams?! I mean you don’t have to tell us your amazing patent pending idea but curious what your dreams are and what idea is in your head that you would love to see come to life!
I think right now all of my crazy ideas are kind of in motion – I dreamt about Barefoot Blonde Hair for a VERY long time so the fact that it is here is so fulfilling for me. BUT I do have crazy ideas coming to my mind a lot, that I sometimes have to push out because like I said I have my BIG IDEA already movin and groovin and I cannot take on any more. But other little things like I think David should make a digital keto recipe book, don’t you?! He has the bessst recipes and comes up with the best low carb meals so that was one idea I kept having. Others were just things I would love to do with our company or things I want to do later in life.. like in 10 years I would love to home school my kids and travel for a year. Anyways, tell me your dreams big or small!
Things I loved about Big Magic :
As overkill as it was, I loved when she was talking about acknowledging ideas and either accepting or dismissing them. I felt this way when reading “The Art of Tidying Up” when she talked about talking to her shoes daily and thanking them – thinking how I wouldn’t ever talk to my shoes. So I felt the same a little when she talked about ideas in the same way and talking to them. BUT THEN I FOUND MYSELF DOING IT LOL. I legit got an idea and was like “yep that’s a good idea. thanks. but nope.” The reason I like this is because David and I are DREAMERS. I have said this before but we are probably too spontaneous sooo we get a lot of ideas and I think its important for me to take on ideas one at a time and either be a very serious YES or a very serious NO. I don’t like having things that take up space in my brain when I just need to be focusing on my current project.
How do you get inspired?
things and share what inspired us!
