Big Magic

This may seem like one of the oddest second posts to do. I mean yeah, this blog will focus highly on clothes, beauty and body positivity. At some point. But I first wanted to speak to you about creativity. This idea of us being creative individuals sits very deep with me. I personally feel like this concept partially underpins who we are as people. Shapes us even. Everyone has a creative capacity and it’s up to us if we deliver our own innovations out into the world. Let’s take blogging for example. Most of us don’t have to do it, but we do it anyway. Why? Because we enjoy it. It allows us to release our inner thoughts, helps us to understand our own feelings and project them for everyone to see. It allows us to creative something original and of value through our own style of self-expression. I study creativity as a part of my course at university, in a slightly different context. But it got me thinking, what about creativity in the individual? How do we begin to even express who we are as people when we live in a world where there is so negativity? Don’t get me wrong, there is so much good, but it’s hard to take something you have created and put it out there on a platform. The fear of rejection, believing you are not worthy to be seen are only a few of the reasons we choose not to express ourselves. 

Which is when I discovered this book. Big Magic: Creativity Living Beyond Fear (Elizabeth Gilbert).

I haven’t even read it to the end yet, but the need to talk to you about it was way too strong. I’m not going to go into too much depth. I’m literally just going to list the different title parts of the book actually: Courage, Enhancement, Permission, Persistence, Trust and Divinity. 

Six words that can literally change everything. 

Having the courage, the permission from yourself and the world, the persistence to go forward and make a stand, the trust in yourself and the world, will bring you to your personal sense of divinity. And who can argue with that outcome?

So if you’re scared or confused about moving forward in life. Take a look at this book and trust yourself enough to learn your self-worth and creative abilities and get ready for your next chapter. Because life’s next chapter won’t wait for you.

Love ya, Chuck x x x
