I’ve just had a Big Magic moment, and like a school girl who has just got a boyfriend I had to come running to tell you all. If you don’t already know, Big Magic is a book by Elizabeth Gilbert, where she discusses creativity and its flow within us all. She talks about how ideas work and how creativity functions. How we are ALL creative beings, but that some of us just say YES to the assignment and some say NO.
Well today I felt that familiar buzz similar to the caffeinated feeling after too many lattes and went running. I tried typing but felt like I was going upstream, concentrating on spelling and grammar and so I ditched the electronics and snatched up my journal and pen. I let myself write and write and write and let whatever wanted to come out flow freely. I realized the medium in which I wanted to express my creativity mattered. I don’t know if that is in the book or not, I’m not there yet, but that was my experience. My Magic flows from me through a pen to paper more efficiently, more authentically than from me to the keyboard to the document.
What can I say, I’ve always been a bit old fashioned.
But what happened today is nothing short of magic. I am excited for all the fun things that will be coming OUR way to Mikala’s Musings, so I hope you are too, dear reader. That is of course, as long as I don’t let ego and fear kick me down. But I have faith. I’m not done the book yet. Surely that is in there somewhere? And if not, I have said YES to the task and that, I know, is all the confirmation that the Universe needs.
