“It’s you + creativity + fear.” -Elizabeth Gilbert

What I appreciated most from Big Magic was the part on fear. I feel that everybody can make great things. However, at times fear tries to hold you back. This is what gets in the way. You may be afraid as to what other people think of you.

I think this book opened my eyes a little bit and allowed me to say: You know what, I am just going to go for it and put fear aside. I acknowledge that fear is there but you need to have the courage to get past that level of fear and move forward in creating great art. You have to be willing to let your passions and ideas come forth and make a move on them instead of rejecting them.

I want to continue writing as it is something that excites me. I want to work on that art every day. This is what makes me happy and that is what is most important. We are brought up in school with the emphasis that if you work hard you’ll be happy. But what if you don’t like what you are working hard on. I think it’s important to find your creativity and work on that everyday which will create happiness along the way.
