Day 3

liz gilbert big magic
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

Liz Gilbert‘s Big Magic is a wonderful book for all those creative souls out there who crave making things.

We often celebrate our successes and beat ourselves up for our failures. This quote stood out for me as there is another option: we could celebrate our dedication to our cause no matter what the outcome of it happens to be.

We can focus on how hard we work towards our mission. How often we show up and how consistent we are. Isn’t that something worth acknowledging as the outcome is always uncertain? 🙂

Love both this quote as well as the book. 🙂 ❤


Fancy giving it a go?

Don’t feel pressurised to participate though. 🙂

And anyone else who would like to do this tag. You’re It!


Happy Sunday! 🌞

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. And please do let me know what you think of this quote. 🙂

  1. I really love your choice of quote for today. It’s so true, we need to remind ourselves it’s sticking to our decisions that matter and not whether we succeed or failure. Failure shouldmalways be a learning process, just as much as success. But true success is if we stay the course.

      1. Thank you, but I can’t lay claim to the idea, as it is something I remember being told by, I think, a professor. And it’s stuck with me.

        And I shall have to add Big Magic to my wish list.

    1. It’s this wonderful gentle book that talks about magic surrounding creativity. I started writing again after I finish this book. 🌟 I hope you enjoy it if you read it Kathy, I found it very inspirational and fun as well as Liz’ humour really resonates with me. ❤️

      I love lyrics from that Miley’s song. Her music is full of wisdom. 🎶 💕

  2. Ahh, another great quote! I think it’s easy to forget that it’s our journey that matters the most, and it’s something I still have to actively remind myself of every single day. Lovely post! I enjoyed all of your quotes for this tag! ❤

    1. Thank you. ❤️
      I also need that reminder on a regular basis, you are not alone. I think schooling systems combined with achievement oriented societies probably don’t help…
      Thanks for your kind words. 💕

      1. Agreed! The education system is very flawed (as in, it’s not geared to help different kinds of people succeed, and thus they can’t build confidence), but at least people are starting to become aware of that now.
