Whilst Eat, Pray, Love inspired legions of women from around the world, to journey if possible around the globe ( or at least delve into an emotional journey in essence to find themselves), Big Magic offers advice more of the creative kind.
Liz believes that when we unleash our creative self, we also unleash our most happiest self! This brings with it a sense of fulfillment and therefore if the mantras and advice in her latest book are followed, it seems that her readers will most certainly be on the road to fulfillment!
Here at FreeAstrology123, we are big fans of Liz Gilbert’s work and have compiled a list of 11 of Liz’s most inspirational quotes from the book!
