Elizabeth Gilbert on Instagram: “Thank you to @aprilhadley for making this lovely image of my "letter to fear" from BIG MAGIC. Whenever the creative process begins, expect that fear will come along with you on the journey. That's perfectly normal, and totally fine. Just don't let it drive, ok? #bigmagic”
People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you're fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly.
