Magic Lessons

“Mothers are the members of society who need to be given the most permission to be able to do the things that ignite their own souls.”

Above is a quote by Elizabeth “Liz” Gilbert. She’s the author of Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, and host of Magic Lessons podcast.

Magic Lessons is easily one of the best podcasts for moms.

At the beginning of every episode, Liz beautifully talks about what “magic lessons” mean to her, “the extra nudge we need when we’re feeling stuck in our creative lives.”

It’s amazing how this podcast enlightens listeners and makes them aware of the importance of creativity and engaging in it, and how “malignant” it is not to.

It talks about fear being the primary hindrance to creative work and discusses procrastination and perfectionism as being forms of fear.

Who knew, right?

Anyway, Dr. Brene Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston and author of four No.1 New York Times Bestsellers, was on the show.

She’s an expert on issues about fear and vulnerability – her TED Talk making it to the top 5 most viewed with over 30 million views!

I can’t seem to stop quoting verbatim because there’s just a lot of meaty stuff here.

So here’s what Dr. Brown said on the show, “If you ask me now what creativity is, it is, for me, the way I share my soul with the world. And without it, I am not okay. And without having access to everyone else’s, we are not okay.”

Nothing could be truer.

People forget how essential creativity is to human life – to the human soul – to moms!

Listening to this podcast gave me that desire to actually start writing whatever it is that I’ve been putting off for weeks now. So, thanks Magic Lessons!

It’s definitely food for the soul and fuel for your hidden or forgotten passions.

Before you turn away and claim that you have no creative bone in your body, research has already proven you wrong.

There’s no such thing as a non-creative person. Everyone has creativity in them; you just need to put it to use.

And yes, I shamelessly got that from the podcast as well.

So moms, tap into your inner creativity today and don’t lose your sanity! Learn how with this podcast.
