I stumbled across this video as I was perusing TED archives, and found it so relatable and thought-provoking that I wanted to share it with you all this week. Yes, I realize I didn’t write this, but I feel like TED talks are valuable sources of inspiration and ideas. Since my blog is somewhat geared toward this niche (and because I’ve exhausted every creative cell in my brain this past weekend), I don’t feel like posting this talk is entirely cheating.
Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love) talks about the creative process and why it’s okay not to feel like “a genius” all the time. I urge anyone, but especially those who love to write and create, to watch this talk.
