Episode 35: How to Create Big Magic with Books + Sisterhood
Books. Best Friends. Big Magic. Becoming our Best Selves.
Yes, everything above is possible and we are living proof of it. We came together as two best friends on a mission, wanting to share the message of how to live our truth and dare to change, as well as the many mistakes, frustrations, and moments of happiness that we experience along the way.
And we also came together as two best friends who share a love for reading books, except there’s one BIG elephant in the room, we weren’t finishing our books. This pattern of buying books, talking about books, switching to another book, and never finishing the original book went on for quite some time (like a really long time).
After years of half-assing our personal development through books, we finally cracked the code. If we commit to becoming our best selves together, there’s no room for excuses, distractions, and starting an entirely new book altogether. We discovered there’s something *magical* and motivating when you know that your fellow sister is reading right beside you.
And now we want to share this same experience with you (click here to come join us)!
Fast forward to now, we’re both on average reading one book (sometimes two) per month and able to unpack, digest, and apply the book’s lesson to our everyday lives. It’s not the easiest work and it most certainly isn’t as glamorous as Sunday brunch with mimosas, but we never said this living our truth and daring to change thing would be easy or glamorous.
We simply knew it would be worth it!
In today’s episode, we unpack all of this and more. We share how our love for reading began (think books like Harry Potter), the transition from fiction to self-help/personal development and where that left us, how the idea for the book club came to be, why we chose the book Big Magic, and how this book has helped both of us become our best, most creative selves.
And of course, we cover all the details about the Truth + Dare Book Club Challenge that begins on Monday, November 20th! So if you’re curious how this whole book club evolution began, now’s your chance to better understand our intention and most importantly, make the commitment to finish your books with us!
