Episode 100.

Elizabeth Gilbert.

And my 31st birthday.

These are three things that are all happening today on The Lively Show, and I’m pinching myself to make sure this isn’t just a dream….

…. A lovely dream that I cannot wait to share with you!

Today we’re talking with worldwide bestselling author, Elizabeth Gilbert – of Big Magic, and Eat Pray Love fame – about a wide range of topics including creativity, the fetishization of passion, the magic of curiosity, and the importance of epic doses of self-compassion.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to have a more compassionate + creative life, career, and relationship with themselves.
