We love ending the week with one of our #MiniMeditations – every Friday afternoon, we reveal an image from Mini Meditations on Joyby Adam & Lisa Murphy or Mini Meditations on Creativityby Tillie Walden. It’s such a nice, positive way to draw a line under the work week (at least for those of us on a 9 to 5)! The amazing artistry of these illustrations speaks for itself… but what about the thinkers, writers and artists who gave us these inspiring quotes? We think the meaning goes even deeper when you know the human behind the thought. Recently, we profiled Brené Brown, and now we’re looking at Elizabeth Gilbert.
