Summary from Goodreads:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Fair Play comes an inspirational guide for setting new personal goals, rediscovering your interests, cultivating creativity, and reclaiming your Unicorn Space.

With her acclaimed New York Times bestseller (and Reese's Book Club pick) Fair Play, Eve Rodsky began a national conversation about greater equality on the home front. But she soon realized that even when the domestic workload becomes more balanced, people still report something missing in their lives--that is, unless they create and prioritize time for activities that not only fill their calendars but also unleash their creativity.

Rodsky calls this vital time Unicorn Space--the active and open pursuit of creative self-expression in any form that makes you uniquely YOU. To help readers embrace all the unlikely, surprising, and delightful places where their own Unicorn Space may be found, she speaks with trail blazers, thought leaders, academics, and countless real people who have discovered theirs everywhere--from activism to artistic endeavors to second careers.

Rodsky reveals what researchers already know: Creativity is not optional. It's essential. Though most of us do need to remind ourselves how (and where) to find it. With her trademark mix of research based, how-to advice and big-picture inspirational thinking, Rodsky shows you a clear path to reclaim your permission to have fun, manifest your own Unicorn Space in an already too-busy life, and unleash your special gifts and undiscovered talents into the world.

I read self-help books every so often to keep in the mindset of taking care of myself, an important task that I've finally learned. Everyone needs a few tips and tricks in their back pocket, and I've found this book to be full of just that. 

Rodsky talks about the creative space and its impact on our mindset and daily lives. Creativity is not optional. It drives our thoughts and helps propel us through the day, even when we aren't aware of it. The suggestions by the author in this book help you give yourself permission to be creative and not look on it as child's play.

Favorite Quote:

"Make the pursuit of an authentic life story your living legacy."

I gave this book 4 stars out of 5 since it was a great read. I wouldn't put it on my favorites list, but definitely one that I can pull info from to put in my back pocket.

Finding Your Unicorn Space has reminded me that my creativity from my childhood isn't dead and should be a part of my everyday life.
