When it comes to living joyfully, when is the last time you really pushed yourself outside of your comfort zone, challenged yourself, or explored new ways of finding or creating joy?
We all have our go-to answers for what brings us joy in life, but when we limit ourselves to what’s comfortable and familiar, we risk missing out on experiences that will help us learn, grow, and experience more joy.
Sabrina Must is an inspiring writer and entrepreneur who shares stories of her life –the ups, the downs, and everything in between – and inspires others to do the same. She believes in taking adventures, being intentional about pursuing the things that align with your own unique flavor of joy, and loving and learning as you go.
At age 21, Sabrina’s world was turned upside down when her sister committed suicide. She found herself in the darkest of places, with a level of grief that seemed impossible to overcome.
She found herself turning to writing as a way to navigate through her emotions, and discovered that, as she allowed herself to express her own feelings and her own journey, her life became enriched and expanded in unexpected ways.
Sabrina has since written two books – “Must Girls Love,” and “Living Witnesses: Faces of the Holocaust and Triumph Over Tragedy.” Through these books and her blog, she continues to share her love of writing and her passion for sharing and connecting through the journey of life.
As you listen to this episode, you can’t help but feel a sense of freedom and inspiration to self-evaluate, reach for new heights, and share your truth with those around you. In the words of Marianne Williamson, “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Sabrina reminds us that we each deserve to be happy, to feel fulfilled, and to have joy in every aspect of our lives. We so often get held back by fear or comparison and end up playing small, hiding from struggle, and pushing down our emotions.
The beautiful truth is that joy comes when we not only face our fears, but push beyond them, when we allow ourselves to experience struggle, when we get honest with ourselves, and when we step up to share in authenticity with others.
I invite you to dive into your own story and challenge yourself to discover new opportunities for happiness, growth, and authenticity in your life. Be confident, be brave, and believe that you are worth creating a beautiful, joy filled journey!
