The Quotidian, December 8, 2010 ~ “Do What Brings You Joy”

“Do what brings you joy.” ~ SARK

SARK is an American author and transformational speaker. Her legal name is Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy (SARK). A survivor of childhood abuse and incest, SARK is triumphant! I can’t think of a more exuberant, joyful artist and writer.

SARK has just published her 16th book, Glad No Matter What, Transforming Loss and Change into Gift and Opportunity (2010).

  1. While that’s not always possible, it’s still something to strive for.

    Write on!

    • Hi Carolyn,

      I believe we are happiest when we are able to do what brings us joy. I am inclined to believe that a component of this is service to others, especially service on behalf of the most vulnerable within our communities on all levels, local to global.

      In a way, doing what brings us joy represents a profound personal freedom.

      I wish you joy in what you do – in your writing and in raising your children.

      Blessings, Andy
