Sarah Brooks: We Are All Worthy Of Great Things
“I feel like I truly untangled myself from professional identity in those four weeks away from work. I was really able to like, I don’t know, friends would ask me what I was going to do. They were like, Oh, are you traveling? Are you doing anything like really awesome? And I was like, not really, I just want to read and just listen to music and go for walks and just reset. And so I did a lot of things that were very, like sensory, like cooking or listening to music being outside. And it just really made me remember, and I know, this is gonna sound cheesy, but we really are all worthy of great things just because we are existing on this earth. You don’t need to do anything, we don’t need to have, you know, this fancy job title or do anything to be worthy of that. So it was just nice to remind myself, I should celebrate myself just because I exist.”– Sarah Brooks
Sarah Brooks is here to remind us to show ourselves grace and remember that we’re human beings, not human doings. She’s driven by her love for music and is on an ever evolving journey of personal growth.
At least, that’s how I would describe Sarah.
When I asked Sarah how she would answer the question “who are you”, we chatted about separating our professional work from our identities, the epiphanies she discovered during her end of year month long sabbatical from her business, and the significance of the Netflix documentary My Octopus Teacher.
