This month’s theme, “Stories We Grew up with”, expands our appreciation of who we have become as a result of the stories we have been told and the ones we have told ourselves growing up. We look at how these stories have impacted our behavior, our thoughts, our dreams, Ultimately, I believe everyone not only has a story but also is a story.
Author David Denborough, Ph.D. writes “Who we are and what we do are influenced by the stories that we tell ourselves…There are many different events in our lives, but only some of them get formed into the storylines of our identities. Whatever storyline we have about our lives makes a difference in who we are and how we act.”
Join my guest Ashwani Jain whose family told him that he was good enough, that he was loved, that he was a survivor. These stories became his own while he survived cancer as a preteen and his first job rejection from the White House. I said the first because he was offered a second. You will love his spirit and his story.

You are not alone.
You are not your circumstances.
You have everything within you to live a purpose-filled life.
