This month’s theme, “Stories We Grew up with,” expands our appreciation of who we have become due to the stories we have been told and the ones we have told ourselves growing up. We look at how these stories have impacted our thoughts, our dreams; ultimately, I believe everyone has a story and is a story.
Author Richard Kearney says in his book On Stories, “telling stories is as basic to human beings as eating. More so, in fact, for a while, food makes us live; stories are what make our lives worth living.”
Isak Dinesen says, “To be a person is to have a story to tell. —”
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.”
