Best Thing I Read Last Week

“The stories we tell about ourselves become facets of our identity. They reveal our unique complexity. All at once they say something about our friends, family, and culture. They say something about why we live as we do from year to year…

The power of these untold personal stories is that …  they can loop silently in our minds without anyone, sometimes even ourselves, knowing about them. The stories are often found hiding … in the gaps between what we plan to do and what we actually do, or between what happens and what we tell people about what happens.”

– Dr. Meg Jay, PhD from her book The Defining Decade
