Roots & Branches: Exploring the Legacy of Family on Our Lives

Apr 2, 2024 | Podcast

Whether we like it or not, we are all products of our upbringing. Whether it’s through our family history, or just our surroundings, we’re shaped by everything that has led us to today. When it comes to following our dream, we’ll always be influenced by our past, by our legacy; but there comes a time when we must also take our own steps toward our dream, taking agency over our own future.


In this episode, we’ll take a look at all of the different experiences and factors that may have an influence on our dream pursuit, all the while realizing that we only have one life, and must take the reins to our own destiny. How can we forge our own path? What must we do to reconcile with our past and our influences? And, how can we seek out support from our loved ones to provide guidance and encouragement along the way?


As you reflect on your family legacy and your own unique calling, consider how you can honor your past while also forging your own path. Embrace the lessons of the past, but also have the courage to pursue your dreams and live authentically.
