Would you consider yourself a storyteller? We actually tell stories all the time; tell our loved ones about our day, something that happened to you as a kid, or even about something you’re excited for in the future. What you may not realize, is that storytelling connects you to others. And there is also power to define your own authenticity through your stories. In this episode, I exchange stories with Sarah Elkins and she shares beautiful ways to realign our identities, continue to explore authenticity, and significant ways we can harness connections with others.
