Rewriting your story with DNA, Two Mindys and Country music
Here are some resources I used during my presentation in case you want to revisit them.
Inside out - Identity islands
This movie does such a great job of explaining how different memories create experiences that form our identity and personality. You can stop the video at the 1:13 mark.
Noa Baum - Storytelling
Watch from 9:39 to 10:23 about how storytelling allows us to see another point of view without the fuss of needing to reject it or adopt it.
Inside Out - more islands
They explain that as we get older our identities become more complicated.
Noa Baum - on living with paradox
Watch from 14:30 - 15:28 to hear Noa's thoughts on how broadening our view of stories can help bring change.
Inside Out - Family Island Restored
Start at 2:57. Try to watch this with your genetic genealogy glasses on. When you learn something unexpected, we look back over our memories searching for some clue or sign. We miss our old, untainted memories. But that doesn't mean they have to disappear.
