WRITE YOUR OWN NARRATIVE By Mike Tiemann
If I’m being honest, sometimes I feel like
I’m getting typecast. I can start to feel like the narrative of my life
is being written FOR me. It’s like I’ve been put in a box, made up of

specialization go unchecked? What if we define them so specifically that
they don’t feel the freedom to explore new facets of who they
are . . . or who they could be? . . .
