How often are you creating the largest version of yourself?
Today’s Navigate the Chaos question is “How often do you remind yourself to make choices that will allow you to be the largest version of yourself?”
People that navigate the chaos have learned to make difficult choices that will allow them to develop their potential.
Author Julia Alvarez wrote "Each of us will have to make the choices that allow us to be the largest versions of ourselves." Born on March 27, 1950, in New York City, Alvarez was raised in the Dominican Republic, but had to leave the country when she was 10 years old; her family had supported an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow dictator Rafael Trujillo, and then fled to Brooklyn, New York.
Struggling at first to adapt to her new home, Alvarez graduated from Middlebury College in 1971, and went on to earn a master's degree from Syracuse University in 1975. The theme of being caught between two cultures can be found throughout Alvarez's poetry and fiction work.
She explored this cultural divide in her first novel, How the García Girls Lost Their Accents, published in 1991, which garnered critical and commercial success.
