We all have our own story. No – one – is the same. It begins with our childhood, the way we were raised – some more fortunate than others – those early life experiences that build our foundation, those sweet memories that are tucked in a warm place at the bottom of our hearts – of summer vacations spent at the Jersey shore, those pancake stacked mornings around the breakfast table with your family of eight, waking up to the sound of the birds chirping and your mother gliding through the pool water kicking effortlessly as she did her morning laps. However, with those sweet memories come the difficult battles we must face, obstacles to overcome, the moments we learned we must live life without a loved one, the times where we felt lost, took that detour, or stayed on course through the storm, only to find ourselves again. We all have a story, our own "serendipitous twists of fate" if you will, that brought us to where we stand today —searching for more.
