There’s a current fascination with one’s lineage that thanks to technology and scientific research can be traced relatively easily. Connecting these ancestral dots is appealing – after all, who isn’t interested in the question of where they come from. Finding out you have 20% Hispanic roots when Mom and Dad are both British born is surprising and revealing. Surprising because such a connection is not expected; revealing because our connection to others is global. The elements that make up “you” are not unique to you since they originate with other human beings in your lineage. What makes you unique is the combination of these ancestral elements – they have to have existed for you to be who you are today. And this is a good thing.
To your Happiness,
