When you go on vacation, it's smart to plan ahead, pack accordingly and have enough clothes for a week. And if you were going on a year long trip, you would have to plan and pack even more!

12: Stability vs. Control - Sophia Veneziano

When I think back on my childhood, so much of it takes place in my home. In the living room, kitchen, the backyard, those memories are tied to that stability. My guest, Sophia, didn't have that luxury. She spent most of her childhood being moved from house to house, school to school never knowing where she might end up next. We talk this week about how that affected her then and continues to now.
