As Eckhart Tolle often says, you have a life. Everything else, your worries, all your experienced sufferings are simply your life's situation. 

How we see our life and our situation can color how we live and experience life. It is sometimes hard to imagine that no matter what, we are the author of our own stories: As a palliative care physician and certified life coach, let me help remind you that if things can go wrong, they can also go right. 

Join me in my podcast as we visit people's lives and stories of how we can make our own life a great one, one chapter at a time. 

Write Your Best Chapter is a podcast about life, death and everything in between

We are in the third week of Iran's uprising. 

After last week's episode, I had so many requests from my audience asking "What can we do?". So I reached out to a brilliant Iranian American Scientist who has been an inspiration to many people around the world. 

My guest today is Dr. Firouz Naderi. He held many executive positions during his 36 years at NASA's robotic space missions leading to becoiong NASA's program manager for Mars exploration in 2000. He received NASA's Distinguished Service Medal in 2005 which is considered its highest award. 

After retiring from his position, he remains an active advocate for the Iranian-American dispora formerly having served on the board of directors of Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian American (PAAIA).

I reached out to him to share his thoughts about what is happening in Iran, what are some actionable items listeners can put in practice. 

In other news, Shervin Hajipour, the singer of "Baraye" song that I played on the podcast has been released on bond. There is a collective movement to nominate his song for Grammy's under the "best song for social change".
