Hey, everybody, Jen Hatmaker here, your host of the For the Love Podcast. Welcome to the show, I’m delighted to have you.
Right now, if you’ve been listening along, we are in a series called For the Love of Reconnecting, which felt like the exact way to start 2021. After a year of disconnection in every possible way, what could it look like for us to begin the hard but important work of reconnecting?
Today we’re talking about something that honestly, you may just kind of want to say, “You know what? No thank you. Not after this year. Not yet.” Because we’re talking about reconnecting with our dreams, our visions for our lives. Dare I even say the A word–ambition? And I understand that could hit you in multiple ways, that it feels like a hard thing to think about.
But on the other hand, what better time than now, right? What a better time than now, as we are beginning to enjoy the promise of emerging, and we’ve had all this time to think, we’ve had all this time to imagine, to innovate, to dream. Why not now? I think we need to reconnect with our dreams, frankly, in order to be the people we want to be, but that we have to be.
So I am absolutely thrilled to have a beautiful human on the show today. We have Priyanka Chopra Jonas, because she’s literally the definition of fulfilled dreams. We’re going to talk a little bit about her journey to get to where she is, her level of hard work and confidence is a testament to what happens when your ideas and your work combine to create something wonderful.
So of course you already know Priyanka, but let me fill you in on her. Priyanka is a multi award-winning actress and producer, and one of the most recognized personalities in the world. She’s a former Miss World winner, and she has appeared in more than 60 films. You might remember that in 2015, she made history as the first Indian-born actor to lead an American network TV series when she starred in ABC’s Quantico. Obviously, in addition to acting and producing, Priyanka has done incredible work with UNICEF for more than a decade. And today she lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Nick Jonas, and their three dogs.
And she has struck out in a whole new frontier yet again because she’s just written a beautiful memoir called Unfinished, and it’s a delight to read and we’re going to talk about it today. You’re going to really enjoy her.
Priyanka said some really wise and sage things today that I am going to think about for the rest of the week. I appreciated her perspective, and she changed my mind on a couple things in a wonderful way. You’re going to love it. I am absolutely pleased to welcome to the show, the very wonderful, Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
