In this episode, Jess sits down with writer, poet, and artist Megan Baca. Though at the beginning of the conversation, they start as strangers, they soon discover so many similarities about their creative passions, the emotional trauma of childhood bullying, and learning how to “reparent” yourself later in life.
Megan candidly shares her struggles to fit into a world that didn’t appear ready to accept her for her extroverted, talkative, unapologetic self. She and Jess connect over what it means to finally be “seen” by a loving partner, and Megan reveals a powerful story concerning the birth of her third daughter. Most importantly, she and Jess talk at length about how the deaths of loved ones have positively influenced their search for The Good Life and how it is never too late to passionately run in the direction of our dreams.
