I've been connecting with today's guest, Jeanette LeBlanc online for years and it was beyond a pleasure to finally get to drop in with her for an interview. If you visit her website, jeanetteleblanc.com, what she does is clear as day. It says, "I help people find their words (and use them really well)."
And you know how much I love putting words to good use!!
So here's what we got into...
Jeanette's big truth was about dismantling the myth that we heal in isolation, which led us into a conversation about cycles of healing and how repeating lessons isn't necessarily negative.
She shared the origin story of how she's evolved and iterated from being a good girl, preacher's daughter with a science degree to a mommy blogger, birth doula, photographer and the rebellious writer and guide that she is now.
And of course we talked about our stories: the difference between the stories we tell, finding the truths in our stories, how our stories connect and heal us, and how the creative process of storytelling doesn't have to be a big thing that requires a microphone, platform or even an audience.
Enjoy this one and share it up - stories and words are universal things we all have access to, there's a lot of power to be mined here.
