I found today's guest Jessica Ciencin Henriquez through previous guest writer Kayleen Schafer. I took one of her writing classes and got to know her while I was her student. I admired the way she moved through the world and knew I wanted to invite her on the podcast. She has a very creative, confident, and nurturing quality about her and is a very magnetic person.

Her calm confidence is contagious and it makes me want to be around her. Jessica's personal essays and narrative journalism have appeared in the New York Times’ Modern Love column, Self Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue and Time Magazine among many others. She is the author of the forthcoming memoir: If You Loved Me You Would Know.

In this conversation, I try to squeeze out every last ounce of wisdom and creative inspiration I could from her. We talked about where she got her confidence (she was homeschooled), the nurturing habits and boundaries she lives by, how motherhood changed her into a more productive writer, her experience with heartbreak including co-parenting and divorce, her year of celibacy,  her writing and editing tips, patience and non-attachment, and how to find your value within rather than externally.
