Megan was born and raised in Michigan. Her upbringing was far from typical. She grew up with a father in prison and a family with enough trauma to last a lifetime. She battled with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. When she was 16 she started self-harming, self-medicating, and actively trying to take her own life. After a few failed suicide attempts she landed in extensive and long-term treatment facilities that ultimately saved her life. Tune in for this interview into her story and some thoughts on how to help combat the tidal wave of suicides in America.
Today’s story is about a woman’s heartbreaking beautiful journey. At first blush, it’s hard to see how someone could reframe a non-operable brain tumor wrapped around the brain stem, the paralysis of the right side of her face, and on-going headaches, pain, and pressure as holding any beauty, but today we’ll find out how Jodi Orgill Brown does just that.

We all know fear. We’ve come up short as the fear of rejection stopped us from being vulnerable with someone, or stopped us from creating a relationship, or stopped us from sharing ourselves or an idea. We’ve known the fear of failure as we’ve contemplated doing something risky and then done an about-face as the wash of “what-if-it doesn’t-work” engulfs us. Fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of rejection are internally generated. Join me today for a discussion and a few stories on why choosing fear keeps us small and pushing past it moves us forward toward our best life stories.
