Shauna Ahern, author of Enough: Notes from a Woman Who Has Finally Found It talks about what it took to leave her successful persona as the Gluten-Free Girl to write a memoir that is candid, compelling, and rooted in community. Shauna, whose blogs and books on gluten-free living made her a star on the social media landscape, has found real community on her rural island outside of Seattle. (My island as well!) We chat about what “enough” now means to her.
Highlights from the episode:
What “enough” means. What it was like for Shauna to let go of her identity as The Gluten-Free Girl, with the intense demands it made on her time and family life. The joy Shauna has discovered living in an island community. Why community matters, especially in an era of social isolation. How Shauna hopes the book and the ideas in “Enough” will help others. Why “enoughness” is important, not just for us but for the environment.
