Last Night…

My daughter and I were solo last night so we tucked into bed and got cozy to watch one of our favourite girl-shows, Being Erica’. It seems every time we decide to watch it, it completely parallels my life…the Universe has a way of reminding me that I am not alone. Last nights episode was about finding the perfect man! (funny…right?) Lesson learned, next weeks post will be a reflection of that show!

Last night I had soft little girl feet touching mine, an arm wrapped around me, lights were off and all I could see my was daughters beautiful face illuminated by her iPod while she read me little quotes, we giggled together for hours! It may have just been one of those “I guess ya had to be there” moments in time but I wasn’t ready to post about my s-i-t-u-a-t-i-o-n right now so here goes! My daughter has such a quirky great sense of haha! Part of the fun was hearing her dialog and 2 cents after each quote.

Here are a few quote from Teen-Posts

“The awkward moment when your internets down and you realize your life sucks”

“The awkward moment when you want to scare someone but they take too long to come out”

“When I text someone in the same room as me and I stare at them until they get it”

“I consider myself as a crayon, I may not be your favourite colour…but one day you will need me to complete your picture”

“My teacher pointed to me with his ruler and said “at the other end of this ruler there is an idiot” I got detention after asking “which end”

“Sitting in class wondering who would die if one of the fans fell down”

“Changing your entire message because you don’t know how to spell one word”

“If I had a British agent I’d never shut up”

Stay connected to your kids, it’s important to see what they’re into, and fun to be a kid again along side of them!

Enjoy your Monday everyone!



Girlfriends at My Side ~

I am on a path of Enlightenment just like the Goddess Arya Tara who we chose to represent us here on Tara Cronica over 3 years ago. I am growing and unfolding along the way, learning life lessons, making memories and expanding my circle of friends. I believe I have evolved as a woman while writing what’s on my mind each week. Writing is my passion and it has also been therapeutic. Women communicate and learn from speaking to, and listening to, other women, it’s what we do.

I have had so many laughs and shed many tears along the way. One thing that has been consistent are the girlfriends who stand at my side day and night, 24/7. Men have come and gone but the beautiful nurturing souls who I am blessed to say are my girlfriends stand strong at my side. I need my girlfriends, it’s that simple. I love the male energy as you all know, great men inspire me to be a better me.

Life would not be the same without my beautiful soul sisters!

My Mom shared this link with me (she is more than my Mom she is also my girlfriend) and it rung so true to me I needed to share it with you. Thanks Mom I love you!  xo

They Teach it at Stanford;

“In an evening class at Stanford the last lecture was on the mind-body connection – the relationship between stress and disease. The speaker (head of psychiatry at Stanford) said, among other thing, that one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. At first everyone laughed, but he was serious. Women connect with each other differently and provide support systems that help each other to deal with stress and difficult life experiences. Physcially this quality ‘girlfriend time’ helps to create more serotonin – a neurotransmitter that helps combat depression and can create a general feeling of well being. Women share feelings whereas men often form relationships around activities. We share from our souls with our sisters/mothers, and evidently that is very GOOD for our health. He said that spending time with a friend is just as important to our general health as jogging or working out at a gym. (Hallelujah to that!) There’s a tendency to think that when we are ‘exercising’ we are doing something good for our bodies, but when we are hanging out with friends, we are wasting our time and should be more productively engaged – not true! (I know not ONE of my girlfriends agrees with that statement!) In fact, he said that failure to create and maintain quality personal relationships with other humans is as dangerous to our physical health as smoking!”

So every time you grab a java with friends or chat over a glass of wine, keep in mind it’s good for your well being! It soothes the soul!

This does not mean I am not going to go on and on about the male energy, that will never change! I love my friends male and female!

Svaha Girlfriends…and Man-friends!
