M.C Yogi ~ Give Love

Some of the best things in life are free to give, a smile, a hug, a compliment, support, but most of all Love! You all know by now my posts are primarily about LOVE or Taboo topics! It’s just who I am! It made me smile from the deepest part of my heart and describes my attitude about love perfectly! I think life truly is about giving love to everyone around you, unconditionally! I love the message, tune, graphics and lyrics of this song. M.C Yogi is awesome! I found lyrical beauty and wanted to help spread the luuuuv.

Distracted once again my post meant for today ‘Navigating the Mine Fields of Dating’ just didn’t make it, I will post it next Wed because today I wanted to Give Love Away with M.C Yogi! I liked it so much I added it to my Tracy’s Taratory! You will be humming this all day with a smile on your face!

M.C Yogi I give you my love!

What’s Happening Out There?

It seems more often than not when I watch the News I feel sad and wonder what’s happening out there? Beautiful young girls are being beaten to death in broad daylight, gang raped while others just standing by and watch, boys are bullied at school and forced to fight so some jackass can post the video on YouTube, there is political unrest around the world, and it seems innocent lives are being lost everywhere you look. Human beings are coming unglued. There are those who are creating negative behaviour and those who are reacting to it. The human race needs help and guidance desperately! Its craziness that is so disturbing at times it makes you wonder if its even safe to bring a child into this world! At times our future seems anything but bright, but I think we have to stay focused on the good that is all around us. If you look hard enough, it’s there, just hard to see some days!

When I sit and think about all the negative things going on in the world I think about what my part in all this is? Where do I fit in? What am I doing to create the change that is needed to stop the mayhem? There’s always hope, you can never give up or you lose before you even begin. Even one person can create enough change to make a difference!

When people visit Tara Cronica for the first time they often wonder what it is we’re selling. Its made me question why I’m doing this, more than once. What are we giving those who drop by for a visit? We sell our line of Jewelry and T-shirts, but the bulk of our site is our written word. What’s that worth? I use my voice because I feel passionate about sharing my life with others hoping to help in some way with theirs. I try to live by example of what you can achieve through perseverance and hard work. My hope when you leave Tara Cronica is that you don’t feel alone. There’s always someone out there who can relate. I hope to put a smile on your face, show you a different point of view and stir you somehow inside, which makes you use your voice in return. We are not just selling Jewelry and Tee’s, they have our message of Inspiration which I think is really important in the world today, you can’t put a price on Inspiration!

We created this space in the blogosphere to “Find Lyrical Beauty in Everyday Happenings” where we try to focus our attention on the upside of ‘everyday happenings’. We want you to leave inspired, so you can carry on your day and inspire others, and come back more grounded having creating positive change. We are trying to create a feeling, a warm sense of belonging, a safe place in a world that is trying desperately to change for the good. We are real women sharing real stories. We all have our own reasons for walking down this path, for me it just feels right. It’s a way of giving back, joining a social network to make my difference, as small as it may be.

I happen to think we are part of a very important movement which is picking up momentum as we speak! What’s happening in the world is not all negative, there is a lot of positive as well and that is what we are trying to share with you!

Thoughts become things….chose the good ones!

Finding Lyrical Beauty in…Change ~

When I created May’s header and theme ‘Finding Lyrical Beauty in… Change’, it was meant to reflect all the changes that are happening in my life right now. I have never feared change. Change is a fresh start, a new beginning which moves you forward in life. It allows room for growth. Whether change was a new bedroom growing up after another move, a new friend or pair of shoes, I never looked at what I had before as a loss but what I gained with each change.

Tara Cronica is going to start undergoing some Change. We are unfolding and expanding all the time. Our first change will start today!

I will be sharing my voice on Wednesday and Thursday. Bonnie will grace the pages on Friday and Saturday, and Jacquie will get personal on Monday and Tuesday!  Sunday will remain the same with our Svaha Spirit Series which we all add our voice to. We have decided to each take two consecutive days which will give each of us a little more freedom. We can change our post or leave it for you an extra day!

Tara Cronica is one of my passions and I can’t tell you how much positive energy it has added to my life, I hope you feel the same! So here’s to Tara Cronica and Finding Lyrical Beauty in …Change.

Do you have a Voice?

Your VoiceSince Bonnie, Jacquie and I started out on this journey of finding lyrical beauty in everyday happenings, something has happened to me.  I have always had a voice that I was proud of, but I think now I have developed a much louder one.

There is a difference between a loud voice and a loud mouth.  Lets get that straight right from the start.  I’m not a fan of anyone who has a loud mouth.  I think there is a time and place for everyone to use their God given voice but there is no time or place for a loud mouth.

I like to think I use my voice for others who perhaps haven’t become aware of theirs yet.  The fear of being  judged or singled out has never prevented me from voicing my opinion.  It is NEVER a good idea to make a decision based on fear!  Our kids need to see that by using our voices (not mouths) we can create positive change.  I shall speak loud and clear for them until they develop a voice of their own.

I’ve noticed lately that I’ve needed my voice more than usual.  A full moon, perhaps.   I’ve never been one to sit and watch others blaze a trail,  preferring to be at the front of the group leading with a huge machete, doing work, representing as best I can.

It is so important for the women and men of this world to start to speak up for themselves.  If you haven’t yet, you need to.  Change is inspired by exercising our voice.  Speak up, be passionate and express yourself with integrity.  By instigating change we can start a movement in a positive direction that will effect the planet as we all know it.  What I have learned in my time spent here is that truly with every action there is a reaction.

I want to know what you’ve done to cause a reaction in your circle and if it’s inspiring we’ll post it on Tara Cronica.  We can make a difference, and when we bond together and use our voices as a group, (in a southern drawl)  well, there’s nothing we can’t do.  It’s time, ladies and gentlemen, for each and everyone of us to use the beautiful, strong, loud, articulate voices that we hear so clearly in our heads.
