This is who I am…take it or leave it!

I have been questioning my writing style lately, which is really just my opinion but it is also more often than not what’s going on in my life. Not all writers express their true life through their written word, it depends on what type of writing you do. Musicians write lyrics that we can all relate to at some point in our lives, romance novelists take us away from our day to day to live in bliss for a moment suspended in time, bloggers write about what interests them and the list goes on.

I wear my heart on my sleeve and if you look at most of my posts, they reflect just that. Sometimes you may have to read between the lines, I certainly wouldn’t throw anyone under the bus but lately I’ve been seriously considering changing how open I have become. Too late? Better late than never? hmmmm. My quandary!

I’ve been on my own for awhile now, and have considered my writing therapeutic in the process. I have always had plenty of time between relationships in my past and believe its necessary to redefine who you have become before you put yourself back out there. I have recognized some profound changes in who I am and what I think of myself. That alone I think has been worth it!

When you meet someone who you find intriguing, you naturally want to savour the process and take things slow in getting to know each other. Unless of course it’s just about sex, then who really cares about their opinion on…anything! (I’ve not met that guy yet! lol) You don’t just want to put everything out there in one big pile. That is one of the best parts of meeting someone, letting a little bit out each time you’re together. The anticipation of making you wait elevates the excitement!

When I meet someone new the conversation eventually leads to “What do you do?” I suppose I could leave out the blogger part and just divulge that I am a ‘Silpada Rep’ but more often than not without even thinking Tara Cronica rolls off my tongue and I can’t get it back. Too much information is not always a good thing when you want to date someone.

When I started the whole writing process I decided to be an open book with my life, I had nothing to lose. It felt right. Say it out loud and hope for the best! That all seemed fine and dandy when I didn’t care what anyone in particular thought of me, not that I reeeeeally care now but 10% of me kinda does.

Tara Cronica has been my therapeutic outlet, like running but with words. I write, or run, chew on the words or thoughts for a while to be sure their mine, and I usually come up with a solution to my quandary! My solution this time…continue being true to myself, use my authentic voice to share my opinions and thoughts about life and love, don’t create circumstances that go against myself and be open to change.

Bonnie’s Svaha Spirit Series The Power of Vulnerability was the icing on the cake for making me decide to continue down the path I started on…

I will continue to let myself be seen, love with my whole heart, practise gratitude and joy and know without a doubt that I am enough! This is who I am, take it or leave it! 🙂

I have recently joined my friend Anna Ceraldi-Zin and company on a venture that will capture history and make it available for the next generation. No, I am not leaving Tara Cronica, I just can’t resist working along side inspiring, confident, independent women! I can do it all, just watch me!

The professional, broadcast quality HD documentaries are similar to those on The Biography Channel but with your history as the one featured!

I felt honoured that Anna even thought of me when this opportunity was created. To give you a little ‘history’ on how Anna and I are connected, Bonnie and I went to high school with Anna, we were and still are best friends! We have stayed in touch over the years, Anna mostly living back East having pursued a Journalism career which was extremely successful and has made her life very interesting to say the least! Anna has always been know to tell a colourful, captivating story so this venture suits who she is to a ‘T’! Anna is a very motivated and driven woman whom I have admired and been inspired by since we met. Her independence and strong will have made her not only a great Mother and role model for her daughter, but has shown that you can have both a family and follow your dreams balancing the two along the way! Anna is a life long friend whom I look forward to joining on this interesting journey. I am very excited to start out on yet another path in life with someone I admire and respect as much as her.
