Since 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.
