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!

Big Dreams Really Do Come True!

If you love music as much as I do you probably watched American Idol at some point this year. I got hooked the first time I saw Philip Phillips audition. He blew me away, reminding much of Dave Matthews who I am a big fan of. I’d love to hear his rendition of ‘Crash into Me’. Philip has a raw natural talent and stayed true to himself throughout the entire season. A true musician.

I sent him a Facebook message at the beginning of the season telling him I loved his musical expression and I hoped he would go all the way, and low and behold he responded to me with gracious thanks and asked if I write songs. Phil Phillips has shown us that Dreams Really Do Come True! Even really BIG ones!

I watched the season finale and have to admit I had tears rolling down my cheeks along with everyone else who watched this talented young man break down on stage. It must have felt so surreal. His dream came true while being watched by millions of fans and his family was standing right in front of him. Powerful indeed! He walked off stage in tears and headed straight Home where he was embraced by loving proud supportive arms. What a thrill for his parents and relatives! Life may change for Philip but I have a feeling he will remain the same! There is something so special about watching a dream be reached, it inspires all of us to reach for the star!

Dream Big!

Just Awesome! Congratulation Philip! ((((((smile))))) I look forward to watching you grow and unfold, creating music that inspires all of us!

Season finale…

Here is the entire song for those who want to see it in complete form. 😉
