Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

#MicroblogMondays - An Introduction

Hey there, I’m Tara a.k.a Geochick, and this is my blog.

I’ve been blogging anonymously for more than 10 years through adoption, infertility grief, parenting and most recently the path of therapy and personal growth. This has been a safe space for me to unload into the ether all the shit I was trying to control and keep out of my real life. I was supposed to hold it together and put my best face forward because who wants to listen to a lonely and angry and sad person? That…didn’t really work and trying to keep myself small manifested as an empty shell of a human. I ended up being nothing except angry to the outside world. It showed up in my life in countless ways, in lost friendships, in hating myself for not knowing what I want or knowing how to parent, in keeping myself from applying for supervisor positions, in issues at work, and in relying on medication to get myself to a 6/10 and hold generally steady.

So, here I am…taking a risk, sharing my voice and inviting everyone into my little online world. Here’s where explore what it means to be me and all the messy steps that go along with it.
