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.

Soul Speaks - Session 6

I missed the last Soul Speaks session because of the PSI graduation event. So, it’s been something like 5 weeks since I’ve been in this class. After being through the wringer of depression and travel and so much emotional stuff surfacing in the last month, I wasn’t sure how I’d show up this time. I’m feeling really good right now (8.5/10), yet there’s still uncertainty about how things will land.

Our topic tonight was “Life”.  Ha. Not broad at all…

These phrases that people said about me after speaking threw me for a loop:

  • beautiful, exquisite ancient book of wisdom
  • grounded mesmerizing, knowing, like an oak tree
  • a Greek wise ancient that shares wisdom with people
  • a stately vase, classic, purposeful, strong and beautiful
  • deep deep wisdom, vulnerability and confidence

um…ancient, wisdom??? That’s new. I was getting used to hearing phrases related to movement and fire, but this, the idea of stillness, and being wise, HUH???

During the day, I was flustered at work, didn’t slow down in a meeting and popped off when there wasn’t really an issue, just something to question…then ran out the door in a rush to try to make an appointment on time. I then rushed through my running workout (ugh, not sure why I signed up for a triathlon), and got to Soul Speaks a few minutes late. Grounded is NOT how I was feeling. It’s hilarious to me that they all picked up on something I wasn’t even feeling.
