I went live on TikTok earlier this evening. Several friends stopped by and we had such a great conversation about my growth journey.
When I look back on the last year, I see a changed woman. A woman who has grown in so many ways. In fact, I don’t even recognize the woman I see when I look back on videos and photos from a year ago. One of my friends suggested making a year of Tara calendar because the changes are visible from month to month.
I’ve met so many incredible people this year and they’ve been such gifts to me. I love showing them that love and kindness on their birthdays. I want them to see what I see in each of them. Three weeks from Friday is my 43rd birthday. It feels like such a different birthday for me. Two friends called it my “rebirth birthday.” I love that…because it does feel a little like a rebirth.
And as I look forward to this rebirth birthday, I know that I’ll have to have a box of Kleenex at the ready. Tears will fall at the amount of love and kindness my friends show me daily, but especially I believe will show me that day. A rebirth of a woman who finally sees herself as the queen God created her to be.
I offer the world love and kindness in the little acts I do daily. Today my friends commented on how I always support them. Another friend pointed out how I show kindness daily and I don’t even see it. I guess that’s true…I don’t always see it. It feels like such a simple thing to me.
Yet it’s because of the love and kindness they have shown me, that lotus flower has blossomed into who she is today. A woman who is making daily changes. A woman who finally sees her own beauty. Or at least, she’s starting too. A woman who is truly happy.
In the words from my last blog post, I’ve been changed for the good. I am a changed woman who is straightening her crown and spreading love and kindness to the world. Thank You for loving me my friends!
