A Chat with Robin Lee, Creatrix of The Babe Collective & BABE Magazine. {Interview}

  By Tanya Tiger   We could all use a spark, every now and then, to motivate us and to help us become better versions of ourselves. Sometimes we find the inner-drive and strength to light our own fuse. Sometimes it takes a powerhouse like Robin Lee to step into our lives and show us how to ignite the fire that is waiting to burn within. When I was asked by The Tattooed Buddha to interview Robin, I hesitated but only for a moment. As soon as I perused the The Babe Collective (TBC) website, I couldn’t wait to...

Defining Compassion: One Life at a Time.

By Tanya Tiger There is a deep and abiding desire in the hearts of most people to make this world a better place. When we allow ourselves to get still and quiet we can hear that small, yet persistent, whisper from within saying, “something isn’t right here.” Though we may try to distract ourselves from that truth by watching television, or becoming engaged in gossip, or keeping up with what’s trendy, we cannot silence that nagging echo, resonating in our core, “something isn’t right here.” It can be difficult to accept that the world we live in is falling...

What is it, within us, that gives us the strength to put one foot in front of the other when all we want to do some days is curl up and fade away? I am often told that I am strong. I hear the words, “I don’t think I could survive if I lost a child!” or “Bless you for being so strong!” The truth is, yes… I am...

Feeling The Calling.

  By Tanya Tiger I had always wondered what people experienced when they said that they had a “calling” or had been “called by God” (or any other divine entity for that matter). I would try and imagine if it was like a phone call from a friend, “Hey, ya, it’s me… you know the Big Guy/Gal in charge…I’m just calling to let you know that your life is never going to be the same. From here on out you’re going to be a nun/priest/priestess/monk, etc., okay…” or something along those lines. I really couldn’t fathom what a “calling”...
