Divine Awakening: Entering the Chrysalis.

  By Tanya Tiger How do you explain to the people in your life that you’re not the same person you were all the years they have known you? How do we explain this “you” that has gone through such a dramatic transformation in a way that will help the ones we love understand? How do we describe the new sensations, emotions, and zest for life that we’ve discovered along the way? Do we even have to explain all of this? Does anyone even care or are they too wrapped up in their own stuff? I’m not entirely sure that I even...

The Eye of the Storm: There is Beauty in the Breakdown.

  By Tanya Tiger You can dance in a hurricane But only if you’re standing in the eye ~Brandi Carlile I’m not going to tell you that it’s all going to be okay… To tell you that you will never face a storm would be a lie. To pretend they do not exist would only leave you open to being blindsided by their harsh reality. To tell you to hide away in shelters built around your heart, to remain steely and aloof, would only serve to cut you off from all that makes life worth it. Shelters never survive...

It Took a Visit From Death to Teach Me How to Live.

  By Tanya Tiger   I want to be inspired, to live out loud and run naked in the moonlight. I want to wear flowers in my hair and sing at the top of my lungs—not caring who can hear me. I want to feel confident and brave in my own skin. I want to feel like I matter, like I made a difference somewhere along the way. Isn’t that what life is all about? Isn’t life about touching lives, bringing love, inspiring others and making the most out of the time we are given since none of us...

Grief, Gratitude & Putting One Foot in Front of the Other: For Krissy & Lily.

  By Tanya Tiger I wanted to write something deeply profound, something earth-shatteringly beautiful and deep. I wanted to write about the beautiful comings and goings of life and everything for which we can be thankful. I sit, at a bit of a loss, on how to proceed. Many of you already know that one year, three-and-a-half months ago, my baby girl Kristin was called back to that other place where souls are born. Some call it Heaven. Some have no name for it. No matter what you choose to call it, I believe it is where we begin...

Living in a Black & White World When You’re a Neon Rainbow of Change.

  By Tanya Tiger   As you read this feel free to substitute rainbows, sprinkles, sparkles and dancing with whatever floats your boat. I am not “normal.” Anyone who really knows me knows this to be true. I own my freakiness. I exalt my unique brand of me-ness. There is no other way I would rather be. I am a free-thinker—a self-reliant seeker of wisdom and truth. And, I am not alone. I know that there are many others out there who feel the same. There exists an army of dreamers in the world who dare to test the...
