Hi, my name is Tara and I would like to be remembered for loving and saving trees 🌳 🌲
Almost a year ago, I started a movement to save 74 trees from removal by the power company SDG&E in a nearby park, including endangered Torrey Pines. I started a petition, I went door to door and spoke to hundreds of neighbors, I handed out thousands of flyers, I went to countless meetings. I called my councilwoman about a dozen times and inundated SDG&E and the city with emails and phone calls daily. Finally, I hired a master arborist to access the trees as a third party. And after many months, SDG&E agreed to come out and go tree by tree with myself, the arborist, the city council and the planning board to explain to us their reasoning behind removal.
After months of back and forth between myself, the city, SDG&E, MAD, the planning board and city council, we managed to save 39 of these gorgeous trees, as well as get SDG&E to agree to a 2-1 tree replacement/beautification project, which I will be on the committee for.
When I started this mission, so many people told me I was crazy. Why go up against a billion dollar a year company, they asked. Who cares about this one park, they wondered. How would I get the city of San Diego, a place I literally only moved to 3 years ago, to hear me? They questioned.
I’ve shared an article in my stories today, kind words that the news recently had to say about these efforts. And here’s what I have to say:

One person is all it takes. If you care about this planet, your environment, your community and your health, show people. Become the example. Let people know how you feel. Let people hear what you’re going through. Vote. Post. Share. Use your voice. If I had never said anything, all 74 trees would already be gone .... last year. I am not from here. I’m from an island, New York. Except no one realizes it is an island because we have cut down all the trees and replaced them with buildings. I grew up in a town called Floral Park. A town with very little to no wildlife and one small park. I could not watch the same thing happen to the Torrey Pines area. Not on my watch.
There is no Planet B. Let’s save this one 🌎❤️🌲🌳

The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.

For the majority of my memorable life, every time I left the house, my purse rattled with pills. Birth control, painkillers, mood stabilizers, anti-depressants, benzos for anxiety, muscle relaxers, and nerve blockers were for daily use. Every other orange bottle was to be opened and used “as needed.” Despite this daily concoction, which was undoubtedly meant to help me, I was trying very hard day in and day out not to admit that somehow I was still hurting and I was still struggling. Big time.
In my case, everything that had happened previously in my life piled up to a daily weightiness. Pills were all I knew. Pharmaceutical medication was all I believed in and the only answer that I had ever learned to tackle my feelings of helplessness.
Most people are shocked to learn that I haven’t taken a single, solitary pharmaceutical drug in almost 8 years. 8. That number is still so insane to me, every time I say it. 8 years of listening to myself. 8 years of taking my health into my own hands. Nearly 8 years of putting my mind and body and good habits first. And yet, it’s still 4 years LESS than the amount of time I was on Rx drugs, which was 11 solid years.

Healing does not happen overnight. It happens in small doses, in tiny moments, in big breaths, and in saying “no” over and over and over again when everyone else says “yes.” Before this, I never knew I could feel better as I aged. I never knew I could get healthier as I got older. But healing happens over time. That’s the miracle.

There are two sides to you. There is the side that tries to attract what you want. And there is the side that simply becomes what you want, and watches it appear. Nurture them both. There is no in-between 💜 #WILDHabits #CuredbyNature

You’re a lot stronger than you feel 🖤

Had such a blast this weekend at the Kwik Brain Masterminds LA Meetup! It was incredible to meet the hundreds of beautiful souls who attended — thank you so much for allowing me to share my story in such an open and honest way with you all. Your questions were so thoughtful and inspiring. It was an honor to share the stage with @jimkwik @alignpodcast @thebettyrocker @thesleepdoctor 🙌🏽🎤🗣🧠 Blessed to have such amazing people in my life!

Thank you @oprahmagazine for sharing this quote of mine from both my books #CuredbyNature and #WILDHabits. Of all the things I’ve ever written, I cannot believe that this quote is what gets the most love, the most shares, the most comments, the most reposts. When the idea first struck me 5 years ago, I figured I was the only one in the world who saw (or cared about) this correlation in kindness. Turns out... the world has been looking for a lot more of it 🙌🏽❤️ Epic letterboard design by @thegoodandgoldco — give her a follow. She’s amazing!

You may have noticed I’ve taken a little social media reprieve the last few weeks. Honestly, it’s been a long time coming.
I’ve been posting about my life since I was 14 years old. I took, edited and uploaded photos and wrote long, passionate stories on my blog nearly every single day for well over half my life. While this social media thing may be new to a lot of people, I feel that it’s been a part of my life and my identity for a long time. I documented everything. I remember a friend telling me on my 21st birthday, “It’s nice to see you with a drink in your hand instead of a camera.” That was over a decade ago. Well before smartphones or Instagram. I took it in, but I didn’t quit. I haven’t quit since.
I didn’t have a reason to. The world has molded itself accordingly. Carefully crafted self portraits turned into selfies. And now. In this world. Documenting everything is an entirely accepted way to act. It’s the norm.

I recognized this year that I never slowed down. And because of that, I thought it was important for me to start doing something new. I took a step back.
I started to focus on living my life and not focus on constantly documenting it. I started to focus more on enjoying myself and less on capturing that enjoyment. I started to focus more on slowing down and less on keeping up.

How has this helped? Well... life is easier. Straight up. Now, when I do document, I tend to keep the most precious moments to myself, for myself.
My focus has shifted: from seeking to document it all, from seeking approval or wondering why I’m anxious every time I post.... to truly just embracing life. I’ve been able to enjoy moments for exactly what they are, and not have the pressure to share every little thing I do.
Honestly, it’s also allowed me to accomplish twice as much. The saying ‘If you see me less, I’m doing more’ is a powerful one that I’ve embraced. I encourage you if you feel any of these things, please just try it. Take a day or two to just enjoy life without social media. If you feel the need to share, stop yourself. Embrace the moment you’re in. Its a WILD habit that I cannot get enough of: living life for you 🙌🏽❤️

Honestly, this birthday felt different than all the last. The past 12 months have been eye opening. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. Triumphant. Terrifying. Gorgeous. Gut wrenching. Glorious. Heart opening. I’ve done everything I vowed I would do. And SO much more.
I adventured. I created. I figured out what I deserved. I overcame. I fought. I won. I grew. There were the outside milestones that were visible, but the silent, inner ones meant the most. The things that can’t be shared in words. Sure, I released new products for my beauty baby @genetixorganic. I released my second book baby #WILDHabits. A million beautiful moments just like this have happened all year. But it was honestly the moments in between, where struggle turned to triumph, where vulnerability turned to strength, that meant the most and made this year the very best yet.
I set my intentions for the new year. This birthday marked a new chapter of sharing what’s deep in my soul. I am SO excited for you guys to see what comes next, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
Cheers to New Years! I’ve turned off comments for this post because I love you all. I know your hearts and your intentions. I don’t need anything. If you want to do something sweet, please donate to your favorite charity. My life and my heart are truly full. #VIRGOSEASON

It’s my coming out party! ❤️🧡💛💚💙🧡💜🌈🌈🌈 I made drinks and got super real with @rupaulson — we talked about my bisexuality 👋🏽, my childhood crushes, how she feels about my skincare line @genetixorganic 💋, our favorite gay couple (this one might surprise you! 🔍😉) and so much more! My sexuality has not always been the easiest thing for me to open up about (what with my strict religious upbringing and all), and yet I’ve never been ashamed of it because it’s always been a part of me. So, this is 100% me guys. If you hang out with me, this is what you get. Just me and you, on the floor belly laughing, trying to make a bird house 😂🙌🏽 I honestly have to say this was one of the most fun days I’ve had! Rachel is one of my favorite people in the universe. She’s hilarious and the show is so funny, smart and insightful. Go watch the full video and check out this amazing @youtube show. By watching @drinkrrp you’re supporting the LGBTQ community! 🌈💜💛❤️💚🧡💙
