Tara Wilding is a girl that was born in 1959. Some would say that makes me a middle aged woman. Middle age is really a silly concept to me because we never know what tomorrow will bring. I feel it’s very important to live in the moment and enjoy the uniqueness of each one.
Life is all about choices.
The choices we make every day will affect every aspect of our lives. I have made some really good choices and some really bad ones. I have loved a lot, hurt a lot, laughed & cried a lot; and at times learned much more than I should know.
I have learned one of the most important gifts I can give and receive is forgiveness. I have been blessed with a wonderful family of choice, friends and companions that have been with me through thick and thin. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and I would not be who I am without Him!
I am an overcomer and a survivor. I have had and overcome lots of health issues. At 20, I was told my back was so bad that I would be lucky if I could bend over by age 25. When I was in my late 20’s, I was diagnosed with Cancer and told I would be dead in a couple months or a couple years. At 29, I found out I had MS (Multiple Sclerosis).When I was 30, I married a man I really thought I would happily spend the rest of my life with. Things changed, and after 21 years the man I married was no longer the man I was married to. You might have guessed it; we’re getting a divorce. And it seems to be taking forever. But through it all, I have learned so much about myself and the importance of loving my life and being me. Nothing more, nothing less; just me.
Even as a little girl I was interested in the effect of smells. I was comforted by the smell of my Dad’s pipe & cigars. I felt I had accomplished something when I smelled the sweet smell of my horse’s clean mane & tail. A feeling of peace still overwhelms me when I smell a salt water beach at low tide. Life enhancing smells – now referred to as Aromatherapy – continue to interest and intrigue me.
It’s my goal to live life in the moment and enjoy every part of my life!
