About Tara Erickson
Hear It From Me
For years, I have helped myself in writing my emotions on paper and learned that it served as a helpful role to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. I finally decided to own that role and began intentionally writing more about my passions, my thoughts, and this little thing we call life.
I founded Talkin Tara ...The Blog, with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind. The goal is to hopefully be someone people can relate to and even seek out when dealing with life, loss, love and fun.
I am an Actor who loves to make people laugh and cry. My youtube channel highlights my big, bold, whacky side, while my writing tends to tap into more emotion.
I am an only child who was raised by my Mom and Mi Abuelita, who have both passed away within the last 7 years. In losing my biggest supporters and closest family I have learned ways to cope in the midst of feeling totally alone. I have written about grief and all the feelings that run alongside death and luckily have been able to help people through it with my words.
Grief changes you in so many ways, but so does love, happiness, time with loved ones, breakups, jobs, marriage, kids, dreams... the list goes on. Life is a mixed bag of candy, full of surprises that we can never be prepared for. I am willing to take that ride and share it. I hope you'll join me.
