Tuesdays with Taraleigh: Channel Your Inner Trey Anastasio

It’s Tuesday which means it’s Tuesdays with (me) Taraleigh where I show you a glimpse into my wild and whacky world. This week I share how to surrender to the flow like Trey Anastasio did during night two of the Santa Clara Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary show and how you can too!

In the comments section share with the world a goal that you have and then write “I surrender” after it.

…and so it is! Continue reading

I missed Zach Deputy because I didn’t listen to the voices in my head

I didn’t follow my intuition and because of it I missed rocking out to my soul brother Zach Deputy last night.


Epic photo cred Karl McWheter

 Two days ago as I was getting dressed I picked out the shoes I wanted to wear. I heard a soft quiet voice that said, “Put on socks.” I ignored it because I thought my outfit would look better without the socks. As I took the two mile trek into town I started feel blisters on my pinky toes developing at a rapid rate. I ignored the pain for as long as I could. I took my shoes off and continued the rest of the journey barefoot.

Tuesdays with Taraleigh: I’m running against Bernie Sanders

It’s Tuesday and that means that you are about to catch a glimpse into my wild and whacky world. One thing that happened is that I was nominated for a Seven Daysie award for the best social media personality. Woohoo! The funniest part about that is that one of my opponents is Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders and he endorsed me. OK maybe I made that part up, but I had to because of this…

I’m just a sparkly speck flying through space on a ball of dirt, sand and glitter

Tuesday was my 38th birthday! I survived another year which is no easy feat. I’m so proud of myself. On the evening of my birthday I invited some friends over. I asked everyone to write down a wish for themselves and a wish for the world. One of the women at the party said, “You better add a wish for you too!”



After everyone completed writing down what they wished for we headed outside. Mother nature was on our side. It had rained all day (aka leaking awesome Continue reading

Tuesdays with Taraleigh: The Key to Life

On this day 38 years ago I was given the best gift of all…the gift of life! This Tuesday I’m going to share with you something amazing that was discovered by the amazing humans that attended the Soul Tribe Sleepover I co-hosted last week. A bunch of soul-centered entrepreneurs who wanted to incubate some awesome came to Vermont and not only got clear on what they wanted to offer to the world, but they figured out the key to life too and for my birthday I want to share it with you.

Watch the video to find out what it is.

I have another birthday request. Please leave a comment sharing one golden nugget of wisdom someone shared with you in the comments section below. Thank you and I’m inspired already. Continue reading

Tuesdays with Taraleigh and Madaila

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means! I’m inviting you to catch a glimpse into my wild and wacky world. Right now the Discover Jazz Festival is happening in Burlington.

On Friday night I fell in love with a band called Madaila and I have a feeling after watching my video, you will fall in love with them too.

Check it!

My body is just a meat suit that I wear so people can see me coming

Can you tell which one is me?


If you guessed the little one who is feet shorter than all of the girls around her you are right. My entire life I was cute little Tara. Sometimes I liked it and other times I hated it. I was often treated like a baby because I looked like one. I fed into it and found myself playing that part. It worked for me at the time until it didn’t.

When I was a cheerleader in middle school, I tried out for the competition team. Honestly, I was one of the best on the team and my acrobatic skills were incredible. I remember sitting in the lunch room after the try-outs assuming  Continue reading

I was mean to some really awesome people

I saw so many people who had the kind of life and business I desired. I used to feel jealous and even found myself saying mean things about those people to make myself feel better. It never worked and felt really yucky.

What did work was seeing what it was that I was jealous of because whatever it was is what I was capable of cultivating within myself. Instead of staying stuck in the yuck I was able to create movement and allow my amazing life to happen.

Now when I see awesome people I feel inspired and motivated by their magic. How did I do it?  Continue reading

Tuesdays with Taraleigh: What happens after the camera captures the perfect photo

I try to be as real as possible on social media. My life isn’t always picture perfect. I fall down. I’m bratty sometimes. I think I look ugly and can’t find anything to wear that feels good at times.

I’m a human being and sometimes I just need a hug, love and support.

And sometimes I post pictures of me doing yoga poses that look perfect and beautiful. In this video I share what really happened after the camera captured the photo.

Can you relate? Share what has happened for you after the camera captures the perfect photo in the comments below.
