by Christal Fuentes

Before I introduce this phenomenal woman right here, I have to tell you a funny story.

You ready?

Ok, my grandma is linked to my amazon account which means, every book I order to my kindle she also sees and reads. Imagine, 100+ books on kindle and 70% of them she reads!

It’s even cuter because not only is she 83 years old, English is also not her first language but she absolutely loves to read and learn!

I ordered Tara Mackey’s book before it officially released because I was super intrigued by her message, and her blog is absolutely OUT OF THIS WORLD. Jam packed with knowledge and insight. Before I left to London in May for my first Art of Relationships event, I saw the book hit my kindle and got so excited to read it on the way back from my travels.

Got on the plane, opened up the book, and it opened to a page near the end of the book. WHAT?! It said I only had 7 minutes left in the book.

I was so confused! Did I read it in my sleep?

Then I remembered, OH… Grandma. She wasted no time once that book hit our kindle library to open this book and immerse herself. In fact, she read it in less than a week.

Fast forward, I get home from my travels and I go to grandma’s house to visit and eat good food (DUH)!

I asked her if she liked the book WILD Habits and that opened a 20 minute conversation of how much she admired Tara’s story. She was spilling ALLLL the deets that I actually had to stop her because I wanted experience her story on my own.

That week I opened the book, and in the first 20 pages, I was bawling. I actually have never had an emotional response to a book like I had to WILD Habits. Although our stories differ, I could still feel (on a cellular level) what she experienced. Weird how that happens right?

There’s not enough to say about the invaluable lessons I got from her book. I was hooked from the start.

The transparency she shows into some of the darkest times of her life and the REAL truth about coming out on the other side is beyond refreshing. It’s not always rainbows and butterflies and unlike the normal advice you typically get with personal stories, you feel like she is actually in the trenches with you guiding you step by step. Turning your attention to things you may not have even thought about but makes a WORLD of difference. I cried, laughed and felt lighter knowing that things I couldn’t articulate before, she did it for me. The practices and habits are now things I implement in my everyday life and it has made a world of difference, and through today’s discussion, you now can too!

Before we go into what we discussed in today’s episode, I’d like to officially announce that if things didn’t work out with Andrew, I’m pretty sure she’d be my wifey!

You know when you meet someone and you have an instant connection. The moment my BFF Pam and I walked out to meet Tara, we vibed INSTANTLY. Tara has a very certain, relaxed and loving presence. She is also HYSTERICAL. I love someone who can make fun of themselves. ESPECIALLY someone as brilliant as her.
