Finding your brand in a world where you're expected to know a little bit of everything and a lot about one thing is tricky. Being by Talia originated as my writers website so people could find my poetry collection and follow me on my writing journey. However, after a few years, this website felt less and less authentic to my writing career and felt more like it was meant to be something more. Until now I couldn't fully figure out what, but I'm happy to inform you all that I have had an epiphany of sorts as to what this site is meant to be. I hope for Being to become a thriving community where people of all walks of live come together to celebrate our unique stories and experiences. Though my name is in the title of the site, Being isn't meant to be about me . Being is meant to become a platform to share and spread real and relatable stories to individuals, families, and communities so that people have the emotional and social foundation they need to be seen and live their lives in their voice. So often I run into people who tell me they could never have a way with words. They find my ability to communicate surprising and unreachable for themselves. And while I would love to bask in my delusions of grandeur I know finding the right words to talk about yourself and your passions simply takes patience and practice. With that I want to welcome you to the new and improved Being. May your heart find the words to tell your story. Don't hesitate to introduce yourself below!
