I wrote a blog post in the beginning of my journey here titled "I Have a Dream".

This time I want to talk about all of my dreams. I feel that this is a monumental period in my life, making changes that will directly impact my future. I feel a deep passion for our oceans, you know that by now. But my passion and love for our oceans travels far beyond the desire to partake in a few campaigns. This is a cause I want to dedicate my life to. I want nothing more than to wake each morning, spending every day being a voice for those who have none. This extends from our oceans, to our forests, to animals in factory farms, fur farms...etc. I find that my tolerance for a "normal" life dictated by society is fading fast.

Since traveling to Taiji I have seriously evaluated my life. I'm 21 years old. I left my college education twice due to a lack of fulfillment. It is not an issue of irresponsibility. This is a burning desire in my heart, one that I cannot quell by trying to fit into Society's norms'. I have volunteered many times, each experience providing more fulfillment for my soul than the last. I cannot lead a normal life. It is not my purpose here. I have known for three years that this is what I am meant to do. I have the strength and desire to change this world for the better, and anything less would cause me to deteriorate, becoming a shell of my former self. I want to dedicate my time to helping heal our earth. I am not worried about feeling discomfort, fear, pain, or anxiety. It is but a small portion of what our oceans, forests, and animals are currently faced with.

I am considering leaving my employment and diving into a world of excitement, beauty, and adventure. I can only deny my heart for so long. Monotonous living does not suit me. As you also know, I am a firm believer in the law of attraction and the power of love. I have witnessed the transformation of my life within these past few months due to the power of positive thought and affirmations. I'm ready to take my life to the next level. I am ready to live in abundance, allowing me to dedicate all of my time to what really matters.

I am returning to Taiji. I do not know yet how it is going to unfold. I have received many generous donations and feel deep gratitude daily for those who care about this world as much as I. I would not be able to do this without you. The list of followers, activists, donations, commenters, and passionate, selfless individuals is too long to list here.

I'm working on manifesting ideas, situations, money, people, and everything else I require to spend my life doing what few have the desire to do, spend each and every day not living for themselves, but for those who's lives are cut short by greed.

It is my hope that you will join me in this exciting journey of growth, love, pain, passion that we call life.

For the Oceans,


  1. Beautifully written Tarah. From someone who, at 44, is still seeking the fulfillment you seem to have found, I applaud you and encourage you to continue following your heart. Life isn't about material gain, as you surely know. The rewards you will get from life will come from listening to your heart. My best wishes to you.

  2. Amazing blog Tarah! Such an inspiration for people like me! :)

  3. Thank you both! I feel that I must follow my heart, for I cannot deny it.

  4. I read in Alissa's blog about you. Didn't think the donations would amount to anything significant, let alone pay for the trip to Japan. I'm glad you can do what you really want to do.
