For those of you who don't know me, my name is Taryn Louch, but for the purpose of this blog you can call me passionista.
I am an Actress/Singer/Writer/Director/Voice over Artist/Idea Engineer/ Social Butterfly/ Creative Director at CreaTTe/PR Pundit/Party-planning Extraordinaire/ Fashion-loving/ Shoe-obsessed Capricorn; but most of all I'm Passionate.


 Passion is a word flung around casually but how do you define passion? For me, it is the raison d’être, the piece de resistance, the ingredient that ensures the cake does not flop…one dollop of passion added to anything guarantees success.

It's the secret key to unlocking the best possible version of your life; and what a pleasure if you can enjoy the magic this weaves into your life, before your autumn years. 90 percent of people have a job, they go to work and they despise every day they set foot in that office.

Devastating when calculated that an average person spends half of their 24 hour day, 5 days a week at a place they don't like. But who is aiming to be average? It can only lead to the demise of the soul. I'm blessed to do what I love and so I love what I do; and in this organic process, passion stitches success.

Introducing my blog- a platform to explore all the things I'm passionate about, to share my writing, my favourite quotes, my adventures and to inspire you to give your passion purpose and do what you love. Life is too short to do anything for money or status.

Money will always be made, but you cannot put a price on happiness. As someone I used to know once taught me, and this has rung true, find what you want to do, and then find out how you’re going to fund it.

Finance is not all that is necessary when fuelling a dream.


 This is my absolute favourite quote by Maya Angelou, whom I had the pleasure of meeting whilst I was living in New York. This is the mantra by which I try to live. 
"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
She has inspired me for years and I cannot translate into words the incredible honour I felt attending a private soiree in her home.

Picture this, Maya Angelou's triple story multi-coloured home in Harlem, the likes of George Faison,of Firehouse fame,and Saundra Parks for company; and the irrepressible inspiration that is Maya singing "When the saints go marching in."

An unforgettable experience, I was truly at a loss for words (which does NOT happen to me) She is an Icon and living testament to the fact that passion nurtures success. It's no wonder that Oprah is inspired by her.

Till next time, paint every day with passion and reap the rewards of the difference it will make.


 xoxo
passionista

There is nothing I admire more in a person, than a person who speaks their truth. I am happy that our paths have crossed, you remind my soul to smile.
