This is a fantastic book about facing the big 50 and how to come out with a postive attitude and a great feeling about yourself. Part workbook, part narrative, I found this slender volume to be one of the best books I've run across about the milestone year that everyone faces. I highly recommend it!
About Fabulously Fifty and Reflecting It
This is my story, a story of a woman who has discovered how through my reflections, the truly fabulously lovable me; the authentic me that I was born to be. I have moxie like the trail blazing women of the 20’s.
Today I am a confident, lovable courageous woman who realizes that fairy-tales don’t always have the ending of children’s books, but they can have the ending and continuation of what we truly want and believe. I have sass, courage, spunk, determination and attitude.
This book is the result of hard work and perseverance on a self love journey. It is the reflection of my life and from these reflections I have created a workbook for you, the readers, to assist you on your own journey to find the most authentic loveable you. I am your voice. I speak as you. I have been where you have traveled. I have finished licking my wounds and jumped back into the ring. I am MOXIMIZED!
My reflections shared are not to place blame on anyone in my path, for I take responsibility for my reactions to every challenge I have come across in my life. I just want you to understand that I have walked in your shoes and have never given up. You can restart your life at any time you want and still succeed in whatever you desire. This is not always easy but if it was then the journey wouldn’t be quite as exciting. “Easy is never fun” – to quote my fabulously delicious self love coach.
So I invite you into my world and to reflect upon your world. Enjoy the journey – I promise you it will be the most fabulously wonderful ride of your life.
About Tamara Elizabeth
I am a speaker, author, self love coach, radio host, a master motivator of women in transition, conductress of motivational seminars, professional photographer, small space designer, lover of social media, mother of 5, and a fabulously loveable woman after my first 50 years. I am determined to create a revolution of women.
I empower women to look in the mirror and discover their true loveable reflection. I coach women to discover their moxie and to embrace the abundance of the universe that is rightfully theirs. I believe the journey you follow in this life is yours and only yours. You cannot change what life deals you but you can change how you deal with life.
My journey has been a rocky one of late and I have had to start my life again at fifty. I believe that if I can do this then any woman can. I decided to take the experiences in my journey this far and help others succeed like I have. From this process I wrote a book – Fabulously Fifty and Reflecting It! – Discovering My Loveable Me.
It is a book of my past, present and future reflections with the hope that each essay will inspire the women who read it to work on the worksheets that accompany each story, with the result of each reader finding a way to follow their journey without giving up.
My mentoring program – Ten Steps to Discovering and Living the Most Loveable You! (with Sass, Courage, Spunk, Determination and Attitude –aka Moxie) - will empower women in transition to work through a process with the result in them finding the fabulously loveable self. My devout enthusiasm and desire for each client to succeed more than they do will coach them to success.
Born and raised In Vancouver, BC, I have returned to the city life after 20 years away. I have moved into a 500 sq ft apartment in the heart of downtown and I am now living my online business – Every Small Space is a Living Place. I enjoy practicing what I am posting and I enjoy the challenges of small space living. As a hobby for 30 years, I decided to create a new business from it at 50 yrs of age. ESS is developing into a wonderful forum for people to come to find solutions to their small space challenges. This concept works well into my-self love coaching program – helping women in transition build their own individual living space – no matter what the size.
Handling challenges has become a passion of mine and a good thing since my journey is filled with them. Since I started on my self- love journey, I have accepted every challenge thus finding the positive in each which contributes to the person I am (and meant to be), and learning the great lessons each challenge offers me.
This journey in discovering the fabulously loveable me has brought me to the decision that my passion in life is to become a self love coach myself. Fitting in with the life’s purpose of: to use my sense of adventure and humor to encourage and nurture others individuality and potential.
It’s never too late to be what you want to be when you grow up. My intention in this life is to help others – especially women -become fully independent, self-loving creatures, living their lives to the fullest no matter what their means.
I have 4 greatest accomplishments in my life – my 4 grown children. My next greatest joy is my step son that I have had the honor of nurturing for the past 7 years.
Today, I live with my two boys – Buddy and Jackson; Bichon Frises, who everyday remind me that loving myself is the best thing I can do for myself, and then loving others unconditionally will come naturally. It is a fabulous feeling.
I have had the honor to travel throughout the world seeing life through a lens. I have met and lived in cultures that I have come to accept and embrace fully. With this passion, I have sponsored two lovely children in Africa through the Christian Children’s Fund, financed over 275 mico-finance businesses in the third world through kiva.org, and donate monthly to mywomenforwomen.org.
To date I am an esteemed member of the 2010-2011 Cambridge Who’s Who as one of 400,000 prominent net-workers in the world.
I simply adore the words: fabulous, loveable, empower, tiny, small, spunk, sass, courage, determination, attitude and (to borrow a most delightful word from my own self-love coach) – Delicious!
Have YOU finished licking your wounds? Then it’s time to get back into the ring. Overcome life’s hardships with sass, courage, spunk, determination, and attitude…GET MOXIMIZED!
