ABOUT ME

Hello,

I am Tania.  Thank you for visiting my website. Here is a quick background on me and the purpose of my site.

 

I was born in Tehran, Iran and moved during the revolution to the U.S.  I am half Persian and half American. I have one older sister. I moved several times during childhood, attending three different elementary schools, and four different schools through high school.  I eventually found permanent residence in Los Angeles and received a Bachelor's in Psychology with an Elementary Teaching Credential.

 

My multiple interests and need for change took me from being an elementary school teacher to working in entertainment as a stand-in and background performer, dabbling in creative arts businesses, brief media writing stint, and steady work as a paralegal.

 

My joys of travel began as a child when I was taken around Europe with my family. It restarted in my late 20s when I would travel to a new destination every year.  I love different regions in France such as Provence, Villefranche, Nice, Avignon, Loire Valley, and Paris.  I enjoyed Geneva, London, Belgium, and Florence.  My favorite U.S. cities are San Francisco and Portland, and en route to discovering others.

 

I have a fur baby Maltese named Chippie.  I love nature whether hiking or a peaceful space in a garden. Rejuvenation is always sought in nature. Simplicity is my way of life.  Peaceful space and less chaos.

 

 

THE PURPOSE OF MYSTICAL HUMMINGBIRD PUBLICATIONS

 

I never imagined that I would be confronted with the most difficult journey in my life.  I was a caregiver to my mom during a terminal illness.  She was a dear, close, and amazing person in my life.  It was my purpose to give her the best quality of life, as I knew no other way.  It was the most challenging time that tested my resilience and delicate emotions.

 

I started to journal while caring for her, purging all my emotions and complexities of dealing with the medical community and relentless illness. This led to writing more content on self-care for myself and creating a book. I edited most of my personal experience to focus on women caregivers taking care of themselves during this time.

 

My mom passed away which was an emotionally painful experience and once I got a grip on my life I wanted to continue meaningful, purpose-driven missions.  Two and half months later, barely getting used to my grief, a good friend passed away.  He supported me during this journey.  I was numb and did not know how to bring back joy or find inspiration again.  I was deeply depressed which is acceptable during this time.   I found my way through healing and must do something in this arena.  

 

Challenging times are part of being human and support is crucial.  That is my theme for this site.

I coach women to also write their impactful nonfiction books and get them published.  They can have a supportive space and motivation to complete their project. No one is alone in their journey when they discover others with similar experiences. 

I have a podcast for mental well being called Healing Minds,  "A Healthy Lifestyle Begins with the Mind."  I interview change-makers in the arena of mental health.  I also have a monthly resilience group for women where we share important topics.

 

Thank you for stopping by.
