Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Talia Jacobs. I’m an orphaned child of parents I hardly knew but loved deeply. Although I didn’t understand everything that was happening around at the time, I recognized that I was alone. It didn’t matter how much people tried to reach me, I was reluctant to let them in. It was the only way I felt I could protect them. You see, people who care about me almost always seem to get hurt.
I’m comfortable in my own skin and have a desire to be an active participant in life. I know what I want and I’m not afraid to obtain it. There are times when I find myself underestimating the profound impact I have on the people I meet along my life journey. I’m not sure why they are drawn to me and compelled to want to be close. There are a few people I feel blessed to hold a connection with. I treasure them and the moments we share, but I am so sad that what they want from me, is not something I wish to offer.
I know this might sound crazy, but I’m going to tell you anyway. I trust I will recognize the soul I am meant to be with when they cross my path. Until then, I prefer to be alone.
What is your role in the story?
This isn’t a story; this is my life. You get to walk beside me through every aspect of my highs and lows as I fumble my way through a catacomb of choices and experiences that force me to establish who I am in that moment. I’m the hero of my own story because to succeed in life, we all need to be our own greatest supporter.
What is your favorite hobby?
I’m an enigma with an insatiable curiosity so there are many favorite things to do. Here are three that I consider a key staple in my life.
Travel is the foremost because I feel alive when I allow myself the freedom to roam and explore the world. There is no-one who knows me so in the presence of strangers I have a clean slate. I am Talia Jacobs, whomever that might be on that day.
Photography is a passion that I began to develop in my twenties. Seeing the world through the eye of a lens holds an attraction that I find alluring. I get to choose what you see, how you see it and within this impart my view on things. The darkroom is one of my favorite places to play.
Martial Arts is something that I stumbled upon while on my travels. I was blessed to cross paths with a Tai Chi Master who generously taught me the beauty of allowing my body to flow with graceful movements. He instructed me on the power of channeling my energy constructively into strikes. It was during the course of my training that I realized that I could obtain a feeling of internal peace.
What is the challenge you are trying to overcome in the story?
This book is an exploration about relationships, the power of kindness, the importance of self awareness and the celebration of love. When I was a child people didn’t know how to connect with me, mainly because I didn’t know how to connect with myself. It wasn’t easy to comprehend the loss of my parents and the vulnerability of being dependent on strangers to live. Silence was my safe place.
My greatest fear is repeatedly experiencing the excruciating pain of having those that I love being torn away from me. I’m not able to keep people connected without hurting them. They almost always want more than I want to offer in return.
I don’t know all the answers but I am brave enough to seek them.
If you had one wish, what would it be?
My wish would be to find the love of my lifetimes. I feel lonely in the presence of all others. His absence makes my heart secretly ache.
