I am a reflective and highly imaginative soul, so this blog is a space where I honor my need for a creative release. I have thoughts and stories running through my head constantly and without this blog, they would remain trapped there.
The title of my blog is inspired by one of my many stories. When I was 9, I desperately wanted a nickname. I passionately rebuked the one nickname that people tried to hand to me, “Ty,” for reasons I share with you in my first blog, Gabby Douglas’ hair bothers me, but not for the reasons most people might think… None of the other nicknames I tried on ever really stuck. So, whenever people would ask if I had a nickname, I started to tell them, “Well, my real name is Tyrannosaurus, but you can just call me Tyra!” And there it was.
JustCallMeTyra is a space that pays tribute to the harmony and discord between my lived experiences and truth. It is a blog that focuses on the rich life-lessons that can only be accessed once this imbalance is explored in a deep and honest way.
I invite you into my word space with the sincere hope that you will be open to what I am offering. Reflect, consider, share, laugh, cry, critique–all in the spirit of joy and enlightenment. In my world, these things can absolutely coexist.
Thank you for allowing me to share with you! From this point forward, there’s no need for formalities: We’re friends now!
So, please… JustCallMeTyra!
