“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
― Brené Brown

We are all storytellers. We tell our stories with our words and behavior, everyday. We tell these stories to ourselves, to our friends and to the strangers we meet. These stories are not always true and they aren't always kind. They can have a profound impact on our mental, physical and emotional health.

For me, these types of stories end now. No more holding myself hostage to my past, what I think my future is supposed to look like or the opinions of others.

To make good on this, I'm leaving a stable income, subletting my apartment and embarking on a 3-month adventure I'm calling the MOVE SIT WRITE tour. During which, I'll be traveling the U.S. teaching people to listen to, record, support/eradicate the stories they're telling themselves. 

I'll also be collecting the stories of the people I meet along the way, publishing them on Wanderlust.com and eventually transforming them into a book. These will be human stories of transcending struggles through hard work, growth and self-love. They will show that the philosophy of yoga is truly practiced by every body, regardless of shape, color, size, age, gender, sexual orientation and beyond. I cannot think of a better time than RIGHT NOW to tell these stories.

This is happening super fast. I'm leaving for this trip without much in savings. Without your help, I won't be able to afford this. Your donation will go toward my car rental, gas and food. (ie. the really important stuff that gets me from A to B and keeps me alive. :)

SEE MY TOUR SCHEDULE

I need to raise these funds before March 1.

I've made a point to keep the pricing of my workshops affordable on this tour. I believe that this work should be accessible to everyone. This means I won't make anywhere near as much as your average yogalebrity. ;)

Below, I have created a series of incentives that should make your donation worth your while. If you want something from me that you don't see below, I'm happy to strike a deal with you, so feel free to message me privately.

Thank you so much for helping. Love you.

Hey there,

Tour is officially over and I have you to thank. Because of your donation, I was able to go on a 7,000-mile adventure around the U.S. meeting new faces and facing new challenges. I'm rather speechless, to be honest. And I'm usually really chatty.

This tour opened up a new, important level of awareness. I've realized I can be both brave and terrified at the same time. I can be working on myself and super dateable. I can be exhausted and filled with motivation. Same goes for you.

This weekend, I'm heading back to NYC to get my things and move them to Minneapolis for the summer before I ship off to Hawaii this fall for a few months. If you'd like to keep up with me, go to my website and sign up for my newsletter: tatumfjerstad.com

You can also follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, if you don't already. All those links are on my website.

And don't hesitate to drop me a line at tatummarie@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks again. I love you.

YOU GUYS! I met my goal. You are incredible. I can't believe this. Thank you so much for showing up, supporting the cause and contributing your hard earned money to this. You didn't have to, but you did. I don't think I can express how thankful/ emotional/ honored/ humbled I am to know you. ALL of you. EVEN YOU. YES. YOU. Next time I see you, you are getting the biggest hug, whether you want it or NOT. :)

I won't be able to meet you when you roll through the YourYogaMn studio, but I felt like you have a strong message (and I hope some of these funds can help support one of your professional naps).

Hey! You were important in my life - you chose me to write at 2014 Stratton Wanderlust, and now I'm trying to feed myself writing and ski patrolling. I used to make $160 an hour; now I make $9 an hour. Here's $50.00 - that's nearly 6 hours of my life. You'll do fine. Might be good to remember (and less scary) that this journey is less about you then it is for the people with which you connect. You are my hero. Keep in touch - do good buddy!
