Stop. Breath. Pray.

We live in a fast-paced world. Everything changes so quickly. Just when you think all your computer software is updated, you get that nasty pop-up message telling you that you can’t watch a movie or view a page because your plug-in or application is outdated. Stores change their merchandise around so fast – good luck finding gloves in the middle of January or a swim suit in the middle of July!  (Yes, you can order them online, but hey! the one thing you WANT fast, will take forever – unless you are willing to pay …

SAY GOODBYE AND LET GO

To say goodbye is the hardest thing… but in order to heal, we have to let go of grief and move on. We have to come out of the shadows and embrace the Light. GETTING STUCK IN PAIN When my father passed away in 2006, I got stuck at the foot of the Cross – crushed by the pain of losing my Dad, strangely finding comfort in Christ’s sacrifice. I had been performing “I Thirst” concerts – a powerful musical portrayal of the Crucifixion story – and with each note, each line, I’d get deeper …

GETTING UNSTUCK (Or Is There a Life Lesson in Candy Crush)

We all get stuck sometimes. Some of us find ourselves in unpleasant situations, like losing a job or not being able to find one, being in an abusive relationship, or dealing with unhealthy habits and addictions. We are unable to break away until the pain grows to a point where it becomes our greatest motivator to make a shift in our hearts, minds and souls. And get unstuck. Some of us, on the other hand, get stuck in a comfortable situation, which we don’t even want to change, or see no reason WHY we would …

Keep Calm and Tear Down the Walls

Allowing another person a glimpse into your soul is actively participating in creating those moments in which the change within may happen. It’s one of those cool instances when the giver becomes the one receiving, and the one receiving becomes the giver. Each of us is beautifully unique and we all have so much to offer to each other – even when we think we don’t. We are all drawn to those around us who seem to be unafraid of letting their light shine and their soul show (like Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr, …

The Greatest Show On Earth – and the Finale is up to You

I suspected it was a fluke. Something that only happened at that particular place with that particular group of people. It stopped me in my tracks like a great tragedy would. Except it wasn’t a tragedy I was witnessing. It was something so ordinary, so basic, and yet so magnificent it made me pause in awe and wonder. But the lesson in it, if not taken to heart, could be tragic.  The Crowds Show Up  Four days in the row, my husband, our kids and I came to the beach in Naples, FL. I had …

Magic Wand? or a Combo of Hard Work and Faith?

Playlist: “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” (from my album “A Chance to Dream”) “If you eat your dinner, I’ll take you to Disneyland some day”. This was the only conditional phrase I ever heard my Dad say. He didn’t do much of the disciplining or raising us, my mom did. So, when he did, I took it seriously. He was either tremendously brave or completely ignorant to have made this promise to me, sitting in a small, grimy kitchen of our rented apartment in Zagreb in the winter of 1974. Disneyland was …

Waiting for Christmas in Silence. Or Not.

Growing up in my Croatia, I didn’t know there was such a thing as Advent. Christmas Eve came quietly. Our city streets and lamp-posts weren’t gleaming with millions of string lights during the darkest time of winter. Christmas was wrapped in a mystery, known only to those who believed. Perhaps that’s why I love the American tradition of decorating houses shortly after Thanksgiving, playing Christmas music on the radio, putting up lights and trimmed up trees on city squares and corners, watching people getting into the holiday spirit – everyone in their own way… Some …

Tajci’s Playlist for Mothers – and a Reflection on Motherhood From A Touring Artist’s Point of view.

Link to “Songs for Moms” Playlist: RN Playlist “1000 concerts is a big number in any artist’s life” stated the press release about our milestone concert that happened on October 26th in Cincinnati, OH. As I prepared the music and the narratives for the performance and gave promotional interviews, I thought about one huge aspect of this accomplishment that easily gets overlooked: Mothering through 1,000 concerts and 13 years on the road. My husband Matthew and I raised our three sons Dante (13), Evan (11) and Blais (8) while traveling around America, with music dedicated …
