As I sit here and reflect on the year that was in the context of Essence I know honestly the moving of house did make me loose some focus in the middle of the year. I have been trying hard to step outside my usual comfort zone, go places and do things that I would usually choose not to do but would really help me realise what I really am deep inside. You know what I mean....I am trying to search for the me as Tamara, not Haydens mother, a hockey mother, my teacher etc etc. Sometimes I really have not have any energy to push myself into discovery mode, do things I know would embrace life and me a little more. Moments like this it is easy to use Hayden as an excuse for not paying attention to myself a little more. But in the last three months or so I have made a concerted effort to be out there a little more and rediscover me. No excuses acceptable. I can see that from this effort life can be more joyful and happier. Finding the true essence of me. Long may it last.
