When asked which one resonates with her the most, she told us, "There's two: ‘You define who you are’ and ‘Life happens for you, not to you.’ Those are the two that I'm constantly meditating on."
She continued, “I feel like instances that happen in my life that don't make me feel good or just didn't go as planned, or there was a plot twist or whatever. I look back and I go, ‘Okay, what can I learn from this?’ So that it doesn't happen again. And that is why I love that saying life doesn't happen. You know, life happens for you, not to us. I don't like playing the victim in things. I'd rather be the conqueror than the victim.”
As for why the second saying hits home for her, she told us, "I have learned people are always going to have an opinion. You can be the nicest person. You can you can try your hardest to please everyone, but there's always going to be that one. You know, someone that's just not gonna like you. You have 80 percent who like you and 20 are not gonna like you, and you can't let them define who you are."
With regards to her partnership, Tamera explained that she chose to work with Natrol because she "believes in their messaging" and values the importance of rest.
She told us, "Sleep is really important. And it's also the same when you travel and you have to be present in your work life. But present for me is being present at my home life, [which] I feel is just as important, or maybe even more. So when they came to me about doing a possible partnership, I said absolutely, of course. I love the fact that you're taking something that is drug free. It works with your natural body cycle, so it was a no brainer for me."
Well, excuse us while we dive into her memoir—complete with wine and cookies, of course.
