Time to make some magic

by Lara on January 19, 2014

How do you break through over a year of writer’s block?

Writer’s block that’s grown from a need to shift an online presence from “mom” to social media professional.  That has grown from the importance put into being eternally cognizant of your personal brand. That yells “if you have time to write it should be for something that could make you money!” at you.

I’ve made many excuses for abandoning this blog that I love.  This blog that I started days before my first child was born.  That helped change my life by bringing me into the world of online community for moms….

I’m going to break through the writer’s block with a sheer force of will :)

2014 for me is a year where I plan to take back my happiness.  Instead of letting life rule me, I will rule it.  I want to push myself to be the person I want to be.

Someone who does things she likes to do simply for the enjoyment of them.

Someone who does things to better herself (in her own eyes) as a person.

Someone who takes care of her body in order to set a good example for her children and also to not feel like crap all the time.

Someone who enjoys her family and works to find the ways to make everyone feel happy and fulfilled.

Someone who pushes hard to build the career she knows she’s capable of.

How am I going to do that? I’ve set goals and tasks galore.  One of the things is to write here at least once a month. I hope that by thinking about the me that isn’t just professional I’ll spend more time inside the moments.  I’m going to work on loving life and looking for happiness.

I’m going to make my own magic.

This post makes me happy (and also makes me feel like I have company in dragging a dead blog back to life). Wishing you whatever it takes to keep your magic in sight when it hides behind things like work and chores and other I-don't-wannas.

Hooray! I always enjoyed your writing and am glad you'll be getting back to this blog. But even more, I am happy that you'll be taking time to make your own magic. I have had a recent reminder that life is short and very fragile. No one can be happy all the time, but it is something to strive for. Good luck. I will be reading with interest.

I remember when you got the gliding picture taken, it doesn't seem like that long ago but look at those babies!
