First and foremost, I’m a mother. Not a stay-at-home mom but a mother 24/7 nonetheless. I raise a nine-year-old girl and much like everyone I try to balance my job and being a parent. Sometimes 24 hours is not enough and I feel guilt when I have to leave something until the next day. In other words I’m walking a tightrope, but so far I’ve managed without falling off.
I used to be a radio jockey, a segment producer at a tv station, now I’m a PR expert, a marketing consultant and an executive of my company, but I can tell you that the toughest job of all is being a mother.
I try to be the best mom I can. Much like you, I’m sure. It’s an incredible challenge but you know what I’m talking about.
The playing field is a bit uneven for me and I might say more about this in the future. Right now, we’re slap-bang in the middle of the sub-teen era, somewhere between “But I’m still little” and “Mom, I’m a big girl now”.
I know all the songs of Disney princesses by heart, and I can list the differences between the ponies even If you wake me up at two in the morning. We draw and paint for hours based on videos, and daily “chores” include singing and storytelling as well. And do you know what’s the best thing about this period – it’s that she still craves the attention of mom more than anyone else’s. But I know that this won’t last forever, so I appreciate every minute, every second, that I can spend with my daughter.
Is there something in your life that you somehow ended up doing no matter what else you tried?
For me, that something is children. I produced a radio show for kids, I was a camp leader, still today I’m involved with the creation of a musical act for kids, and it’s been eight years since we started a website for mothers, which is also a source of great joy.
I love to be around kids, I love to understand them.
My life was full of changes but I was always open and this helped.
When it comes to raising children, the same openness is what helped me the most, so I’d encourage you to be open! We tried many methods and toys with my daughter, which led to having plenty of valuable experiences.
I realised that these experiences need to be organised and shared. I trust you are open to hear about them.
My personal success story is that by now I have written proof that I’m able to help. As an Access Bars and Consciousness therapist, I’m able to tune in to others, including you. I intend to learn other therapeutic methods so as to be able to help you personally.
We created Abracadabra World to offer you a magic wand. Messages, tips, tricks, ideas designed to help you overcome the cloudy moments of being a great parent. You’re open to it, aren’t you?
There is no magic to this. Perhaps just a little bit of Abracadabra.
