Magical Mom is the internet version of the deep corner in our mind that asks “Is this normal? Am I a good mother even when I lose my temper with the kids? Am I a good wife even when I snap at my husband? Is it normal to get so angry? Am I good?”
Here, we ask these questions out loud.
We will explore the awakening that happens to every single one of us from the moment we become mothers. It’s not that our children make us better humans, nor that now when we have kids we have finally achieved something in life. The truth is much simpler:
We have been given a second chance to rewrite our story.
We are blessed to relive our own history through a new perspective and from a different role. We can learn how to reparent our own inner child.
Some will panic, others will know exactly what to do, but most of us are just scared – we don’t want our children to suffer the way we did. If you’re already here, they won’t.
Magical Mom is a “mommy space” that has absolutely nothing to do with potty training, sleep habits, veggie eating or tantrums. It’s all about YOU. How can you become happier? How can you learn to set boundaries with the people you love? How to take care of yourself without feeling like you’re neglecting your family?
The Magical Mom Mantra:
“I am good.
The people in my life are good.
I am intelligent.
Everything is a learning opportunity.
There is always a solution, and I have the ability to find it.”
My name is Talida, and I created this community after learning that being vulnerable and brave is our biggest strength as women. Only when we open up and discuss our feelings of unworthiness, we “wake up” and become conscious of how they affect the way we parent our kids and live our lives. We have a responsibility to change our own inner dialogue and thus changing how our next generations talk, think, love and belong.
I am a big believer in the philosophy of minimum effective dose and I am often heard asking “what is the smallest change I can make to drastically improve my life?"
I have three children and one husband. I love Pu-erh and oolong tea, I am an avid reader, an eternal optimist, early riser and a boring cook. I studied to be an engineer but never worked as one, found love in the sky and my soul in the eyes of my 4-year-old daughter K and 2-year-old twins B and A (who were originally positioned as twin A and twin B). I cherish my privacy, despite putting myself out there on the internet.
