This.Is.Awesome! Good Luck! (Can I enter too?? ;-)


Wow! What a powerful post! I can so relate in so many ways. Good luck on the competition! Trying to find the me I lost and want to be is why I started looking into the blogging world- I'm so glad I found yours!


Amazing post and one so many of us moms can relate to. In fact u r where I want to be!!!!!


I have been reading you for a long time and I think this is the best post you have ever written.


I love this post.


This is a wonderful post. I have been reflecting a lot on how much I forget myself in all the stuff of motherhood. I wrote about change recently and this is one of the things I need to focus on...me! Great job re-focusing and getting back to what you love and loving yourself. I does make together better!

Fabulous post, Carmen. Learning to be authentic is so important. I have been working on that as well and you're right - it makes me happier, which in turn makes everyone around me happier. Forget about following! It's impossible to be happy if you are not being true to yourself. Good luck with the contest!


Awesome!! I'm in my early 30's, and my youngest started kindergarten this past fall. And it has been an interesting year to discover what sort of person I am when I'm not home with a baby/toddler/preschooler. I've suddenly started wearing a little more jewelry, experimenting with makeup, stuff like that. And I agree; sometimes, it's not how the people around us perceive us, it's how WE perceive ourselves!


This is so powerful. I love your message and seriously needed it this week.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
