8 Lessons I Learned from Building with LEGO Blocks Everyday for a Year: Lesson 8 Magictastically You
8 You can create magic in this world, because you are magic
Believe it or not, I wasn’t a big believer in magic. That word wasn’t really in my vocabulary until it choose me in 2016 to be my word of the year. And thank goodness it did. It shows just how clouded I had become by fear that there was no room in my heart for magic or wonder.
We all are unique and have our own magic. The magic lies in listening to and being ourselves. When you uncover all the crap that tries to keep you blocked (and it is a daily process), that is what you discover – you are magic. Truly, you can create magic in your life if you allow yourself to believe a different story. A story that you are helping to write.
When the idea for this experiment and creating an online course on building creativity visited me, I didn’t have a clue what all the steps would entail. But I started and I allowed the idea time and space to build. I committed myself to the process of discovery, to basically learning a new language, and to so much unknown, because it spoke to my soul. Now when people tell me an idea they want to build and they say it sounds silly, I immediately tell them, that is not silly. Because it’s not.
If something is calling to you, no matter how much you think you aren’t qualified, don’t have time, it scares you, or you worry what others will think, I hope you will gather your courage (or the encouragement from others) and put that first brick down. Start laying the foundation because you have no idea the castle in the sky that you might build if you allow yourself to just begin.
Please say yes to the magic that is in your soul, that is saying it wants to build something beautiful in this word instead of letting it be the same or to give into despair and destruction. Creativity awakens something in us. It reminds us of who we truly are – creators – who can create something out of nothing. I don’t think it gets more magical than that.
Trust that you have magic, power, love, and light beyond the bounds of even your imagination, and start building and creating the magic that you desire in your life. I still don’t know where this adventure is taking me, but I keep building and rebuilding everyday, and I can’t tell you how much magic and wonder I’ve experienced along the way.

Believing in yourself is a big help in achieving success in life. It may not be easy to have confidence in what you can achieve or do, but you can do it step by step. It may help that you write all that you want and what you can do about it. You may also take note of the things that's blocking your way to achieve it. Always remind yourself that you can if you will it.
