Dream your dreams motivational poem for children and dreamers by Rebecca BurnsI sang this to my son every night when he was a baby, I wrote it just for him, it was amazing when I then had a little girl with the voice of an angel to sing it to me, crazy how that happens. I hope you and your children enjoy it as well.

Dream Your Dreams
by Rebecca J. Burns

Close your eyes my little one
Close your eyes and dream
You can be anyone,
Anyone you dream
You can go anywhere,
do anything,
meet anyone
Just close your eyes and dream your dreams
Let your imagination take control
Take you on adventures never told
Just close your eyes my little one
Close your eyes and dream with me
You can fly above the mountains
You can swim beneath the sea
Its a great big world before us
Come along and dream with me
You can swing from every tree top
You can conquer every fear
There’s no need to be frightened
You’re not alone here in your dreams
Just open up your mind and let your dreams flow through
ts a great big world around us
Come on along and dream with me
Sweet dreams my little one

heaven must have needed angels

The title says it all, “Heaven Must Have Needed Angels”. After the tragedies that follow I was unable to rest until I had written down my thoughts and feelings.  Many of the poems were written as I watched the events unfold on television with the rest of the world.  The poems helped me grieve and my hope is they will help you too. While I know to some the title doesn’t work but for me, it helps to calm my mind knowing they are now in Heaven.

Below is a link to a poetry book that I wish I had never needed to write, the poetry book contains 10 Poems to help heal, below I wanted to share the one titled, “Heaven Must Have Needed Angels,” this was a poem, like the rest that I wish I never felt the need to write.  As a writer I must write to deal with life, sadly I have shared this poem countless times since I wrote it the day the towers fell.

Dedicated to the Angels of September 11, 2001

Heaven must have needed Angels
For so many to have died
Too many went to Heaven
In the blinking of an eye

Flying through the sky that day
When the Heavens opened wide
Heaven must have needed Angels
To make this Nation Cry

What do we tell the children
It was not a bomb
That blew up the World Trade Center
And crashed into the Pentagon

We see it on the news
Cell phones ringing hopeful news
Will Daddy call us one more time
And ask how was your day

What do we tell the children
Daddy’s flight went oh so wrong
He called to say he loves us
Then in a moment, he was gone
And along with the Nation
We watched the towers fall
Daddy called to say he loved us
That’s what matters after all

Was it a mistake
Did the pilot lose his way?
We have to tell our children
They had hit where they had aimed

Men we do not know who hated US soil
Took people who meant more to us
Then the buildings that they blew

They destroyed a landmark
When they rocked our Nation’s core
But to take away our loved ones
Was to have taken so much more

When you kiss your children goodnight
Midst the rubble and the pain
Tell them mommy or daddy’s in Heaven
Beside them once again

breath like a baby

If you want to learn how to breath right, watch a baby,this is how we all used to breathe



I new breath was important but had no idea that doing breathing exercises could improve my overall health and mindset.  Since I am always searching for ways to improve my life when I saw a video that assured me that in 19 seconds I could feel better, why not. click here to read more.

One of my all-time favorite books is called Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach. If you never read another book of self-discovery, read this one. A dear friend gave me this book a few years after I was out of the abuse.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall – how staring down that woman in the mirror can help you recover from abuse

It is set up to read a quote and then one page for the day, something to inspire you and make you think. I read that book front to back for over five years.

I would finish the book, then a month or so later pick it back up and start all over again.

Each you I was growing so when I read the same thing again it meant something different. I grew more each time I read this book.

Change the record already – 15 tips to survive an anxiety attack and how to stop them (photo by Kinga Cichewicz)

Okay, I hate my life, my job sucks, the kids are fighting, I have no money, I can’t breathe, my chest hurts, Oh my God I think I will die, I can’t breathe ….

Does that sound familiar? It sure does to me.

I could work myself up into quite a tizzy on a moment’s notice and didn’t realize that I had the control to stop the anxiety attack. Granted taking medicine for a short time helped but the trick to stopping the attacks completely was to learn what to do before one came a knocking. To this day I am thankful that I found the ways to grow stronger as a woman, especially in the aftermath of the abuse I lived through for years.

I wrote this around 6 years ago but never posted it, while looking at some past writing I stumbled on it and felt that this was something I needed to share as nothing has changed over the years. I decided to post this on January 24th, on the anniversary of this event.

That night, some 6 years ago on January 24, 2011, I sat glued like the rest of the state as we saw a house being turned to ashes; even wood beams and concrete were not safe from what happened today. Riddled with bullets, tear gas and death, for the safety of everyone involved, the house was destroyed.

I was working the other day and wanted to learn more about the 5-second rule, while I had used some of this in my life I wanted to know more.  The video has one of my favorite people, Lewis Howe, just a down to earth person that I am learning so much from in regards to the people he brings on his show.

Sounds too simple, but it works for me and can work for you.

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to Pinterest I go!


When I first wrote this post around 3 years ago I had just recently learned about the power of Pinterest. It was months after hearing the name before I finally decided to check out what all the excitement was about. Well, here we are, maybe 3 or more years later. At first, I was interested in what the site had to offer me in the way of marketing as it was discussed in a seminar for business and after watching a video on how to set things up, I was off and running like a kid in a candy store.

I set up a few boards and began pinning things that I liked, that is where the addiction began.
