hold on for one more day

Today I was listening to some of the songs that I have posted here that inspire me and remind me to be a strong woman, click here to view more

I really wanted to share Wilson Phillips – Hold On: This song has inspired me for as long as I can remember, I would listen to if often while living in abuse, it was sometimes the only encouragement that kept me going.

Now, years later it helps me see how far I have come and what I have control over. I can remember when I would listen to this song over and over for an hour or more to get me through the days. I encourage you to find songs that do that for you.

What song inspires you and helps you stay strong and see how far you have come?

Love & Peace,
Rebecca

Do you struggle to live in the moment? Are you safe and away from abuse but still struggle to stop and smell the flowers?

Living in the moment I finally realized why I struggled to live in the moment after domestic violenceYou are not alone, for many, myself included, letting your guard down and enjoying simple things can be a struggle after years of domestic violence. Most times I feel like I am doing everything that I can to avoid living in the moment by thinking about my past or thinking about what I am not doing or need to do for my future.

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

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. 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. To read more click here

Domestic Violence – the unseen impact on the families of Police OfficersThat 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. To read more click here

Stop Tolerating – Start Living. My favorite time of the year is the week between Christmas and the New Year, during that time I decide what my major 3 goals will be for the following year, one thing I strive to do is have them all written down and set in Stone by New Years day or that week at the latest, by set in stone I mean they have been written in my goal journal and entered into a PowerPoint that I update yearly and as my goals change, posted on the bathroom mirror and written somewhere so that I see them from my bed.

Do you suffer from the anxiety of wanting something so much that you yearn and crave to be doing it every minute of every day?

I do. I admit that I am a writer wannabee. I think about writing, I fall to sleep at night thinking about writing, I talk about writing; sadly, the only thing that I don’t do is actually write on a consistent basis.

Are you a Wannabee Procrastinating Dreamer?

This procrastination doesn’t affect anyone but good old me. One of my biggest fears in life was growing old alone, which doesn’t seem something that I need to worry about anymore since I have been blessed to meet the man of my dreams, but not writing is something that is allowing my life’s dream to slip away, one unwritten page and word at a time.
