Photo-Bigger-Tolerations

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.

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.

What do you go to bed wishing you had done? Do you want to paint, write, read, discover new recipes, do crafts, sing or become a pole dancer? No matter what it is the fact that you keep thinking about it means that you either have to let the dream go, or face it head on and buy the damn pole already.

If you could see me you would laugh, I am writing on my laptop, my new Toshiba tablet sits charging next to me and my new do everything phone that I can even type on sits to my side. I have a notebook in my pocketbook at all times and a pad of paper near my bed. There is also a small tape recorder in my pocketbook so that if a song or writing idea comes into my head I can get it recorded. The only thing that I am lacking is the persistence that is needed to make my writing dreams come true.

My dream is to actually write. Sure having books published and being on a best seller list would be free icing on the cake, but not the real reason that I yearn and burn to write daily. For me writing is like putting my soul out there for everyone else to see. Baring your soul can be difficult for most women. I am far from being a perfectionist but there is something about allowing others to read my writing that keeps the thoughts held back in my head at times. I get such a great response to my soul baring writings but at times I have to wonder, who cares about what you are writing about Rebecca? Is it just you? Then tonight I smarten up and think, so what, even if something is just for me, shouldn’t I do it anyway?

When I write to you it is not just to share my needs but to encourage you to share and pursue your own dreams and wants. I had read a quote somewhere that said you must have a goal at all times to lead a really fulfilling life. The quote didn’t go exactly like that but the meaning is that you should always have something in your life worth working hard at, once you reach it, you set another one. Most times we want something so bad that when we get it we are disappointed that we are not fulfilled. The key is to have multiple goals so that you are never without one.

What goals have you set for yourself today? What are you committed to doing to bare your soul? I have committed to sharing these thoughts with you which brings me one step closer to my dreams.

Love & Peace,
Rebecca

I have written countless times how much Anthony Robbins helps me to stay focused.  The last 2 weeks I have been stuck in bed with really bad vertigo, fun, not really.  I love to sleep but that was too much for even me.  Back to Tony, when ever I get in a funk, you know, the one that I have been in bed for 7 or so days, missed work, feel like crap, that kind of funk, I know that if I listen to Tony’s voice I will somehow snap out of it.  Sometimes I put off listening to him because I am happy in my funk, go figure.

Well yesterday was the first day pretty much I had been on my computer, finally able to read without the room spinning too bad, well I found myself typing in his website at www.tonyrobbins.com.  It had a new free seminar on the front page.  I have much of his material and books and often will go to youtube or Tede to hear new talks to inspire me.  I am writing today to suggest that if you feel like I do or need a good old kick in the butt to help you set goals or move beyond where you are today I encourage you to go to his site, enter your email and immediately gain access to the talk, I think it was around an hour, even though I have heard him say much of the same before it was the repetition and inspiration that has once been ignited in me again.

Let me know what you think, I would love to know if what inspires me inspires you.

Love & Peace,
Rebecca

Never

Today I am posting another article to encourage you not to give up on life, your dreams, goals and all that you’ve ever wish to be that you’ve not become yet. You may say to yourself that this whole thing is just a make believe and that it will never come to pass giving the circumstances you find yourself in at the moment, but i want you to know that that is a big lie from the Devil.

Put yourself together and go back to your drawing board, put all the pieces together all over again and you will find out that there is a piece somewhere that you neglected or that seems so in order but is actually not in order. Tell yourself that it is not too late to start all over again, and that you can make up for all the time lost.

Don’t sit there and say that you’ve wasted so much time that cannot be re-gained,rather see it that were you are right now is a failure and if only you can make corrections, you’ll be far better off. Or do you prefer being a failure because you’ve wasted a lot of time and wont want to start all over again? Or you prefer being a success by not minding the time you’ve wasted and starting all over again?

The choice is yours to make, but rather than condemning yourself and wishing not to continue;
I ENCOURAGE you to
(1) Stand up,
(2) Dust yourself
(3) And tell yourself that you can do that thing if only you will/can give it another trial.

This time do it right,know were you went wrong,tell yourself that you went wrong some were and you will find it.and when you do just make the…
(1) Right choices
(2) Right decisions
(3) Right corrections
(4) Right approach

That way you can sail through that thing that seems so impossible.

FINALLY… A set back is a good opportunity for you to bounce back.

Anyone can tell you to sit down and write out your goals, but many times just surviving and living the life you did has taken away your ability to dream of having more.

Even if you don’t think you have a dream or goal try finding a tape or cd that makes you feel totally relaxed.  Then when ever you are feeling stressed make sure to play that tape.  Close your eyes and try to think of what you want your life to be like.  Go wild, no one is watching.  Just pretend the fairy god mother is at your back and telling you to dream big.

Now, didn’t that feel good!

Now, the next time you are feeling anxious and dwelling on your past put in that tape.  It may not work for the first few times but trust me it will.

I would often send myself into a depression just thinking about things I felt I let happen.  I was the one that married the abuser, knowing he was a drunk.  I was the one that allowed myself to bring a baby into it.  I was the one…. you get the point.

Then one day while I was doing the self sabotage thing I realized that I was allowing the past to make me depressed today.  If I had just thought the bad thought and moved on it would have been fine.  But I would often feed into that one bad thought and eventually work myself up into a terrible depression.

So, my point if there was ever to be one:  find a way to stop the repetitive cycle of self abuse.  Haven’t you suffered that enough?  You are angry at times that you let another abuse you but you are most likely the worst abuser to your spirit.

So, find a great song, tape or something that when you listen to it it brings you to a place of happiness and dreams of a better life.  I actually find that when I listen to Yanni or a tape that I have from Riverdance I clear my head and feel energized.

Find what works for you but please, find something.  If you have a tip to bring you out of the spiral down before you start to spiral out of control you are better equipped to pull yourself back from the edge.

You are never alone and I always wish you well and strength to take back your life.

Love & Peace,
Rebecca J. Burns

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
