What is Your Dream?


Lord, I am a dream waiting to be found. Please wake me from my slumber so that I may come true." A. Bruening


Do you have a dream?  I know I do.  I’ve had it for almost 20 years.  It appears that I forgot all about that though!  Life tends to rob us of our dreams………or does it?  I think it’s more that we allow what happens to us in life to rob us of our dreams.  If you read enough self-help books (my specialty I admit) – you know that it’s our reactions to the daily grind that make or break us.

I used to be a “reality” specialist (my own term folks!).  I was steeped in “reality” – or so I thought.  The reality of my life made it so I did or thought things in certain ways.  Basically, because I tended to have tough times follow me around I was trying to adjust to my own reality in what I thought was a positive manner.  Figuring I was just doing the best I could considering all that was happening to my life I carried on my life, my direction and my thoughts accordingly.  Ok………in my case then REALITY = NEGATIVITY.  Took me over 50 years to see that this was not working for me.

Now I’m not going to sit here and bore you with all that I have come up with in the last several years to counter the negativity I was breeding in my life.  What I am going to say is that I have been doing a lot thinking and soul-searching of late and it occurred to me that in my own business, Anne Bruening Originals, I had let go of the original dream.  Life and economy just plain got to me.  And then came Susan Boyle……..you know her………..the one on Britain’s Got Talent………the underdog that people laugh at.  I’ve studied that youtube again and again.  She, too, had a dream that has been within her for a lifetime.  We all got to watch it unfold in front of thousands!

Do you realize that we are all capable of that very same thing in our own little worlds?

And so……….Anne Bruening Originals is being renewed with life.  I have new things going on that will make my products even better than before and all the more meaningful for my clients who really do mean the world to me.  I want to give you the best of me.  It is a gift from God and my gift to you.  You all have gifts too.  Use your gifts and serve with great passion.  You will be thrilled with the outcome of your service to all whether serving community, business or family.

In this economic time it is important to NOT lose heart.  These are the kind of times that make us strong.  Use this time to find out who you really are and what kind of stuff you are made of!

  1. Anne, I think you are my new best friend! I truly do believe now that God sent me your way that cold January day. The more I read your postings the more I see myself. I believe we might be kindered souls. The way your wrote about your daughter and here about your dreams…it is exactly what I would have written about my daughters and my dreams. I am hooked on self help, self discovery and follow your dreams books as well. I just hope I can soon begin to carry out the dream. As you state, times of adversity are what make us forge ahead. I plan to do just that.
    Thanks for the inspiration Anne.
