Jacqueline Burke, Author – Inspiration

Where do you find your inspiration?  I find inspiration in watching the amazing individuals out there continuing to follow their dreams, no matter what is going on out there in the World, they keep plugging away.

We need to remind ourselves that life does not stop, even though we are staying in our homes.  We cannot stop pursuing our dreams, planning for the future, and going after what brings us happiness.

This is a New World we are living in, and we need to adjust our approach, our communication, and our mindset to thrive no matter what is handed to us!  We cannot give up!

I’m making sure I continue writing and working on all my projects!  Every single day!  Yes, some options have been taken from me, but they have been taken “for now”, not forever!  I’m going to make sure some of those options find their way back to me!  It may not be in the traditional way of accomplishing these projects, but I will make sure I rework these projects so they still have an opportunity to grow into the gift they were meant to be.

Please share where you are finding your inspiration; you just never know who you will be helping.  We need to stick together and encourage each other!

Communicate, reach out, and do not give up!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – In My Bubble Inspiration

“In My Bubble”, now has many meanings!

Here is some “In My Bubble” Inspiration!

First, I have always been somewhat of an introvert, and I quite liked being the silent one in the corner.  I was always personable and I interacted very well with others, on the job, in a group setting, and with family, but I preferred to be in my own space (bubble).  I was the listener, not the chatterbox!  I suppose, this could be looked at, as living in a bubble.

Second, I was raised an only child, but I was also raised growing up with many cousins, who at times, were like having siblings.  I never felt I missed out on the connection brothers and sisters have with each other.  Some automatically refer to only children as living in a bubble, because some only children are found to be on the “shy” side.

Third, I’m a firm believer, due to having an extreme amount of creativity floating around in my mind on a regular basis,  with writing out all those ideas, stories, songs, scripts, and even recipes, allowed me to never feel lonely.  Even though I was by myself in my bubble, it was never boring.

See, there are many ways of living in a bubble!  My Bubble is a very comfortable place!

In my past, some would say, “she lives her life in a bubble!”  I refuse to see anything wrong with that; sometimes, people need a place to escape too which can bring them peace.

The point is, if someone is happy regardless of whether it works for you or not, then just be happy for them.  Whether you enjoy time alone, or you prefer crowds, the bottom line is the importance of what makes someone comfortable.

Now that “we are all” living in a time of seclusion and quarantine, I find more than ever, I’m creating more and more in my bubble.  The creativity has been endless; I can’t type fast enough with all these ideas I have floating around in that colorful bubble of mine.

Regardless, if you like to live in a bubble, or you prefer constant noise around you, as long as you are happy, that is the main thing!  Just as long as you are making the best out of it and finding something good in each day!

I hope you can find your own creative space in your bubble; it can be a very happy place!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – It’s Time!

It’s Time!  I’ve taken the past couple of weeks to, for lack of better words, “get a grip” on reality.  I will admit, the last 14 days have been ones of shock and anxiety; something I share with the rest of the World.  However, it is time to stand tall, strong, and motivated to be part of the solution.

My family and I have been in our home for 14 days now; only to leave once, to pick up some groceries.  We have decided,  we now can lock ourselves down for a month, before we will need to venture out to get more supplies.  We are trying to be as proactive as possible!

There will be a lot of writing done during this time, and trust me, It’s Time!

Not to long ago, I had a thought going through my mind about how, “we never seem to have enough time”, well now we have lots of it!

The In My Closet series was written with “Time” in mind.  Since everyone is so busy with their schedules and families, I wrote each book in this series, to be read in just over an hour or hour and a half.  This way, if someone was on their lunch hour, they could read a book on their break/breaks, or you could read these books, just before you go to bed at night.

It’s Time, I get back to my projects, there will be a lot of updates and “coming soon” posts.  I just wanted to check in with you to remind you we all have Time!  This World has given us more time to “stay in our homes”, “spend time with family” or “dive into creativity”, let us make good use of our time, as we are all doing it Together!!

Love to you all and wrap yourself up in Creativity!  It’s Time!!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – An Idea Comes When You Least Expect It

My passion in writing, has been a 30 year journey!  I’ve kept many journals, with ideas, stories, concepts, characters, and simply my own personal thoughts on my day.  I am grateful for writing everything down, as you never know when inspiration will hit you!

For example, last Summer, we were living in our trailer at our campsite; I found myself in a laundry facility doing our weekly loads, when there it was – inspiration!  I’m grateful I had my journal with me!  I know I received quite a few looks from other people, as I was not participating with their conversations.  Instead, I was simply sitting down, in between loads, writing in my journal.  In doing so, I escaped to a place where I could no longer hear the thumping and rattling of the overloaded washing machines, or the humming of the dryers.  The laundry facility did not exist in this time of inspiration.

My ideas come to me, when I least expect it!  I used to feel panic when an idea would hit me, as I was putting pressure on myself to remember every detail until I could get home to write it down.  Hence the reason I now keep my journals with me at all times.

I still love the feeling of pen to paper!

I have boxes and boxes filled with all my ideas and thoughts; some have been turned into lyrics for music,  ideas for novels, and what I refer to as my, “mother-load” box, are my ideas for eventually diving into writing for film/television.  The one thing that I have accomplished, is controlling the panic.  Due to having my journals and writing things down as they come, the information is now safe and locked in!  They are just aging and becoming full bodied while I type them into my laptop.  No more panic!

Grab a journal and a pen, and WRITE!  Write down your thoughts, get it out!  You never know where your inspiration will come from; harness it when it makes its appearance!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – I Have A Lot To Say!

I’ve always been a great listener; a quality I am proud of!  I’ve found over the years, I’ve been known for being that person to go to when someone needs to unload their thoughts without being judged.  Something I’m very proud of, but I’m also craving for my voice to be heard!  I have a lot to say!

I do not regret helping others in their time of need, and in fact I enjoy helping others.  I also want to help myself.  A reason for writing!

My mind is full of creative projects, which stem from all that I want to say and all I’ve ever wanted to say.  I pour my heart out in my writing, I solve all my problems in my writing, and I heal in my writing.  I have given myself the gift of communication in my writing and I will never regret following my dream of becoming a writer.  Writing has cleared my path to be able to express myself!

I have an endless amount of projects that will be released in the near future; some still need to age like a fine wine, but I’m comforted knowing they are still there gaining strength!

If you are struggling to be heard – WRITE!  Your heart can be heard if you do not have someone who will listen!  By writing all your thoughts down on paper, or by typing them into your laptop, you are unloading all you need to say.  Writing is an outlet to heal your mind.  There is no reason to continue to lock up all your thoughts in your mind; there is only so much storage space in there; release and feel the calming it will bring to your life.

I encourage everyone to dabble in writing your thoughts out, if anything, it is quite liberating to say all that you need to say!  Open that bottle and let it pour out!

Jacqueline Burke, Author – A Passion For Writing

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a creative mind.  I went through stages in my life, feeling as though I was not worthy of a writing career.  It wasn’t so much about my ability to write, it was more about intimidation.  I knew I had it in me, but was I good enough?  Yes!  It was just a matter of sorting through all my creativity and a matter of time!  Putting it all into perspective!

As we all know, things do not happen overnight!  Boy isn’t that the truth!  We may have to wait, days, months, and even years, but eventually if we stay true to our passion for writing, then it will eventually all fall into place.

This mindset is true for anything you may feel extremely passionate about; a hobby, a sport, a goal, or a career, but the reality of it all is that great things are worth waiting for.  Timing, growth, and finding peace in your passion is key!

My passion for writing has no limits; I find I can write fiction, non-fiction, music and even handbooks – I’ve harnessed it all and to be honest, by doing so has brought complete fulfillment to my life.

I want you all to know, all great passions in your life are possible with dedication.  If you do not put any pressure on yourself to accomplish your passions, then you are eliminating frustration.  Live each day with passion in your heart, focus on your passions daily (even if you are just thinking about them), and stay true to what is driving you in your heart!  You will accomplish everything you set out to do without pressure; enjoy each day just knowing you have a passion in your life.

Jacqueline Burke, Author – Writing Retreat

I believe it has something to do with living in a community which experiences long Winters, but I detect a Writing Retreat in my future.

For me a writing retreat is a place of solitude, with the option to get pampered 😊

As I pour out my heart into my writing, I feel it is important to rejuvenate during this process.  It not only relaxes my body, but it brings my mind to a place of rest and peace; this allows my creative thoughts to present themselves in calming fashion.

My lists are endless, so when I find myself excited about every creative idea, and I can’t seem to write them out fast enough to share with everyone, then I know it is time to retreat.

Not always do I go away for a retreat; sometimes I turn “me” days into retreats, and find some form of comfort and relaxation during that “me” day.

Busy brain then turns into a nice calming creative space in my mind.

I’m looking forward to my retreat; it is needed 😊💖

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow 2024 North American Tour

https://www.gofundme.com/the-good-vibes-only-roadshow-north-american-tour

Who will benefit:  EVERYONE! 

We are firm believers in the following:

Birthplace:  Earth
Race:  Human
Politics:  Freedom
Religion:  Love

There is far too much negativity in the World!  We would like to do our part in bringing more Good Vibes to those in need.  The Good Vibes Only Roadshow, helps people who are struggling, helps people take back their control in the fact that it is okay to be a positive person, as well this tour helps people see that it is alright to be who you are meant to be in this World.  This tour is about bringing a whole new perspective!  New perspectives are needed!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow is a creative tour to help absolutely everyone.  We want to bring people together who are not only struggling, but who are wanting to share Good Vibes as well.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow Tour will be from town-to-town, city-to-city, small venues to larger venues,  coffee shops, book stores, music festivals, vintage markets, RV parks, and many other venues – Good Vibes Only one location at a time!

Due to the fact this tour is quite large, the funds we are trying to raise will be strictly for the costs of venues, administration costs, pubic relations, promotional items, advertising costs and marketing costs.

Once we have gone on the road with our Tour, we will also be helping some of the less fortunate and giving to some families in their time of need.   We realize we cannot help all families in need, but we are hoping to start a trend for others to get involved with.  We will be blogging about the families we have helped during this tour and sharing their Good Vibes story.

We will be providing workshops, motivational speaking, book signings, and much, much more!

We are planning this tour for 2024, although it is five years away, it will take this time to generate the funds that will be needed.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow is also a book tour featuring:

Jacqueline Burke, Author (me) I’ve written The Good Vibes Only Roadshow, as well as, a fictional book series In My Closet (3 book series)

J.C. Brae, Country Music Artist – we will be creating J.C.’s documentary on this tour as well.  J.C.’s goal is to help other musicians to see that not everything happens overnight.  It is okay to have your ups and downs in the music industry and still come out of it ahead.   Due to the fact, depression and anxiety is common in the music industry with rejection, we want to focus on how important a change in mindset is key to help these individuals.

We are also providing this Tour as a family; J.C., our daughter and myself will be working together to help others.  Between the three of us, we also want to show support to other creative minds and to encourage them to continue with their passions in life.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow Tour is extremely informative in many areas.

We will also be documenting this journey on all our social media outlets.

For our vision to become a reality, would be a dream come true.  We need to follow our dreams, in hopes to be able to help, at the very least, one person at a time.

There is far too many people struggling with depression and anxiety in the World, and we would like to do our part in showing people other creative ways of helping themselves.

We would like to thank you for your help, and we are extremely grateful!  Words cannot express to you just how we appreciate your help.  It is important to us for you to know just how much this is needed.  Thank you so much and we look forward to bringing this Tour to you.
