I think the first step with self-improvement begins within. And I think I’ve been looking at “enjoying” life backwards.
I had a dream last night about missing a train to see the rest of my family. I was waiting for my mother to hurry up in Wal-Mart (I know, I know) and she was taking her sweet time. Finally, we made it to the train station but it was too late. I was frustrated and disappointed, but when I asked my mother if she cared, she shrugged and said nope. We fell asleep waiting for the next train and when I woke I was surprised to find all of my family asleep in the station next to me with the sun shining on them.
To see a train in your dream represents conformity. You are just going along with what everyone else is doing. Alternatively, a train means that you are very methodical. You need to lay things out specifically and do things in an orderly and sequential manner. In particular, if you see a freight train, then it refers to the burdens and problems that you are hauling around.
To dream that you miss a train denotes missed opportunities. It also suggests that you are ill-prepared for a new phase in your life. You may be procrastinating or putting things off that should have already been completed.
To dream that you at a train station represents a transitional period in your life. You need to take a short break to reassess your situation and determine your path and goals.
So what does this mean?
Having goals is great. My current goals are a good start, but I think they are numbered wrong. Instead of focusing on the superficial (money/debt, career advancement, weight), I would like to try to start with my spirituality. As I said before, I’m not into the big three religions. Instead, I find myself gravitating towards “New Age-y” stuff. I love tarot cards, runes, Herbalism, and meditation.
Anyway, my main goal these next few weeks will be working on my inner “me”. And hopefully, my musings will inspire someone else to look and work on the inside.
How have you appreciate what you have right now?
