So much of the time today, it is hurry up and wait, and try to be patient with each other.

This reminds me of a time in my life when I was having and remembering lots of dreams about my waitress job. These dreams entailed too many orders to fill, or the wrong food to the wrong table. I even woke up one morning and found I had unset my night table next to the bed. There were my clock, my book and my glasses on the floor!

When I was later talking to a friend about this, she remarked, “You’re a waiter. What are you waiting for?”

This sent me into a tailspin. This got me thinking about what I wanted to do for myself. I wanted to be a teacher. This is what I first studied in college before switching to biology. It was because of that great science teacher that I ended up choosing science. It was time to get back to my roots. That is when I began the path to getting my teaching certifcate and started teaching.

Now, I want to start remembering my dreams again. That’s where it begins with intention. Who knows what may be the result.

  1. Funny that I was educated as a nurse (MS) and an environmental educator (another MS), but when I dream it is either of being a student or, more often, a teacher! I hope your dreams lead you to where you want to be!

  2. Hmmm. You make me want to think deeper about my dreams. You are so intuitive about your own subconscious.
