I had a dream that I lost notes for a class and was not prepared. That's me in the past, not the me today. It is important to let go of trauma from the past and recognize that growth has occured, then move forward.
This election was a good example of maintaining focus and getting important work done.
I also wrote something succinct and effective in the dream. The best thing est thing to do is to drop any old grad class that I don't care anything about class and move forward, employing the current skills that I possess.
We sometimes feel that we are trapped in a situation and there is no way out. The fact is that we may feel constrained when there is no reason to continue to a path that leads nowhere. We have choices we can make, actions we can take that can lead us into a more fulfilling reality.
In that dream, also, I was surprised to note that the day of the election had arrived. A test like that only last so long; it does not go on forever, or should not. But something in us may impel us to stay in a state of limbo forever.
That's not, I submit, any way to live. A message to myself...and to you.
