I came across this post of my christian friend in facebook that makes my morning smiling! I think this is worth sharing to remind every women, wife and mother out there:)‎

I had a dream...

Lately I've been dreaming of something that makes me think about it. They said that dreams really tells something important message in our lives. And I believe on that.

During the first weeks of this year 2012, when all my schedules of activities changed up side down, I had a successive dreams that has one common incident; I was being left behind! First, I ran so fast to catch the train and already so close yet still left behind. The following dreams, from group travel and they left without me. And the last was , I was left behind on the plane I suppose to be traveling with even if I was already there just watching the plane fly.

I did share this to some friends and they gave some interpretations which I think, very helpful and make sense. I may qoute what they share ;

"To dream that you are left behind represents feelings of rejection or not fitting into a group. It may also highlight fears of not being able to keep up. You are questioning your abilities. The dream may be telling you that you are not utilizing your full potential"

And last night I had another dream; I was in the running train, the next stop will be my suppose destination which is after crossing the bridge. But it was so unusual that the train stop in the middle of the brige because many wanted to step out already and I was one of them. When I was already right at the doorstep out, a friend inside the train called me, and asked "why you will go down, we aren't there yet, its already so close! " Then it was like I was back in my senses and said; what? then realize that we were still in the middle of the bridge, so I hurried turning back and went to sit back beside a friend, then I asked and wonder, why the train had stopped while it was not a stop station, then I woke up!

Well, this made me think when I woke up. I realize that my dream was telling me that I have the tendency to surrender on this journey I have nowadays, but thanks to friends who encourages me and reminds me that its already so close, we'll get there so soon! What do you think? Do you have in mind what my dreams means? Share!
