It was just a dream… it was a nightmare but it was just a dream and it wasn’t real… And at the end of my dream I hugged people that are part of my support network. Also in my dream I recruited a new Jaycee. To encourage her to join I offered her a membership at half price. So she could learn what a life changing group of people they are… Does your chapter offer discounted membership deals for hours worked or reduced fees for the first year? Also at the end of my nightmare I hugged two past Presidents and introduced them both to the new member I recruited after a horrible thing happened to me in my dream… So I suppose the nightmare turned into a good dream. When I woke up I had to check to make sure it was still just a dream… I don’t remember my dreams but this one was way too real!
The other positive out of this dream is that I now want to take kick boxing or some type of self defense exercise class… In my dream I wasn’t able to fend off an attack until my awesome support network jumped over the light rail train tracks and helped me take pictures of the attacker in my nightmare… Yep, super duper weird nightmare that led to good at the end. The attacker was captured by the police and enough evidence was given to keep him in jail so he couldn’t hurt anyone else for a long while. Still weird how much of this dream I remember… yep, I even checked my phone to make sure it wasn’t real as in my dream I had taken pictures of the attacker on my phone. So very strange but I am awake and I have a whole day in front of me… Maybe I will find a kickboxing video to start my morning off on a better note.
My Grandma Cannon and I were recently having a conversation and she reminded me to look for the positives – turn my negatives into positives. I think she was in my brain helping to make this nightmare not so bad as in the end I got hugs and a new Jaycee member out of the weird dream. Now if only in reality I could find that lovely lady I met and make her a Saint Paul Jaycee. Anyone know how to do that I don’t know who she is or how to contact her… I guess I better work on my skills as a future recruiter… get the contact info so you can encourage them to join and show up! And now time to go grab my grateful journal and really get this day kicked off on a better note! Have a great day and remember to hug the ones you love tightly!
