Dreams; the one when you sleep and the other when you’re awake
Last week (and this week) was quite stressful because I’m on a one on one training with my new manager, plus all the errands I have to attend to.
I forgot when it was, but one of the things I dreamt of was it was a birthday party of my ex-girlfriend in a farm setting. It was actually somewhat like our province in Bulacan where there are farms and all. She had her birthday party in her house, usual bungalow house in Bulacan, but with bamboo trees around her house. It was a typical birthday party of a 10 y/o kid. I was surprised to see my high school classmates there; IN OUR HIGHSCHOOL UNIFORM. It seems that the party was in highschool time and space. She then showed me that she spent only 170php for the party that was in a plastic pack; “ready made party” it said on the label. I examined the pack and it seems pretty legitimate, and it was purple too. They then went outside for the games and they were laughing and playing like real kids again, in their highschool uniform, in a highschool time and setting, but they looked old.
It was still dark, early in the morning and we were outside Gold’s Gym Glorietta. When the glass door opened, I showed my Gold’s gym ID which I confidently showed; even if I haven’t paid for a long time. I just miss Gold’s gym that I want to visit the gym again. I went inside with several people already working out and running on the treadmill. I explored the 3rd floor and was surprised that they have an “improvised” rolling pin that I use at Eclipse for my back; somewhat metallic rolling pin-like. There were a couple of construction worker there who were fixing the boxing ring and were just resting. I then went on to work out at the abs machines and then I saw Carlos Concepcion, and woke up.
The other dream I don’t want to forget (and don't think I'll forget either); ever was dreaming of becoming good friends with Carlos Concepcion. We met before during a photoshoot with Men’s fitness magazine for the men’s fashion section, however, due to his “too young looking” face, the editor decided not to use his pictures for the said magazine. Anyway, we met at the streets and bumped into each other. He was nice enough to apologize and we talked. I opened up about him being the model we had a shoot with before and that’s were the “friendship” started. I also told him that we went to the same gym before and I reminded him that he always put the towel on his waist so low that the gay guys keeps on staring at him, and down there. He was laughing and he asked me if I was starting to, I said no, because I know him already. We sat there and kept on talking and sharing stories and I can remember a car parked near where we were sitting suddenly blew up and there was somewhat a shooting going on and suddenly, we were included in the shooting! Anyway, I’m just glad that in my dreams, I really felt we were really close friends, and that made my day.
On a more important note, I will always be thankful that my dream do came true; becoming a trainer, even if it was just a sub to my ex-manager. It seems everything is falling into place, me replacing her, then having my own class, and now, training our NEW manager. I know I still have a long way to go, I still have to master my competencies, but it’s a different feeling right now. This is also my first time to get the Top Position for the 1st Quarter. Like I said, I was just an average advisor before, and sometimes at the bottom, and I never thought that this dream will actually materialize. Plus, me loving what I do! It may not be like 100% but you feel great! Gaining almost 20lbs! The milk and eggs diet paid off! Then going to different places with husband also gave me a realization that these things are something that I need to be thankful of. Davao, Dos Palmas were just a bunch of letters before, but now, they are names of photo online albums.
Just like a dream, we will wake up eventually, and it’ll end. Sometimes, we wake up falling and sometimes it ends up a nightmare. It’s okay, because those things end up as well, and you just have to wait for the next exciting episode of your dream; whether you’re asleep or awake.
