What the Dreamer Dreams (part 12)

Friday, December 24, 2010

(GIT of Dreamer's future and Trent are flying through the early morning sky back to Trent's Apartment complex. Trent is completely drained)

GIT: Make decision to change. Your life not bad now. It can be so much better though. Less burden. More freedom.

(They land about 15 to 20 feet from Trent's building)

GIT: Take what we've told you. Think about it. Let it make difference in your life so you can make difference in others' lives. Make decision to start really living.

Trent: (barely awake, mumbles) Thanks.

(Trent starts walking back toward the building)

GIT: Oh, and Trent!

(Trent turns around toward her)

Merry Christmas!

Trent: You as well.

(Trent continues to door takes his keys out of his pocket as he approaches the door)

(GIT of Dreamer's future watches Trent enter his apartment as the Ghost of Dreamer's past and Joey come over to her and stand on each side of her)

GIT (leans over to GODP and whispers): What you think? Is good?

Ghost of Dreamer's Past: (with quiet confidence) He'll be fine.

Joey: (nods in agreement) Yeah, just fine.

What the Dreamer Dreams (part 11)

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

(Trent and GIT of Dreamer's Future sit on the curb outside of the Steak and Shake)

GIT: I tell you future.

If you continue to try to control every situation and circumstance, you will always feel as though you don't have enough control while others will feel like you are too controlling.

If you never let friends and family know your pain and struggles, they will never be able to be there for you.

If you don't let people be there for you, you will never have strength to be there for people.

If you continue being angry about situations and conflicts that you can't resolve, you will always be angry.

If you continue to see relationships as possible threats and heartaches, you will never enjoy blessings of them.

If you are always scared to make mistake you will always avoid opportunity to truly succeed.

If you don't overcome fear of groups, you will always have limited social life.

If you continue to compare yourself to what you were in past, you will never be what you should be in future.

If you continue to hide behind words and jokes, that is all you will ever be to people both Sparkfriends and RLFs.

If you continue to let numbers run your life, then you never will.

If you continue to view God as callous judge and untrustworthy authority, you will never truly see Him as Lord and Savior.

If you keep looking at 8-10 pounds you have to lose, you will never remember 40-45 you lost.

If you continue to let potential setbacks, mistakes and failure keep you from trying new things, you will never enjoy adventure of new things.

If you continue not addressing issues in your life, they will not get addressed.

If you continue to use food as comfort, you will never be comforted.

(pauses. looks Trent right in the eyes)

You want to see future based on your life now? I show you.

(projects an image of Trent sitting at his computer on SparkPeople as he ages twenty years in a matter of seconds. Never moves from the computer)

That will be you. Never going anywhere.

(Trent is absolutely speechless)

It's a lot to process I know.

Trent (completely drained): Can I go home now?

GIT: Sure

(To be continued)

    Good job TD.. these are all important things to realize... and hard lessons to learn. Sometimes when we have been hurt very badly in the past, we work so hard to prevent from being hurt again that we miss the life that is going on around us.

What the Dreamer Dreams (part 10)

Monday, December 20, 2010

(Trent walks into the Steak n' Shake. It's empty. A waitress walks out from the kitchen. She appears to be in her late teens/early twenties. She speaks with a Russian accent)

Waitress: Hello.

Trent: Hi! So......You're the ghost of Dreamer's future, eh.

Waitress: Not ghost, GIT

Trent: Huh?

Waitress: GIT, not ghost.

Trent: What's a GIT?

Waitress: It's Ghost in Training. Haven't finished training program yet.

Trent: I see. So...you're the GIT of Dreamer's future.

git: (smiles) Da!

Trent: And you work at a Steak and Shake

GIT: Da. GIT is internship. Being waitress is job. But I'm done for night.

Trent: So, you're probably going to drag me to some future time where I can see how I'm going to regret what I'm doing today, no?

git: nyet. is not necessary.

Trent: How do you mean?

git: What do you think is future for you? You keep doing same thing. Nothing change. What do you think future will be?

Trent: (sigh) This is going to be a really long night.

GIT: Perhaps. Would you like something to eat?

Trent: Sure.

What the Dreamer Dreams (part 9)

Saturday, December 18, 2010

(Trent and Joey are flying in the Camaro )

Trent: So, emphasize general health

Joey: Yup

Trent: Come up with a motivation that's relevant to my life today and make the scale a partial measure of my health, but not the main litmus test.

Joey: Check.

Trent: And figure out what my purpose is on this planet.

Joey: Yeah, You're probably not going to get all that done this weekend.

Trent: Probably not, no.......Are we flying home at this point?

Joey: Nah, I'm dropping you off at a Steak n' Shake. That's where you will meet the ghost of Dreamer's future.

Trent: It's like 4:00 am. Are you sure that the place will be open?

Joey: With all due respect, this is a dream.

Trent: Right right.

Joey: Besides do you want to be talking to a ghost in the middle of a crowded restaurant? People will think you're crazy.

Trent: Meh, most people already think I am. Besides, I still have the bluetooth headseat that Past gave me for such a predicament.

(Camaro lands outside of a Steak n' Shake that appears to be open but completely empty)

Joey: Alright we're here

Trent: Thanks man, for everything
(gets out of car)

Joey: No problem. Remember make a goal for the today and future, not the past!


Trent: Gotcha

(Trent closes door walks toward the S&S. Car takes off into the air, turns Northeastward and flies off)

(To be continued)

  


What the Dreamer Dreams (part 8)

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

(Trent and Joey leave the diner and are walking down the street)

Joey: So why are you here?

Trent: Because you wanted breakfast?

Joey: (rolls eyes) No, life in general. What's your purpose? Why do you get up in the morning? Who or what are you living for? Why are you here?

Trent: Honestly....I don't know. (under breath) lecture starts in 3..2..1..

Joey: Nah, no lecture. I think that that's how most people are.

Trent: Really?

Joey: Yeah, really. Did Past do the graveyard thing with you?

Trent: Sure did.

urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=3828583


Joey: A purpose in life is crucial. Most people get by when the expectations are clear. When they're in school or right out of it. As they get older, they get married, buy a house, they have children.....their book kind of writes itself.

Trent: Yeah, I've seen that in my friends.

Joey: Who knows, maybe that will be you.

Trent: Yeah, maybe

Joey: But what if it's not?

Trent: (No response)

Joey: When they get derailed in their life (flunk out of school, lose their job, get divorced, fail at a business, kid rebels, etc.), they sometimes metaphorically die. They fall down. They're scared to get up. They don't know how to. They don't even know where to begin. They wonder if it's even worth getting up if they might just fall again.

What do you need to do to get up?

Trent: Good question. No idea.

Joey: Think about it. (pats Trent on back) Hang in there.

Trent: Thanks.

Joey: You're religious, right?

Trent: Depends on your definition of religious.

Joey: Look, I'm not one to give much advice on this kind of stuff......but you might want to start talking to God again. This time a little more honestly. And listen to him.

Trent: Perhaps

Joey: Think about it.

Trent: Will do.

(they come back to the Camaro)

(To be continued)

    Wow Trent, I've just read all your entries since I was last on here, and it seems like I missed a lot. But it seems like you've made a lot of progress with heading in the direction that you want to be. I am proud of you for writing all this down, and grateful that you chose to share it with your friends.

I can't wait to read some more!
