(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?
(To be continued)

(Trent and Joey are flying in the Camaro )
Trent: So, emphasize general health
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.
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 closes door walks toward the S&S. Car takes off into the air, turns Northeastward and flies off)
