In Dream Town I was with a friend walking around my old neighborhood. She showed me her new shoes and asked, “Aren’t they great?”
I looked at her quizzically. “Why do you have baby feet?”
Seriously. She had shoes only a woman would wear but the feet of a baby. 🤔
Why is my friend showing up in my dream? Did she grow baby feet over night? Not likely. Did she get new shoes? It’s possible. Is there a hidden meaning in there for me? OF COURSE!
This friend of mine has had some serious hardships. A lot of what she has gone through has been deep and complicated. In fact, if she ever decides to pen a narrative about her life I hope she’ll commission me to be her writer. I think about her presence in my dream and I wonder – what’s my message?
I have things I need to work on in my life and I’m finally starting to be real with myself about it. Tired of sweeping it under the rug, pretending it’s not a part of me. Thanks to some major reflection, minor action, and a lengthy conversation with my friend who also happens to be an incredible coach, Danna, I’m understanding and validating my shit.
But what about those shoes? And those baby feet? Why did they stick out so clearly to me? It’s simple really. Let me put myself in my friend’s shoes. How is she tackling her life and her hardships? What is she doing to get herself the life she needs and deserves? Baby steps. 👣 she takes baby steps to get there.
Take baby steps today friends. Whatever that thing is you promised yourself yesterday you’d do today…baby step your way into that goal.
