Day 170: pinch me, I’m dreaming

19 Jun

I had a dream last night.

For some reason I was on my way to a basketball tournament.  I was teaming up with friends from high school to play in a tournament when I realized I didn’t have my shoes with me.  Not just any shoes.  My basketball shoes, the specific high tops I needed to play ball.

I didn’t have the right shoes!
Even worse I was wearing the silliest shoes possible for a basketball game, strappy sandals.

For a moment I just shrugged my shoulders and announced I wasn’t worried.  I would just buy a pair of new basketball shoes on my way to the game.

But them I stopped in my tracks.
Wait a minute!

I can’t buy anything this year because of The Promise 365.
What am I going to do???!!!!  The dream version of myself shrieked.

In the middle of agonizing over not having the right shoes, a friend walking next to me pointed out the bag on my shoulder and instructed me to look inside it.

The bag just appeared out of nowhere.

There wasn’t a bag in my dream at any moment before this one.  But my dear friend spotted this bag.  On my shoulder.  As if it had been there the whole time.

And guess what was inside?
My basketball shoes.

I have been pondering this dream all day.

Tonight, I finally came to terms with the fact that I don’t know what it means.  There is probably someone somewhere deep inside of me that understands it more than I ever will.

But, I will say this…
I’m not surprised that in my dream I had the perfect shoes at the exact moment I needed and not a moment before.

I’m starting to believe that life just seems to go this way when I take good care of my head and my heart, my body & my soul.

People, like bags, just appear in my life with exactly what I need in the moment I need it.  And, just like a pair of basketball shoes, things seem to magically be within my reach even when I don’t know where to look or how to find them.

It’s a pretty cool thing.
And I’m pretty sure it’s not just a dream.
