Who Can Resist?

After moving to New Jersey, my husband logged on to satellitetvjerseycitynj.com to set up our satellite TV service. I feel like such walking- advertisement for the MTV hit reality show, “Jersey Shore.” Although my husband refuses to buy in to the entertainment value of this show, I find him being sucked into each episode just as much as I am. He will sit there and say that this show is ridiculous and lacking, but it is obvious that I am not twisting his arm to watch. I guess the appeal to this show for any thirty-something is the fact that we, as an age-demographic, are not so removed from this stage in our lives that we can no longer relate. In fact, watching this show allows us to escape to a time in our lives when we were free from limits and responsibilities of real adult life. It’s a time we would all love to slip right back into. Who wouldn’t love to work a meaningless job, go to the gym, tan, and then end the night drinking ourselves into an oblivion? I sure would! The last time my husband and I went out for a night of drinking, we were woken up at 7am by our two young, energetic daughters. This isn’t exactly the Jersey Shore way of life.

Dreams as Road Signs for Your Life

February 4, 2012 on 10:39 am | In Message Dreams | No Comments

Dreams are vehicles used by the subconscious mind to communicate with us symbolically. Sometimes there are words, but most dream content is visual.

When your subconscious mind knows that you are in trouble (or headed for trouble), you may not dream specifically of road signs. That would be almost too easy. On the other hand, you may.

Have you ever dreamed of a Stop sign, or a Wrong Way sign? If you ever do, pay attention. Your inner self is trying to tell you something important.

Often the same message is presented again and again in different images and situations until we “get it.” If you are in a situation that is dangerous or that is making you ill or unhappy—or both—chances are you have already had dreams that are, in effect, Street Signs, telling you to Stop, Detour (find a way around the problem), Slow, and so on.

For example, if you are trying to maintain a relationship with someone who is not really committed, who is really more interested in someone else, or who is married or otherwise committed to another, you intuitively know you are heading for trouble. So you might start having dreams symbolically act as No Trespassing Signs, telling you what your subconscious mind already knows, that you are trying to be somewhere that you do not belong.

On the other hand, if you are responsible for designing or maintaining roads or streets in real life, maybe you are just reminding yourself to include signage. If so, here is where to get the best Road Signs.

Helping Others Realize Their Dreams

Achieving our dreams can be very satisfying. But for some of us, helping others realize their dreams is even more so. We just may not know how.

Busy with family and/or making a living, we may feel that we cannot donate enough time to help others. We need to work.

You can make a career of helping others, and you do not necessarily need a lot of advanced degrees to do it. That is, you do not need to be a doctor, nurse, or psychotherapist to help others as a career. You can work for a nonprofit organization instead.

Nonprofit companies such as American Cancer Association, Girl Scouts, Goodwill, Salvation Army and many, many others that you have never heard off employ people in nonprofit careers. They offer all sorts of jobs, doing the same things you would do for a profit-making business, only instead, you are getting paid to help people.

Non profit jobs” range from clerks and warehouse workers to computer network administrators, human resources managers, and CEOs. Just about every job you could find in the for-profit sector is represented in the nonprofit world.

There is a special web site where you can look for nonprofit jobs in the nonprofit sector. It is run by a 20-year-old nonprofit management publication called The NonProfit Times, the leading publication in the nonprofit field. They are experts on nonprofit organizations.

So you can help others realize their dreams—dreams of health, education, safety, friendship, or almost anything you (or they) can think of—and  make a living doing it. If helping others full time is your dream, you should look into careers nonprofit and make your—and their—dreams come true.
