Over the weekend, I had a dream. I was driving my car very slowly and carefully along a very rocky road. It was severely hampering my progress, and I could have been walking faster than I was able to drive. However, I came upon an intersection, where the rocky road met a well-sealed highway. I knew that as soon as I could get onto the highway, I would be able to put my foot down and drive the car like it was meant to be driven. As I was waiting for oncoming traffic before I could turn onto the highway, I woke up.
Dreams have very important and powerful symbology, and we can learn about our life from understanding our dreams. Please bare with me as I go through this very important dream for me, because there’s something special at the end of it.
To dream that you are driving a car, denotes your ambition, your drive and your ability to navigate from one stage of your life to another. Consider how smooth or rough the car ride is. Whether you are driving the car or a passenger, is indicative of of your active role or passive role in your life. Overall, this dream symbol is an indication of your dependence and degree of control you have on your life.
To see a road in your dream, indicates your sense of direction and pursuit of your goals. To see a winding, curvy, or bumpy road in your dream, suggests that you will experience many obstacles and setbacks in achieving your goals. You may be met with unexpected difficulties. If the road is dark, then it reflects the darker or more frightening choices which you have made or are making.
To see a smooth road bordered by green trees and flowers, denotes a steady progress and steady climb up the social ladder. If the road is straight and narrow, then it means that your path to success is going according as planned.
In my dream I was about to turn from the rocky (bumpy) road onto the smooth highway. This tells me that all the obstacles and setbacks I’ve had to deal with are about to disappear, and I’m about to turn onto the path (highway) to success. The car is my ambition, my drive, and the fact that I’m driving a turbo-charged performance vehicle in real life AND in my dream is not lost on me.
So that’s what my dream told me. Now for the very, very interesting part…
The day after I had my dream, I started a new contract as a Business Analyst. That was yesterday. Today, they promoted me to Service Desk Manager. And I’ve only been there 2 days.
Well, not even 2 days. I came down with a severe case of the flu on Friday (so severe, I had uncontrollable shivering and fever on Saturday night – I’ve never had shivering in my entire life, so this was quite concerning! But I got over it that night) and have been recovering ever since. However, as part of my recovery, I went in only for 3 hours yesterday, to get the formalities over and done with of starting a new contract. I went home around lunchtime and rested.
Today was almost the same, I was considering going home at lunchtime, but my boss told me that they were making me Service Desk Manager, and I’d have a couple teams reporting to me.
I’ve been in a state of excited, overjoyed shock ever since.
I’ve had many years of experience in the service desk environment. Service Desk Manager is something that I thought I would be good at, and once tried to get a job as, but I missed out ‘by that much…’ I haven’t had any opportunities since then.
So to discover today that they considered me worth putting into that role, AND after I’ve not put in a lot of hours yet, has been very surprising, and made me very happy.
I have no issues with it. I know I can fulfil the role exceptionally well, and do a great job of improving their services at the same time (as per the original role requirement). I’m just so very excited by how this has happened the day after I had that dream.
My future has changed today.
