My realization preceded the dream of last night. Something that really caught my attention was the lifestyle goals that I stopped writing some time ago. I started focusing so much on process that the material possessions, the status symbols, the enjoyment of that part of my nature is largely unaddressed. I took a moment last night to understand that me realizing a dream was also validation for my unhealthy attitude toward others. I let that go, the ego can be a burden. My pride was attached to this elite attitude, largely because I hadn’t quite understood how to express the feeling in better ways.
