The light went out

I woke up Wednesday morning after having a troubling dream. When I looked up the meaning of the dream online it stated that my dream was “alerting me to something in my waking life that has not yet surfaced,” and “was a clear warning about something bad happening.”

When I woke up that morning I was thinking about my dream; I had just dreamt of a multi colored snake, slithering everywhere. Because I had such a clear and vivid image of this snake on my heart and mind upon waking, alarm bells started going off. I knew deep down that this was not a good dream.

I got chills down my spine after reading the interpretation of the dream because it said that the dream was a “clear warning.” Everything about this dream was clear. Sometimes dreams are fuzzy and haphazard but not this dream, it was very obvious, the colorful snake was center stage and brightly lit.

The meaning of the dream surprised me because nothing troubling or stressful was occurring at the time. So I just figured I would wait and see but really did not thinkn much more about it.

I believe that I found out that very day. At work that day we were informed that all workers would be required to take a mandatory annual flu shot starting in the fall of 2017. Which means if I do not get the shot then I do not have the job, which means that all the time and effort that I took to get my degree and all the creativity and heart and soul that I pour into my job presently… is hinged upon my willingness to get a shot.  I was floored… and then remembered my dream.

I heard of policies like this being forced upon people but hoped that it would never befall my workplace. Well, it did, and at this moment in time, 2.5 days later, I am still stunned and the jovial life which normally resides inside my heart is now nothing but a whimper.  I do not know if I will EVER be the same, this blog will never be the same.

This is not a good thing. I am not sure what I am going to do because I cannot take the flu vaccine. I took the hepatitis B vaccine 16 years ago and because of the side effects I decided I would not take any more vaccines. Well, the world has changed since the year 2000 and I am wondering where my freedom went.

In the future I am afraid the general public will be forced to take vaccinations as well. This is not good at all. I DO NOT let people near me. No needles, no pharmaceuticals, nothing, and I am doing just fine. The heartbreak is that they have crossed the line that meant so much to me. They have invaded my Being and NOBODY is saying a thing about it. This is wrong.

I am not sure what I am going to do. Retiring next year would be premature. I have some dividend income but not enough. I would like to earn $1000 per month in dividends but I am not there yet, I need more time!  I need a little more time…

Hi I am 44 years old and started dividend investing in 2015 at the age of 41. This blog provides an example of portfolio changes and dividend growth and compounding. It is very exciting to witness the changes on a weekly basis. My goal is to partially retire within the next three to five years by living frugally and building up my portfolio into a mini pension to supplement and support my frugal lifestyle. I am interested in vegan food, biking, music, exercise, nature, photography, gardening, writing, travel, and investing. I daily wish to be able to have more time to do these things yet I am sadly torn away as I head off to work each day...
