A CASE OF BAD DREAMS
a couple months back i wrote about my fear of dropping the ball in a pretty personal post. these days, i have been dealing with some very unpleasant sleep sessions. i know we all have bad dreams now and then…but what happens when they become much more frequent?
i like to think i am pretty good at multi-tasking, and to be honest that’s probably the only reason that i am able to juggle my two businesses at once…because i can easily jump from one task to the next. and listen, i am not really the girl that likes to sit around and complain about my long to-do list or how many emails i have to answer…because not having any emails to answer or anything on my to-do list sounds a little scary and i’d much rather be working than bored. so i am grateful for that. these overwhelming task lists (normally) don’t stress me out too much during the day…but they sure show their effects on me in my dreams.
i remember when my dreams used to be fantastical and, well, happy. and lately i have been dreading falling asleep some nights. for example, the other day i dreamed that i was forced to teach blogshop in a pool…and the projector wouldn’t work…and some of my students couldn’t swim…and besides that, it was just really hard to teach 25 people under 6 feet of water. last week i had a dream (a variation of this one actually happens a lot) that i accidently left all my luggage on the other side of security, and i was running as fast as i could to find it, but the airport turned into a maze and the TSA guards made me get a giant shot in my arm every time i wanted to pass back through security. very random (and stressful). or how ’bout the one where i was late for a meeting and i found a gorilla in my bathtub…and it wasn’t a friendly gorilla either. and of course there’s that classic teeth falling out dream that occurs every month or so, which supposidly means wealth in your future or a bad change is coming? i really can’t remember which one (but i’m just gonna hope for the first option).
i think i need a dream doctor? or maybe one of those funny waterfalls that go next to your bed that make you feel all zen at night. do you go through certain months where your dreams are full of stress?
gosh i wish i had some of these dreams in a video that i could playback. that gorilla one would actually be pretty hilarious to watch. this is the part where you may be thinking…man, this chick needs therapy. and who knows, maybe you’re right! but i’m just hoping this is a phase because i really miss the dreams where i was time traveling or doubling as a secret agent spy.
