I remember back when I was a little girl. I always had bad dreams. I remember just about every night, I would wake up in tears and go to my parents room. I would stand on daddy's side of the bed and stare him awake. He would let me get in the bed and he would cuddle me until I dozed off then I would have to go back to my room. 

Mom would place a Bible under my pillow at night and told me it would keep the bad dreams away. I had less nightmares but would still have them. I’m sure they tried everything to keep me out of their room. They finally got where they would lock their door at night. I remember standing on the outside of it crying until one of them would come tuck me back into bed. I was not spoiled, I was absolutely frightened at night by my dreams. 

I still dream but they are not as scary anymore and I am now, what is called , a “Lucid Dreamer. Meaning I can control my dreams. I guess I fought them long enough to have this power. When I am having a dream, I know I am having a dream and can control the outcome. Most of the time I wake up a soon as I realize I’m dreaming. Other times I can make a bad dream a good dream just by realizing it’s not real. Some Lucid Dreamers can decide on what thy want to dream about. That would be pretty cool. If I could do that, I would go on vacation every night. 

I am debating on keeping a “Dream Journal”. It would be a great way to jog my memory and learn what’s going on in my mind. It could also be weird and comical. I mean, last night I dreamed a baby Elephant jumped on me while my husband was chasing a chipmunk that was tearing up the yard. Yea, that’s way out there. But I also have some serious dreams. Vivid dreams that I can’t seem to get out of my mind. Sometimes I have good dreams and do not want them to end. It would be interesting to write all of these dreams down. I would also like to know if I have the same dream more than once or if any of them come true in the future. 

Have you ever heard of a dream journal? 
Do you think it would be a good idea?

I’m Still Here

In case your wondering,  I’m still here. I think this has been the longest I’ve ever gone without writing a post. 

Blogging is on mind every day but I have had trouble finding any time to sit down and post. I have to be in the mindset. My life is crazy right now. 

I work 12 hours a day a few times a week. I work in an accountant office full time from 9-5 then head to my side job at a department store after I get off and work til 9 at night. 

The side job started out as a “temporary seasonal job” during Christmas and somehow I’m still here. In fact, I’m working a slow and boring position tonight and I am currently typing this post from my cell phone while greeting customers at the same time. Now that’s multitasking! 

I tried to quit but they asked me to stay and just fill in when someone lays out. Lately that’s been a few nights a week and almost every weekend. When I finally get time at home, I spend it cleaning and doing laundry. then I zonk out. I need to find time for myself again.

When I get home tonight I have to jump on the phone and do a call in to the home shopping network and share my success  story with Nutrisystem.

It’s been over 5 years now and they still ask me to share it which I enjoy in hopes it will inspire someone. 

Meanwhile, I’m trying to get it together and get back to blogging. I’m trying to find myself in this thing called life.
