Once upon a dream…

Some say dreaming is essential to mental, emotional and physical well- being

 “A possible (though certainly not proven) function of a dream to be weaving new material into the memory system in a way that both reduces emotional arousal and is adaptive in helping us cope with further trauma or stressful events.”

Thoughts, regrets, desires, happiness and sadness. Every bottled up emotion is released when I dream. Dreaming paints a picture my mind doesn’t allow me to paint when I’m awake. (The beauty behind the madness) 

With every dream I remember I researched the meaning the next morning. Last night I dreamt my hair grew very long and I was surprised about the length of my hair, but I was also happy with the way it looked. I google the meaning and the results I received was soothing but eye opening. Dreaming about hair can mean a lot of things. For me, some says when you hair grows your confidence has grown too. 

Reading the information about my dream made me reflect on my past. I am grateful for where I am and the confidence I have today. Looking back, my self esteem was low and I just wanted to be perfect. I would look up to other people that I thought had a “perfect life” and wanted to be exactly like them. Not realizing no one is perfect and everyone has obstacles to face on a regular day basis. 

Today I stand tall and proud with confidence and pride. I realize it is okay to make mistakes, it is okay to break down and cry. What makes it not okay is if you continue to make mistakes and not try to improve, if you continue to break down, cry and not pick yourself up and look at the positive side of the situation. 

Believe in your dreams, follow your heart, and trust your instincts.
