Dream Catcher

I usually remember my dreams when I wake up every single morning.  I'm not sure if that's unusual or not.  But by now, I have forgotten what my dream was about last night, but I always have really vivid dreams and feel like they are so real.  Jake sometimes remembers his dreams but not every morning.  The other night I dreamed about puppies. I was in charge of baby dog-sitting them and they kept running away and escaping. But somehow I always found them. What does that mean? 

Are we destined to get a puppy or maybe we shouldn't even think about it?

Jake and I were taking about what dreams mean this weekend and we decided that you can't always take them too literally. For instance, I always have the dream where I am in college and either (1) can't remember my locker combination {and I can't get my books out in time for class} or (2) I don't know where my class is supposed to be held, and therefore, I am lost and can't get to my class on time.

I think dreams are your mind's way of attempting to make sense of what's going on in your life and the results come out in all different ways.  When I am stressed about something I can tell because I keep having the recurring terrible college dreams. Maybe I should call them nightmares, and not dreams?

I was reading a book {I forget which one now} but it went into detail about how your personality affects your dreams and it got me thinking about being a constant worrier and how that probably negatively affects my dreams. I have noticed that If I do yoga breathing and read before bed, I am preparing myself for good sleep... and that helps me have good dreams. Let's hope for more dreams about puppies, scenic destinations, winning the lottery, etc.

  1. Was this after you saw Buster and Brody?! Also - remind me to think twice before asking you to puppy sit. Just kidding! :)
