Childhood

I had lots of dreams as a child. Many nightmares, but most were very exciting. I couldn't get anyone else interested in talking about dreams though. Not my family or my friends. Most of them said that they don't dream. I looked forward to my dreams. They are a part of my life.

Turning point

I have always been interested in dreams. I don't know when it started. But I did read somewhere, after I was an adult, to write down your dreams and it will help you remember more of them. So I do. And have for years. And it works.

Definition

Dreams, to me, are a way of understanding what is going on in my daily life. They can explain something that I couldn't figure out in the daytime because of all the other stimuli. The can be a connection to God. Look in the Bible. It happened several times there. I would like to think that they are a starting point to explore alternative realities, but I'm not convinced of that yet.

Now

Dreaming makes me a more interesting person. At least to myself. It is an added bonus to loving life that most people won't even acknowledge. Dreams are definitely a part of my daily life. I look forward to going to sleep and having a dream, and am extremely disappointed if I wake up and realize that I either didn't dream, or that it was a boring dream. Yes, I pay much more attention to dreams now,
and hope that they mean even more than I think they do.
