If you could be given the option to never sleep and also never be tired, would you take it if it meant you'd also never dream again?
Why does everyone keep asking me about dreams????
Okay, I know we aren't talking about my dreams for the future here, but still. It seems that every time I turn around I am reading something about dreams. Yes, I know. Someone is trying to get my attention on the subject. But frankly it scares me. I'm not ready yet. I actually have a draft of a dream post. Which is to say I have a title and a blank screen where the text goes. But it's a start, right??
Anyway, let's answer the question above for now and worry about my future dreams later (I promise, I will work on that post). If I could give up sleep and never be tired, would I do it and lose the ability to dream? Well, I think the answer is no. First of all, give up sleep?? It's my favorite past time! :)
Seriously though, no I wouldn't. I think sleep and dreaming are essential parts of what is is to be human. Think about the incredible things your brain comes up with when you leave it alone to do it's thing. Some are scarey, some are crazy, some are sad. Some are silly and happy, & some you can't even remember. But all are original and uniquely yours. Why would I give that up?
This week's writing prompt for GBE2 is "Oh No, Not Again" and I think it ties in well, since that was my first thought when I read the dreaming question. Dreams just keep coming up, and I know that God is telling me it's time to deal with them. And writing about them will help me to clarify what it is I am so afraid of. Why does just thinking about the future make me reach for my anxiety meds? I will write that post, I will work it through and face my fears. Just not this morning! :)
