I'm driving too fast and my breaks keep going out!!

Ok its been a long time since..no not since I last posted, heavens knows I am so addicted to blogging its ridiculous, since I have dreams repeating over and over. When I was younger I had the same dream of my mom trying to chop my head off to put in a doll cabinet with porcelain dolls. Maybe I can share more on that later. In high school I had the same dreams of over flowing toilets. Then in college I had dreams where people were chasing me and I'd just start flapping my arms and fly away. Now I keep having dreams or rather nightmares of me driving with my kids and several other children in my suburban and all of a sudden the car just starts speeding up and I can't stop the car before running into something. Believe me I am slamming hard on the breaks but no slowing down. Think there is something to my dreams?

Since I asked...I do. I really feel like my life is just going by too fast and I just don't have time to slow down and enjoy the little things. But as cheesy as this may sound, I really feel that now that I have started journaling again, though its not in my typical journals with me complaining about my weigh...oh I can if you want, but this blogging/journaling sure has helped me stop, sit and think about all that is going on around me. There truly is something beneficial about recording your life stories, and I'm not talking about leaving behind a record for your posterity which is great in and of it self, but of allowing you the opportunity to reflect and regroup and plan ahead.

I know nothing about analyzing dreams--if I did I'd stop and analyze my recurring one about being out in nothing but well I'll call it my underwear!!! Have not been able to figure that one out ; )

I loved your comment about having the opportunity to reflect, regroup and plan ahead. Nice thought--thanks.

i love using my bloggy as a way of journaling. i journal more since i started a blog. it is too easy to forget about so many cool little moments (good and challenging) if we don't write things when they are fresh.

keep going.

and i am so addicted to it, too hon :)

its good to talk about dreams and be able to laugh at them. it can be frustrating to be IN them. have you ever reached the point in your dream that you realize you are sleeping? try it! you can start taking control of your dream and it is so FUN :)
