I am not a huge fan of my brain when it comes to bad dreams. I usually tend to get stuck in a loop of waking up to stop the dream and going back to sleep, where the dream starts over. I usually have to do something so I will break the cycle. So I am writing this at 5:30 in the morning, in an attempt to clear my mind.

I’m going to try to go back to sleep and finish this in the morning.

Now, much later in the day, I can actually focus enough to write clearly. It isn’t common for me to have bad dreams, but when I do they tend to haunt me the entire night. The latest was particularly devious, tricking me into thinking I had actually woken up, when I hadn’t. I think the worst part is that dreams like this often inspire me to think about my past and things that have happened. I’m very sure I did not handle every situation in my past in the best manner, and that bugs me.

Too often I wish I could go back and change things that happened. Sadly that is not possible. Keep looking forward.
