I’ve had so much going on recently as ever so sorry about the lack of posts, again!
In the meantime, I want to bring attention back to dreams and nightmares because recently, I’ve been swarmed with nightmares. Despite my life heading in a good direction and looking forward to the future and my future, I seem to have some real anxieties and these are reflected in my dreams.
So last night, I woke up in a bit of a fluster due to a recurring nightmare I’ve been having at the moment and I’m doing my best to try and just get over it quickly but sometimes it’s hard to try and get on with my day. I’ve been told that I get really hot and sweaty, I breathe heavily, fidget, push and kick out as well as talk . Like I said in my previous post though, it’s all for overcoming your problems and fears. (If you haven’t read it already, this is Nightmares).
Separate from those nightmares, last night I had a dream that I was clenching my jaw so tight that I ended up actually having all of my front teeth fall out. Now, there’s an old wives tale that if you dream about having your teeth fall out, it means either you or someone you care about is going to die. I woke up and panicked and had to check my dream dictionary. I already knew that teeth falling out did not mean that I was going to die but it does mean something so what is it?
Researching on my lovely Dream Diary, it told me the real subconscious meaning as to why I was dreaming about my teeth falling out. These were my results.
Because of my fantastic Dream Diary, I was able to find out that I was evidently very anxious and worried about something; there’s something getting to me but what could it be? Well to be honest, it could be a couple of things. My feelings about certain people are changing and due to current events, I’m having to push them aside and try and focus on myself. Maybe it’s because I feel a little disorganised? Well I’ve now bought a day to day planner to try and strategically work out and achieve targets that need to be focused on and met by a set date. It’s working in some respects, for example I’m sticking to a new fitness regime which includes going on a decent run each evening. I’ve never really been a massive fitness freak but I’m hoping that a healthy body may mean a healthy mind and then maybe I can start to see results. Obviously that’s not the only reason why I’m doing it. I generally need to make sure I’m keeping on top of things anyway and so my body should definitely be on that list however some things are really slacking such as time to myself. I’m trying to make sure I keep up the hobbies that are important to me, particularly reading but it seems I do more shopping than anything else at the moment! I really need to stop spending so much money but sad Courtney results in a poor but (arguably) fashionable Courtney.
Since having this dream about my teeth falling out, I haven’t had another one and I’m hoping that means it’s because I’ve identified the problem, reviewed it and hopefully working towards resolving it.
To be honest, I’m not sure what this post was to achieve but I enjoyed writing it and seeing it written down. There’s something satisfying and revolutionary about writing down your problems whether it be in a diary, blog or post-it note. Always share your troubles, dreams and nightmares. After all, a problem shared is a problem halved.
I promise to try and fit a schedule in for more posts now. I’m sorry they’ve been slacking but hey, I have a day to day planner now!
Lots of love,
