Consequences of Dreams

Updated on March 1, 2015

I am currently working on my 1st novel and looking for feedback from you guys so I know what the people are interested in! Hope you enjoy and keep following!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Living hundreds of lives, meetings thousands of people, I have had more experiences then I wish to even mention. The best and the worse I would have to say are waking up from a nightmare or a dream.

When you wake up suddenly after a nightmare to realize that it was in fact just a nightmare can surprisingly be one of the most relieving feelings you have ever felt. Your heart may still be racing, your pillowcase drenched with sweat, but once that all passes you wake up with a more positive feeling for the day. You can walk outside and know the world isn't on fire, aliens didn't take over, or your loved ones are all okay. It may happen tomorrow but for now you can appreciate what you have and keep the pip in your step. Even if it does linger sometimes we find ourselves thinking good and trying to stay positive which either way you are still doing well.

A great dream on the other hand is a bigger battle. I'm not talking about having dinner with a movie star or finding gold at the end of a rainbow. The type of dream I am referring to is waking up and hearing the television going, bacon in the air, and pots and pans banging together. Then you pop out of bed, creep downstairs to surprise her and when you get there.....the T.V is off, no bacon is cooking, and the room is completely empty. The emptiness of the room starts to seep into your heart when you realize that it was only a dream. A dream that was still playing in your mind while you walked quietly down the stairs with all your senses still tingling. I sit on the sofa and try to figure out when was it that I woke? I get up again to touch the stove and check the cellar, maybe she is doing laundry. No one there. I sit back down on the sofa put my face in my hands and breath out......"Charlotte"
