Hey heeeey --
So apparently it's kind of rare for people to lucid dream. I, however, seem to do it pretty much every night. I have been dreaming like this for as long as I can remember... and I remember almost all of my dreams too. Super weird -- trust me, I know.
So for those of you who don't know what it means to lucid dream, let me explain. While dreaming, I recognize the fact that I am in a dream and have the ability to make things happen. That's not to say that I can dictate everything, but I am more in control than not. It wasn't until I brought this up to my therapist that I found out I was unique to some degree.
My mind never rests (thank you anxiety). Every time I fall asleep, my mind creates puzzles to be solved throughout my dreams. Some of these puzzles are bizarre yet very simple. Others are a little more complex and take me multiple nights over multiple years to "solve". I use that word lightly as the solutions in my dreams rarely make any logical sense; yet I know that I have finished what I was supposed to do by the end.
Not sure if there's anyone else out there that can relate, but it really is wild sometimes. It's almost as if my mind knows that there's still work to do at the end of the day and tries to figure out how to get it done even though I'm asleep. This cycle repeats because there is always going to be something else that needs to be done -- another work task, a new personal goal, you name it. Am I doomed to visit my little puzzle world every night for the rest of my life?
Yeesh... If so, I better get casted for Survivor, Big Brother, or the Challenge at some point because I'll be a puzzle beast. Consider this my application. *mwah*
