So the other night I came up with my most fantastically awesome idea ever!!!
And then I woke up. lol. Well… sort of.
It was the middle of the night and I told my dreaming half-asleep-self that it would still be there in the morning… oh yes… and I believed myself!!! I actually remember saying… in my head… to my dozy self… that the idea in this dream was just too good to forget. And I went back to sleep.
Can you believe that?
So I didn’t get up and write it down.
And when I woke up in the morning… it was gone. Poof! Just like that! Right out of my slowly waking brain.
This isn’t the first time this has happened to me. My dreaming self seems to think I concoct my best ideas when I’m unconscious. It may be right.
But if these really are good ideas for the conscious world that my awake self actually lives in wouldn’t I be able to remember them in the morning? I do remember some of my dreams… usually the ones that are totally nonsensical or absolutely terrifying.
I think my sleeping self likes to mess with my awake self.
Maybe when I woke up in the middle of the night I wasn’t really awake at all!
Maybe I was just dreaming that I woke up!
Maybe I was just dreaming that I was asleep and dreaming about my most fantastically awesome idea ever!!!
Maybe I’m dreaming right now!
Good question! I’m starting to wonder.
So now there’s a note pad and a pencil in my night table so my dreaming self or my half-asleep-in-the-middle-of-the-night self can WRITE IT DOWN!!!
I kid you not. I’ve taken to mining my dreams for ideas. lol. Is that crazy or what? Hey… whatever works… right?
I can’t wait to start a post one day with the words “It came to me in a dream.” Sounds so literary… almost poetic don’t you think?
I just thought of something… if I ever see an idea written on that note pad when I wake up in the morning how will I be sure which one of me wrote it? lol.
Well, if it turns out to actually be my most fantastically awesome idea ever… I guess I won’t care.
And you all will be the first to know. Bet you can’t wait for that. lol.
I hope I’m not the only one this happens to. Have you ever dreamed an idea for a project?
Have a dreamy Halloweeny!
