Have you ever dreamt that you were a chicken wearing a pin striped suit to work and they would not let you in because your tie was the wrong color?
Or dreamt that you went to see a hypnotist to cure you of the compulsion to visit hypnotists?
Whilst at the hypnotist you asked him also to cure you of your fear of heights? He did so; and when you woke up you were on top of the cupboard?
No? Never had such dreams?
Well, neither have I.
My dreams tend to be memorable. Last week I dreamt that I was in a marshmallow factory, a bit like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book by Roald Dahl.
Anyway ... I dreamt I was in a marshmallow factory and when I woke up I'd eaten the pillow.
I remember being told off in the morning for ruining the pillow!
The best dreams of course are those that inspire us to greater things. They can be dreams we have when asleep or indeed something we think about when awake and mull over in our minds and spur us into action.
Many a great idea started with a day dream, an inspiration, a word of encouragement ...
The ideal dream is to make life better for someone else. It need not necessarily be a big thing that you do. Perhaps a kindness to someone. A smile. A helping hand.
For when our time is at an end, we should not be remembered for who we have been, but for what we have done.
