I had a terrible nightmare about snakes. They were writhing in and out of my space. Honestly, they weren’t very big at all. But their presence in MY space was unwelcomed and evil, especially since it was dark, and one of them was poised ready to strike.
Honestly, I don’t remember much else about the dream except that my husband had to shake me awake. When i told him what my dream was about, he said, “Well, hop up on your unicorn and ride on out of there!” Suddenly, I couldn’t think of anything else except the unicorn, which was a grand thing because no longer was this evil presence able to hold on to me, and I was able to get back to sleep much easier.
Then, as I contemplated my day yesterday, and a few things got tougher than usual, i thought back to the unicorn scenario. What if I took this approach to difficult situations? I know life comes in cycles, highs and lows, and there will be snakes in my life. What if I redirect my thinking, reframe the situation, and think of something different which is not as scary, or creepy, or tough?
Moral of the story: When life gets tough,..hop up on your unicorn and ride on out of there!
ENJOY your day!
