Last night, I had the most awful dream, that a friend who has been unwell, was pushing himself to the limit and not letting himself get better, had a car crash. It felt so real. In the dream, I found him all mangled, and lifeless. After months in hospital, it was time for him to get out, but there was no-one to look after him, as he had literally no-one in his life. No-one knew what to do, and no-one felt it was their responsibility. I started to cry in my dream because I felt for him. Then, the tears streaming down my face woke me up. I was completely shakened. It felt so real. The pictures in my dream were so real. It took moments before I realised that it was just a bad dream.

I don't know if you experience nightmares that are really realistic, but the few times I have, it really affects me.

I know that they say that there is messages behind your dreams that people should look at. As I put some thought into that when I walked around the park this morning with my dog, I realised that this did not mirror me as I have a big, loving family, so it wasn't meant in that way. Then I looked behind it a bit further. Maybe its about control. Perhaps the underlying message is that we cannot control the outcomes of our life or our work, no matter what we put in place. That sometimes, things happen and decisions are made for us. No matter how much money we have, or how determined we are, we cannot write our own path to perfection.

My message out of this bad dream was "that life is out of our control and we will never know what tomorrow will bring'.
