Hey everyone! This short piece is my response to The Daily Post here on WordPress: To Sleep, Perchance to Dream. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.
Dreaming is an affordable way to fulfill one’s richest desires-be it material or not. In waking hours we might allow ourselves this privilege, which to some is perceived as luxury. As we set adrift, to sleep, perchance to dream, the luxury might even strike us as indulgence. Every night as I take myself to rest, I wonder if there was anything I missed doing. It can be a struggle between feeling the need to sleep and wanting to resume activities. I don’t usually take too long to give in to slumber once I’m down for the night. It’s more a matter of allowing myself to realize if I couldn’t accomplish what I wanted during my usual waking hours, why fight rest instead of allowing it to help all my tomorrows in becoming better ones?
