Dreams are powerful.

Last night I had a variation on a recurring dream about a regret from my past and it affected me all day. I was out of sorts. My heart was a bit heavier than usual. I felt weak. Certain songs would stir up stronger emotions in me than usual.

It’s hard to shake this type of feeling. Even now, fourteen hours after I woke up the effects of the dreams are lingering—slowly dissipating. Tomorrow will be better. It always is. The brain needs a rest—a clean break from today’s consciousness and tomorrow’s.

But what happens if I have the same dream tonight?
