My Dream Journal

Decent Essays
One of the best things I've done in my life is that I've constantly kept a dream journal. When I was only 14, I became interested in what dreams meant and ever since then I've taken my dreams very seriously. I use my dreams to help me understand what is going on in my life and what I need to do going forward. If you are not currently keeping a record of your dreams, let me list the reasons why you should take this dream journal challenge and start!

5 Reasons To Keep A Dream Journal

1. Others Can't Interpret Your Dreams For You

Everyone wakes up from time to time and wonders 'what did that dream mean?'

There are different places online you can go to get help to interpret your dreams. For instance, you can check out Dream Moods, type in 'ex-boyfriend' and get a pre-written response on what it means to dream about an ex-boyfriend.

Some of the interpretation is pretty good, and I'm not saying that it might not be an accurate interpretation for you. However, there is a good chance that it's not. The dream may not just about your ex-boyfriend (or whatever you dreamt about) and some generic interpretations. In fact, there may be something else in the dream, such as a place or feeling, that is the real focus of the dream and why you are having it.

When you keep a dream journal, you can write down all those little parts of the dream that make up the whole, and as you go over your dream you may find that the dream is more about something else than what you originally thought.
