Someone I know had a dream where the um,…..potty situation was dire.
I mean….they dreamt that they really had to go.
They had to go….but the bed wasn’t the place for going….for going.
Going to the potty.
In the bed.
So the statement, in their head, in the dream, was amended to ….”I better get there”.
When you think about it, our dreams must be saying a lot about what’s going on inside of us….deep, deep down inside.
Sometimes, they’re a warning.
It’s something telling us, “you better wake up….NOW!! Don’t potty in the bed”.
Not always….usually it’s something better than that.
It’s not always about peeing the bed.
Maybe it’s just knowing the difference between feeling that you have to go….and knowing what you have to do to get there.
It’s not just going….it’s knowing where to “get”.
It’s knowing where to get….to.
Going is easy….getting to the right place is hard.
But….isn’t that what a dream is for? To help us know that it’s time to go….and help us imagine what we need to do to get there?
And….it’s not always about peeing the bed, either.
Sometimes it’s about something a lot more important than peeing the bed.
That is deep as heck.
