"We have grown literally afraid to be poor. We despise anyone who elects to be poor in order to simplify and save his inner life. If he does not join the general scramble and pant with the money-making street, we deem him spiritless and lacking in ambition." ~William James

Me and My Big Mouth!

OK. I have dreams every night, and 9 out 10 times, they are really freaky. One of my all time least favorite reoccurring dreams is the incredibly annoying, and somewhat unsettling "too much gum in my mouth" dream. In this dream, I am trying to talk to someone, but I have gobs and GOBS of gum in my mouth. I'm pulling it out, but it's a real mess, and no matter how much I pull out, THERE'S MORE! Sometimes the gum sticks to my teeth and I feel it pulling my fillings out. And I always am wondering why no one seems to notice,and at the same time, I'm concerned about what they will say when they do notice. Strange, you say? Well, apparently it's not that uncommon! Check this out..."This is such a common recurring dream for so many people because it is commenting on a common behavior pattern so many of us have.....not being able to get the game out means you are probably holding your tongue and not speaking up about something you need to speak up about."

Another one of my not so favorite reoccurring dreams is that my teeth are falling out. Sometimes I spit out one or two at a time, sometimes in pieces, and sometimes I spit out handfuls of teeth a time. Well, as it turns out..."dreams about your teeth often symbolize your words. If your teeth are falling out then you have been having loose speech, speaking without thinking or gossiping, you have allowed something out of your mouth that should have remained in there permanently… like your teeth! If you are spitting out your teeth then there is something that needs to be said."

So, no more Mr. Nice Guy. I'm fixing to let it rip! Maybe then I can sleep well. :-)
