one shade of grey.

I had a strange dream last night…I had an identical twin, but at any given moment, I could switch back and forth between the two of us, kind of like John Travolta and Nicolas Cage in FaceOff…there wasn’t any violence in the dream, but I could see things from two very different perspectives.

The last few days have had some significant highs and lows…I’ve seen moments of joy and moments of tragedy. In therapy yesterday, I was challenged to focus on staying in “the grey area” – not getting too excited or too depressed. I feel like the dream I had last night is connected to this.

Black and white makes it easier for me to be “grey.”

My challenge to myself is to “get out of my head”, and not become so isolated, especially when I’m in a negative or depressed headspace. It was strange to see and have a conversation with my “twin” in my dream, but it also gave me an “outside perspective” of how I appear to and communicate with others when I’m in that frame of mind.

This week, my goal is simple….I need to “stay in the grey”….to not get too jacked up about exciting opportunities, and to not feel like I’m on “the express train to Suckville” when I’m feeling down.

How ironic that when I focus on not being so “black and white” about situations, I’m usually in the grey? Go figure.
