Waking Up With A Smile.

I woke up with a smile today!! Yeah, I was as surprised. Just before I was coming back to consciousness, bidding good bye to my unconscious or absolute unconscious, there was a light shy smile on my face. Yes, I could feel it all, almost know why I was smiling too. But just then I woke up and realized that I was smiling. How was it possibly even true? I barely smile awake, I mean to say, I laugh, a lot, but smiling is different to me and there I was smiling pretty smiles in my dreams, in my sleep. And just then fear gripped me for smiling and I stopped immediately and came back to reality. I woke up.


But it would be good if I could remember exactly why I was smiling about, what was so good, even if in my dreams that made me smile. Why couldn’t I have it in reality? What was it in my dreams? Why was it in my dreams? What was so fulfilling? Why did I forget it? I sure remember all the nightmares, so accurately, so precisely then why couldn’t I remember the one dream that I want to remember!!

      1. I think I will make up something, make up some thoughts or daydreams, and then sleep on it, so that at least I have a feeling, though a fake one that I had a good dream, and remembered it 🙂


  1. Have you ever woken yourself by laughing in your sleep? It has happened to me a few times.

    A waking smile does seem to be the carryover of a pleasant dream. Why can’t we remember though?

    I find the pleasant dreams often reside at a surface level. That means that focus on something else, a smile for instance, can easily pixellate them into nothingness.

    I’m like you though. I want to catch the pleasant dreams too, not just the harsher realities that lie deeper below the surface. I pray to remember them all, and for the most part that happens.

    But sometimes the dreams aren’t meant to be recounted. Sometimes they change us regardless.

  2. Your higher self is asking you to look within for that why. Keep trying to remember, ask your higher self for you to remember. Now you ‘know’ you can do it, it is still a part of you, it is only being blocked by whatever fear is holding us back. Find the why and the smile from your heart will come back and become a permanent fixture ❤

  3. I don’t remember when I woke up last with a smile on my face. Perhaps never, I guess. But I am glad that you are.
    I hope that stays for the rest of the day and ever.
    Take Care. And Happy Smiles.
