My dream begins at night, I am in my car or at least what I believe to be is my car.
I am driving down the road of where I've never been before and I am texting on my cell phone. Because I was not paying any mind to where I was going I hit a little girl on a motor scooter, and the other two girls who were with her stopped and stared at me.
For some reason, I did not stop and I kept going. As if I were running from the fear of making a HUGE mistake, I ended up in the back of a parking lot and accidently wrecked into a yellow pole.. Weird.. I began to drive off into the night when I thought about it, I didnt want to go home so I decided to wander off across the river, I had to gross the GNO bridge in Louisiana.. One of the most dangerous bridges in the States.
As I got to the top of the upward slant I began to fall in my car to the bottomless pit of which I could see no bottom..
for some odd reason I did not freak out as I was falling, but instead just relaxed and went with the fall... Then I woke up from my dream.
At that point in my life I was going through a lot of mistakes I had made myself and was unable to forgive myself and was very unhappy for the longest time.
I'm not exactly sure how the next couple of days of my life went.. but what I do know is that it wasnt long that I finally gave in and forgave myself and my life has been better than ever..
