Dreams remind us we're on a journey. Awake. Alive. Always being held.
Contentment is not obsessing with the future -- the day you'll finally get the perfect job or perfect spouse or perfect child or house or car -- because life is best lived in the present.

Dreams play a significant role in The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkein's multi-part fantasy story written in the first half of the 20th century. The dream elements become muted in Peter Jackson's film adaptation, but in the novels they serve as an important source of insight for the characters.
Though the need for sleep has been a constant throughout human history, how we feel about it has gone through dramatic changes over the years. We're now in the process of renewing our estranged relationship, especially as science, in the last two decades or so, has validated much of the ancient wisdom about the importance of sleep. Now that we have the means to get, relative to most of human history, the most unprecedentedly blissful sleep ever, we should allow ourselves to enjoy it. We live in a time in which we're plugged in and hyperconnected, often from the moment we wake up until the instant we drift off. Let's savor and safeguard sleep, not just for its performance benefits but for the special way it allows us to connect with ourselves. During the daytime technology allows us to travel across distance and space, but during the nighttime our dreams allow us to travel across time, spanning and connecting different parts of ourselves, allowing our senses of intuition and wisdom to flourish.

If we just embraced the fact that many things we want in our lives and our careers really take a lot of hard work, we'd enjoy the process so much more. Stop resisting the hard work and embrace it. Chances are that your friend who has it "easier" is working her toosh off and would tell you so if you asked.
I can't help but think that the false idea that I had to follow some popular societal protocol for my life choices instead of following my heart had something to do with it. I must ask: Are those who are creative more prone to anxiety because of this?
