~~Every night when I drift off to sleep I’m transported to a world called Dreamland. In Dreamland anything is possible. There is only one controller of dreamland and that is myself. This is where I come to make peace with myself and the others I’ve wronged.  The scenery in Dreamland is controlled by my imagination. It’s a good thing that my imagination has no limits. Dreamland is based on peace not destruction. Self-motivation is the key to unlocking the true power of Dreamland. Without self-motivation Dreamland doesn’t exist.  Once you’ve obtained true power anything is possible in life and death. The creative possibilities are endless and the only boundaries you’ve got are the one you set for yourself.  That does bring a question to mind. Why would you want to constrict your imagination? The only reason I can think of is that you’re afraid of might happen. If you were to break the chains of repression and casted aside others doubts. Well that is perfectly fine if you don’t want to do that, but don’t think that you will ever unlock Dreamland with that attitude.
 The best way to unlock Dreamland is to believe in yourself, or you could unlock Dreamland by cherishing your childhood memories.  If you never give up on your childhood you will always be filled with childlike wonder. You should treasure the moments you had as a child. The children of today are growing up to fast. They don’t stop to smell the roses, and before they know it’s gone. Dreamland is a place of hopes and dreams. Dreamland is the place where the keys to life are located. You need find these keys and keep holding on to those cherished memories. The keys to life are only the first step. The second step is unlocking your imagination. By unlocking your imagination you can make Dreamland more beautiful. This will also keep Dreamland sacred.  Don’t even think that this is going to be easy. The journey your about to embark on is anything but easy.  The more you strive for greatness the harder it’s going to be to keep a positive attitude. Now you have to contend with negative thinking. Negative thinking can be disastrous to Dreamland.
 Don’t panic just yet because negative thinking can be avoided. To avoid negative thinking, think positive. If you think positive all the time there is no room for negative thoughts.  There is more persistent problem in Dreamland than negative thinking that is nightmares. Nightmares are a continuous threat to Dreamland. They’re the combination of your fear and doubts. Nightmares attack and destroy your good dreams. They have to be dealt with or they will become out of control. Their task is to overwhelm you and make you suffer. This is why you need to deal with them. I know that dealing with your own fears and doubts can be scary. Dealing with nightmares is going to take courage. The best way to deal with nightmares is to face them head on.  Luckily you don’t have to do this alone. Your friends and family can lend their support. You’re going to need that support when you stumble and fall in your journey. This eliminates the option to give up by encouraging you to go on. By never giving up, and never straying the path to victory you can conquer fear.  Accepting it is not conquering it.
 Your probably wondering where all these nightmares come from. Well the answer is simple they come from Nightmare City the darkest part of Dreamland. All your fears and doubts come to Nightmare City to congregate. Nightmare City was built on dread and can’t be destroyed. Dread is the only thing you can’t get rid of in Dreamland. The darkness lurking in Nightmare City is something that you don’t want any part of. This is one area of Dreamland that you won’t be gaining entry to. For one the darkness in Nightmare City is too much for any person to handle. The good news is that the confidence you gain by dealing the nightmares that escape helps you keep the others at bay. Remember your nightmares aren’t stupid. They leave the stupide up to you. Once a nightmare is dealt with they’re gone unless you let them come back. You see battling these nightmares doesn’t just build confidence it builds character to. Character is the way people see you in the real world.
 The last thing you will gain in Dreamland is faith. Faith is the everlasting belief in yourself. Trust me you’re going to need all three in order to keep Dreamland safe and secure. Confidence is want you gain by facing your nightmares. That in turn helps you build character allowing people to see you in a different light. Overtime you begin to have faith in yourself and your capabilities. The road ahead is a long bumpy one. Therefore, don’t be ashamed to ask for help.  I hope you’ve enjoyed this uplifting advice. Goodnight until we meet again in Dreamland.
