We Can Rebuild Her
Better than she was before… Better, Stronger, Happier. A Breast Cancer Journal

Material Girl

My dreams are typically downers: Dreaded relapses into severed relationships. Transportation tragedies. Elevator quirks.

But the past two nights have been lovely.

Wednesday brought me racks full of luxurious, dressy new clothing. Last night, a freshly built, spacious new home.

In both, I was resistant. Then accepting. Then thrilled.

My real-life interests are different. My home is small, ancient and cluttered. My favourite clothes reconstructed or just plain old.

But I loved the expansiveness. The excitement. The fresh new starts.

That’s four good dreams, now.
I think I’m on a roll.

    doing a little procrastination this morning – new clothes and a new house (according to my research) mean you are entering a new phase of life, with new opportunities and that you are more emotionally ready for these things. cool.
