When I Dream, I Feel Like This. ~ Ayşe Ay

I often dream and when I dream, I feel like this:

Then suddenly, I fall onto the earth.

Real people, real life, love, competition, hate, revenge, joy, everything is there.

I remember that I am a human.

Then, something terrible starts to work: my incredibly strong memory.

I start to recall everything, my disappointments, my fears….

I try to protect that little child sitting on the moon.

I decide to be a realist, calculate every single possibility of my dreams , and become a pessimist.

At that point, I start to do yoga to find my real self who is full of love, joy and happiness…


AyseAyşe Ay is a hopeless dreamer, a dedicated dynamic  yoga student, an English teacher in Turkey and likes writing, especially for children.
