Salam to all my readers.
Today I woke up quite early, wait, not quite but really early and it was 4.48 am when I looked at the clock. Truth be told, I never woke this early, even my mom was surprised at how early I woke up today. Now, before you judge me and assume that I'm bragging for waking up so early, let me tell you the real reason of why it happened.
I had a nightmare!!! Yes, I was having a nightmare and when I woke up, the images of the ghost in my dreams kept playing in my mind. I was sweating and I had a hard time trying to get back to sleep. Laugh at me if you want but I'm sure each and every one of you must have been in this situation before. It's not that I was so scared that I can't go back to sleep okay, please. Fine! I did feel scared, a bit. Who wouldn't be if you just had a nightmare. Duhh! I'm here not to talk about my nightmare, instead, I want to share with you guys the funny thing I did so that I could remain calm and try to get back to sleep.
First, I recited my prayers hoping that it could make me forget about the ghost's images. When I found that it didn't really work, I switched on the light but the brightness of the light made it even harder to sleep. I used to sleep with the light still on when I was a little and that was why I thought I could sleep if I turn on the light but clearly it is no longer apply at my age. As I was thinking what else I could do to get back to sleep, I noticed a copy of Galaxie magazine on my bedside table. I took it and read it until I heard azan Subuh from the nearest mosque. At that time I was like, kinda relief because finally the dawn is approaching and all of a sudden, the scary images inside of my head vanished.
So guys, if you are happen to be waken up by the nightmare you had, try to imitate my actions and see whether it works for you or not. Hehe. Until then, wash your feet before going to bed. Ciao!
