I've been keeping a dream journal on and off since 2001 and have learned that you must write down your dreams immediately. If you snooze or try to remember them and record them later, you will forget. Even if you don't forget the entire dream, you may forget relevant details that provide important insight into the dream's meaning. I've had about three dreams this week that I didn't record. All three days I woke up and hit snooze, without taking the time to write down what I remembered. When I awoke again, the dreams had faded.
I vaguely remember that my forgotten dreams involved work and/or Ricky, but I cannot remember anything more than that. I am going to focus more on being cognizant of dreaming and writing them down. I've found that the more you write down your dreams, the more often you remember dreams to write down. It's just hard to focus on dreaming when you are heartbroken and tired.
