Looking up at the stars at night is magical. There is a different feeling with night compared to the day. Night feels as though wishes can be made and dreams come together when you sleep. Whereas in the day time, you feel awakened, do your normal routine and have your day interrupted by the day-to-day realities of what we know as a normal way of living.
It is interesting. Think about it, when you sleep, you dream. Sometimes more than one dream per night (maybe there are multiple dreams every night and we just forget most of them). Dreams are usually great (I hope you have mostly good dreams), when we wake up it can be hard to get out of bed, especially when you are so snuggly and have had an amazing dream. Imagine you wake up, widening your eyes slowly, making them bigger with each breath that you take in, and then reality starts to kick in. Aww it was only just a dream. Why?! 🙃
You realise its a new day. Being thankful for it of course but your dream world is much better than the awakened world. You have been awake for only a minute and already miss the dream world haha. Going about your day may mean having your regular meals, working or studying, spending time with family and sorting out your finances. When we think about all of our responsibilities and obligations, it can sometimes be overwhelming, making dreams something to look forward to ❤
Dreaming can be many things. Two in particular come to mind. The first thing is dreaming is great as it opens our minds to being creative. Exploring things that we may have never done in real life yet. You can fly in your dreams (one of my favourite things to do). You can even expand on your real life goals when you dream. I love to do this! Before I sleep I will write down my current goals, read over them and once I am dreaming, it usually becomes related to the goals I have been reading.
It is great, as it gives opportunity to think of ways to achieve my goals. When dreaming I sometimes discover new ideas such as a story or painting idea. It is awesome when this happens! The second thing is dreaming can be addictive. I say this because like with anything that you do excessively, it can be bad for you. Sleeping is great but if you do it too often it can make you lazing and keep you out of touch with reality. You may enjoy sleeping too much, that it impacts your day-to-day life poorly. Balance is key. Having a set amount of hours to sleep with an alarm scheduled should do the trick 😀
I am a morning person, preferring to be up before the sun to see the sunrise and then going to sleep after the sun sets. Yet, I do find night to be more magical than the day, and love laying on the ground under the stars. Maybe it is because ever since I was about 5 years old I would make a wish whenever I saw a shooting-star. Moments of watching stars at night are some of my favourite memories. The funny thing is, whenever I have made a wish from seeing a shooting-star, it has always come true. Has this happened to you as well?
Daytime is great for seeing nature which is magical as well but when it is night, it is just so different. I almost cannot put it into words. I guess its when the sun starts to set, you get to see the sky fade from a pinkish-orange to a purple-blue colour, then twinkling lights peek through as the night awakens. That’s it, it is the stars at night that make it magical and dreamy, as if you can do anything in life. Being in the dark, feeling as though you are to be guided by the stars, that they will grant you wishes and they will come true. That is magic ❤
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a starry night sky acrylic painting of a rabbit looking up at the stars. Viewing the stars at night always makes me feel happy and reminds me to keep going for my dreams. To dream big, stay positive and keep moving forward no matter what 🙂
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! The next time you see a shooting-star, make a wish. When you do, ensure that you believe it will come true by feeling like it already has. Breathe and let it go. You never know, it may come true when you least expect it. Have a magical day!
