I was awake at 4 am Googling the meaning of dreaming about frogs.
In the dream I am sitting at my desk at home watching movies one after another. In all of the movies there were frogs. In the last movie there was Tom Hanks biting the head off a frog. I thought to myself: Why am I watching A Fish Called Wanda again?
Who knows why I thought Tom Hanks was in that movie, or perhaps I thought it was A Frog called Wanda. I never saw the movie but I know that Tom Hanks was not in it.
Right after watching Tom Hanks bite the head of the frog I looked down at my desk and there were 2 small frogs. A dark green one stretched out as if dead and a bright green one happy smiling at me.
“Every moment there are a million miracles happening around you: a flower blossoming, a bird tweeting, a bee humming, a raindrop falling, a snowflake wafting along the clear evening air. There is magic everywhere. If you learn how to live it, life is nothing short of a daily miracle.”― Sadhguru
I thought: how strange and I smiled back at the smiling one. The strangest thing was that I was not afraid of them at all. Then I woke up.
According to one website, dreaming about frogs is a positive thing, it generally means transformation, rebirth. I like that. I stopped searching before I encountered anything negative.
I am also coming up with my own meaning. I have always been afraid of frogs. Growing up in an area where they tended to appear I was always on the lookout for them. My fear was that one would jump on me. I am seeing this dream as my inner child making peace with the things that scared me in the past, and still scare me.

There is also the fairytale meaning of frogs becoming princes. I have been dating an endless list of frogs lately. They all come full of promise but never stick around long enough to become the prince.
Actually it is more the other way around. They come in looking like a prince and then they turn into a frog.
The best thing is that I finally can honestly say without any reservation: I don’t care. Come or go, just don’t block the door. It feels great not giving a frog’s (well, rat’s) behind about what anyone says or does.

I find myself more and more perfectly content with the present moment. I am okay with men that come full of promises, but fail to deliver. Nothing changes when a man that promised me the world delivers nothing. Nothing. It just means that they are not the one. It is all a part of this wonderful thing called My Life.
In a weird way, to me it means I am getting closer and closer.
I don’t lose faith in mankind and love. My heart doesn’t grow cold and solid. These are all experiences that contribute to my beauty, to my story. I have to take the bad with the good. I have to embrace it all. It doesn’t mean that accept less than I deserve or bad treatment. It just means that whatever they do or don’t do have no bearing in me and my emotions.

This growth means making sure that I am being fully present every single time. It means not giving up. It means feeling amazing every time no matter the outcome. It is all within me and nothing from the outside.
I am still me. I am still amazing and still open minded and with an open heart ready for the next adventure. Will the next one be the one? Will he be a prince or a frog? Who knows? I know that I will certainly continue trying and continue being grateful for meeting new frogs, I mean, people.
