I had this weird dream of me going up this huge and long staircase I made it halfway but I was trying to catch my breath so I stopped halfway and started to rest then I woke up
Most dreams are messages from the subconscious mind. You are just processing daily thoughts, feelings and events in the dream.
Ascending up a staircase to me means moving up in the life or having ambition to move up;
Stopping to catch your breath-relaxation time, need for a vacation; need to take time and assess one's progress
