|1st tornado dream in about 2 years

Hello, I just stumbled upon this community this morning after waking up from another dream involving tornadoes. I have been having tornado dreams since about middle school I would say. I live in Georgia and we occasionally have tornadoes. I have seen a few but I am not particularly scared of them in real life, but I remember being scared of them a few times as a kid growing up in Texas. What interests me more is trying to find a meaning behind the dream. My tornado dreams are never quite the same and there always seems to be a different defining characteristic about each dream. When they first began, they were always nightmarish and I was always trying to run away and hide. Everytime I have the dream, I am in a different place. However, occasionally, usually at happier points in my life, they turn from nightmarish to fun. I have actually had several dreams where I am leaping from tornado to tornado and I simulate flying. I can control the tornadoes and nobody that I know is in danger. Last night, however, was not a good one. I have been particularly stressed with school, looking for a different job, my current job, and being out of a serious relationship. My dream last night involved tornadoes moving in all directions and I was trapped in a restaurant (with walls made entirely of glass of course). Tornadoes were destroying everything in their path, and then at a single moment, 2 tornadoes switch directions and head straight toward me and this restaurant full of terrified people. Right as the tornado hits I duck down, close my eyes, and then poof, they disappear and I am completely fine. I stand up from my current spot to see everyone else still down on the ground bracing for impact. At this point I have the realization that I am dreaming and I wake myself up from my dream. At least that was how it appeared to me. This dream was unique in the fact that of my nightmarish dreams I didn't perceive myself as dying at the end. I simply stood up and ended the dream on my own terms. Anyways, I am trying to figure out what this might mean for me. Any ideas?
