    Dreams Inspire Us. ...

    Dreams inspire us. Without dreams we would not have reached the moon. Dreams keep me optimistic about the future, realism gets me there.

    I'm currently stuck in dream mode.

    Ignoring the relief reality may bring because maybe reality will be too much for me. I forgot to balance the two.

    I Switch Back and Forth

    I love dreaming and fantasizing.  It's amazing...it's like I'm in heaven. But eventually, when I get done, I realize that none of what I dream is ever possible, and I fall face down back into reality.  It hurts too.

    I sometimes feel like I have two sides to

    myself, both battling for dominance, but in the end they tend to balance each other out, allowing me to dream while having that dream be attainable.

    Dreaming Without Losing Touch

    I dream about what could be, but I never lie to myself about what is. One can dream without losing touch with reality.
