    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 am a realist. I know where I am and all the limitations and expectations that accompany that. I am a dreamer. I believe that I will be who I am at the appropriate time. When my dream comes true, I'll begin again beginning a realist. A new set of limitations and expectations...

    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'm currently stuck in dream mode.

    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.
