    Two Forces ... One Body

    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...

    "There are dreamers and there are realists in

    this world. You'd think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not the opposite is true. You see, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists, well without the...

    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 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.

    Yes, I think this is possible.

    You need to see the world as it is, but there is also the need for release and new ideas that help you get out of the box and create new conditions and attitudes within that reality. It is true that we are limited by the order of nature, but there is plenty of room for...

    To Dream

    Dreaming is something that provokes everyone to see what could be. it's what keep you moving forward in the world. Without it we would be a gray world with no color and truly it does not matter how unrealistic your dreams may be because everything is possible in this world. It...

    because I'm not. I'm a realist. I do have dreams that I hope can come true, though so does that make me both?

    I celebrate the part of me

    that dreams and creates….like a child who has that eternal sense of wonder, the imagination is ripe and full of possibilities…the adult in me dreams based on my interests, the realist in me decides and plans with logic and being practical puts these dreams into action.

    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.
