    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.

    I hate when people call me pessimistic

    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?

    Realistic Dreams

    I dream of a brighter world, and of a giant raspberry sundae to swim in and munch.I also know that these things need to be worked for. It's no use simply dreaming, you have to take practical steps toward them.It's great to dream, it gives us inspiration and motivation to create...

    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 know sometimes life calls

    for you to be realistic but isn't it fun to just float off in the daydreams of what ifs and be imaginative?

    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...

    I don't know where to start this off,

    but I'll just first say that I can't do anything remarkable. I'm not special. I'm not good at anything. I'm just ordinary. I try so hard to change that, but nothing I do is good enough. I'm slowly starting to rethink all of this. I'm starting lose hope. I'm not seeing a...

    To Dream

    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.

    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.

    "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...

    This seems about right.

    With time, the dreams gave way some to reality, practicality, honesty. Always a dreamer first, though. Reality will still be there when I get round to it. Sort of reliable that way. :)
