    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.

    To Turn the Dream Into Reality

    I have dreams. But to turn those dreams into reality I have to approach things in a pragmatic fashion. I dream of writing and publishing a book. But to see that come true I have to actually put somethng of myself, into it. I have other dreams... some are just recreational...

    Dreams...always dreaming a wonderful world.

    Realist...knowing it is hard to get there but believing in the magic from the universe.

    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.

    I coached high school football

    for 25 years. It was my life and passion. I had opportunities to go to college but decided to stay at high school level. Circumstances took coaching away. I haven't coached for 10 years but I spend a great deal of time vividly day dreaming and fantasizing about being a coach...

    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. :)

    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 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...

    I daydream of how I wish things could be,

    possibilities or how things could change but the reality of how life just punches you in the mouth always brings me back down to earth

    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 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.
