    Dreams...always dreaming a wonderful world.

    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?

    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 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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    "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 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 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...

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

    My dream is to prove everyone wrong.

    My goal is for everyone's eyes to be wide open with their expressions on their faces full of surprise and their mouths wide open. I'll impress them all. My wish is for everything to be different. I'll have more respect, people wouldn't think less of me, I'll be proud of...

    I have wishes of going to college to study to

    be a news broadcaster, but I have very high beliefs that it's just a dream of mine and I won't get there in the end. All my friends say I should follow my dreams, but I feel like that's not the right thing to do even though that's the only pursuit I have right now. My parents...

    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 would like to realistically achieve my dreams.

    .. well, at least one or two that are actually possible to do. The hard parts are taking the right steps and having exceptional luck with timing.

    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...

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