dreams vs. reality

My dream is to be free of guilt and regret.
Reality is... we are all surrounded by controversy, circumstance, and error.

My dream is to remain 26 years of age forever.
Reality is... I am becoming older and wiser with each passing moment.

My dream is to never deal with money again.
Reality is... I work to make money and I make money to pay bills.
Reality is... There will never be enough money.

My dream is to sense satisfaction.
Reality is... I am never quite satisfied.

My dream is to travel the world, explore new places, learn new cultures...
Reality is... I travel often to places I have already been (most often).

My dream is live on a white sandy beach... in a major city with beautiful 75-90 degree weather everyday.... surrounded by raw food restaurants and organic farmers markets.
Reality is... I live in Chicago.... a city that I absolutely love.

My dream is to be whisked away to some far away place by the man of my dreams, never to be returned.
Reality is... I hover in this wonderful world of dating.

My dream is to live an Organic Raw lifestyle 100% of the time.
Reality is... Junk Food is everywhere.... temptation is hard to resist.

My dream is to devote every day of my life to rest and pleasure.
Reality is... I devote a good portion of my life to work and survival.


If you had the choice between living reality or a dream, what would you choose?

I'm having a hard time saying no to junkfood, and feeling like I never have enough money.

I may sound shallow but I so prefer the dream.

I think i would choose reality. Dream life would be nice for a short while, but the ups and downs are what makes the good times really worth it. Reality's a challenge. And who doesn't like a challenge?

Hmmmm.... I would choose reality! But I'm sure you'll achieve all your dreams eventually!

One grows older everyday, but can always be young at heart. I like to think I am not a day over 23 :)
