Hello world! I have been toying with the idea of starting a blog and thought to myself, well you’ve got to just go for it! So here we are! The Dreaming Realist is based on one of my favorite quotes from Modern Family (which I’ve never seen):

“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. 
See, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. 
And the realists? 
Well, without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.”

I have always associated myself as a dreamer, but also a realist. Going through my 20’s I have realized a lot about the balance of the two! There has been moments of pure dreams, you know, the ones where you become a millionaire and live in this big fancy mansion that has white walls and a white picket fence. On the flip side, the moment of realness, you look around at the dishes piled up and your McDonald’s cup on your living room counter.

The dreamer in me says “get up and off the computer” but the realist says “I’m tired and -*YOLO*-. Both are okay, as long as you’re happy.

So thank you for reading my rambles and hopefully finding some peace within yourself to know you’re not alone in this.
