I Live in a Dreamworld
It's true. On my first grade report card my teacher wrote "she's a day dreamer". It's still true today. I live in my head because I can't live in reality how and where I want to live. Circumstances have worked to put me in a place where I have been all of my life. I haven't been brave enough to change them. I recently found this quote: "This is your world; shape it or someone else will." I need to reshape my world.
If I'm lucky, I have another fifteen or twenty years left to live before I am too old to change things. So, I feel like I have to do it now. I've been places where I felt I belong. I've been with people with whom I feel like I belong. Circumstances have kept me away from them.
How do you change something so basic? How do you make dreams come true? That's what I'm thinking about now.
