The Reality Behind Your Dreams

The Reality Behind Your Dreams

Stop dancing the line

We all have dreams. We all have those incredible things we would love to accomplish, or those beautiful destinations we would love to travel to. We all have an ideal life planned in our heads and the burning desire to get there.

However, there's somewhere along the line between our dreams and our reality where a disconnect occurs. There's somewhere along the line that we begin to believe that maybe our dreams are just that, dreams, and that they may never be achievable in our lifetime.

This disconnect happens to be our very downfall and in fact, our biggest enemy. The notion that our dreams are not achievable, by any means, is a bunch of bull. Not to mention, whoever or whatever planted that detrimental seed into our magnificent little minds was a complete and utter asshole.

We were given one life and one life only. We weren't given this life to simply settle for less than the best, or to be okay with "average." We weren't given this life to sit back and let opportunities pass us by just because that seed grew into something larger, something that consumes our being and paralyzes our ability to propel forward as the human we wish to become.

So you want to be a singer? What's stopping you from going to that audition you saw in the paper?

You want to be a photographer? Why aren't you out working on your art every day and seeking out potential customers?

You want to travel the world? What are you waiting for?

If money popped into your head for any of this, you can blame that seedling growing into a tree in your mind for that one. Money can not, should not, and will not be the determining factor of whether or not we truly pursue our wildest dreams. Yes, money is important and yes, it is a necessity.

That being said, you do not live your life to have money. You live this life to find freedom, to find happiness, to find what sets your soul afire with love and passion and all the beautiful things in this world. You live this life for you, and if what you want is to be a singer, to be a photographer, or to travel the world, then you should do it. The only thing preventing you from turning your dreams into reality is in fact, you.

We are constantly dancing along the fine line between dreams and reality, scared to take the forward plunge to the other, more exhilarating side.

This is the reality behind our dreams.

We have the utmost ability to do whatever our little hearts and minds desire, that is not the question. The question is whether or not you are willing to take the risk, jump before the plunge, accept possible failure and understand the importance of your pursuit. It is not until we do these things that we will accomplish our dreams and live the lives we love to live.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Dreading This Day All About Love

Valentines day blues


I have never enjoyed Valentine's Day.

Even if when I was in a relationship it was just an awkward day of "hey I love you, give me gifts and lets make out." But this year, I am just not feeling this thing at all. Since the relationship ended last June I have just been dreading the time when February came, because you know that on the 14th you are going to see all these love post and all us singles are like "welp this is just not my day.", and honestly you feel defeated. I personally asked other singles friends (like the three I have) if they wanted to come and watch Netflix with me and dread the day, but sadly they either had school or work. So here is my plan of getting though this day of love:


Yes Netflix how else am I supposed to get through this day? Usually I have Greys Anatomy playing all the time but that has love in it, and I am not in the mood for that. My plan is to watch all the crime shows I can because watching TV crime series or documentary about serial killers just seems perfect for the 14th.


Yes sleeping. I don't have anywhere I need to be why not catch up on some zzz's


Yes I am going to eat my feelings with chocolate because why not? if I could I would get a giant slice of cake and live off that on the 14th but sadly I am stuck with the normal Heresy's chocolate and Reeses which will do their job.


me :)

This is my wonderful cat Kimber and she will be my partner in crime on the 14th. She will sleep, snuggle, cuddle, all day with me because I need that moral support of my fluffy cat.


If I am able to fit reading a book into my schedule of everything listed above then reading will go into that open spot. I always loved reading but with school it is hard to find the time to read for enjoyment. so this day will be the perfect day.

This is my plan for the 14th of February and hopefully this will help me get though this dreadful day. And if you are also single try this out :)
