Fantasy and real life!

Thoughts about fantasy and real life…

Suddenly my mind was transfixed in my fantasy world….could be for my gratification …. Then I woke up and faced my real world with renewed energies…

“ How can we not create a fantasy in our minds when the reality is so hard?”

“ Like dreaming, fantasy provides a safe mode of trying various combinations of interests and scenarios without volatile immediate consequences allowing the person to sort out his/her desires, providing immediate gratification with a modicum of investment.”

Sorting out things…

Fantasy is fun and entertaining, and certainly has its place. Yet as attractive as fantasy may seem, real life is far better.

Unlike fantasy, where everything is simple and awesome, real life is complicated, inconvenient, fraught with challenge. And that’s what makes real life so incomparably fulfilling.

Fantasy may excite you, but it will never satisfy your deep desire to make a real difference in the real world. Fantasy can ignite your imagination, yet actual effort is necessary to transform what you imagine into reality.

Reality, with all its problems, contradictions, frustrations, and disappointments, is where your efforts matter. Reality is where you push through the challenges and work to lift yourself above the difficulties.

Right here, right now, on this gritty, uneven expanse of reality, is where you do what you do best. This is where you experience yourself making a real difference, and know how good and right it feels.

Indulge yourself in some enjoyable fantasies every once in a while. Then take that positive energy and invest it in the true fulfillment available exclusively in your real life.
