Life is not perfect. A lesson we learned quickly while growing up. In those fleeting years, we also recognize there is a gap between our ideals and realities. It is in that gap, life exists.
Reality without ideal is surviving. Ideal without reality is dreaming. Between surviving and dreaming there is a creative tension that nudges us to move our reality closer to our ideal.
Eventually we reach a point of balance, or we run out of time, energy, or both.
What is your ideal?
What is your reality?
Have you reached a balance?
