Today is one day I will remember for the rest of my life. Because today I have acknowledged the most important thing; today I am living my dreams. Truth is, it was the comment of a reader that recently made me realize we are so stuck up in our own perceptions of life, we don’t stop to notice is not that we can’t reach our dreams, is that we have already done so. Why? Is it because we are selfish in nature? Yeah, all that philosophical stuff sounds a little too outdated. But really, why? Perhaps is because we are able to acknowledge dreams for what they really are, unattainable; so when we are capable of achieving them, suddenly that which was so far from existing does not seem like what we dreamed of. Is like my theory of sexual fantasies; I tell people a sexual fantasy exists in our minds and should never be fulfilled. If it is fulfilled, then, it will no longer be a “fantasy”.
I’m thinking if I have been neglecting myself all these time. If in reality I have had the power to make my life exactly what I wanted it to be –within the possibilities, as we are not God- and live without having to think of what I did not do. I’m thinking if I have been putting too much pressure on myself to become this or that sort of person, when in reality, all along I have been that sort of person. When all along, I have been fulfilling my desires; I have been doing what I wanted to do. Today I have made a promise to myself; this year I will stop dreaming. I will come into full awareness of my present, and acknowledge it for what it is, my reality.
Okay so I was just being nonsensical for the fun of it, I truly hope my feelings are not as hard to understand as they are weird.
To start the year, I have a beautiful song to share, and I hope it inspires everybody because it sure has inspired me. I first heard this song in the movie Notting Hill, it was love at first sight.
I was just going to share the song, however, on my way home I kept thinking what a shame it would be not to share one of the most romantic endings EVER.

A quick note before I’m off; I’m pretty happy with the results of this Blog. I’m not popular, I don’t receive much attention as I would want, but overall I’m pleased with the outcome of this Blog. When I first started, I didn’t realized it was going to be this hard to keep up, yet it always seemed like it was so easy… From now on, I will have another writer posting on this Blog along with me. I’m happy to share my space with someone, I was not born to be alone although I preach of being a loner. And, of course, is always a good thing to bring a different perspective into your world. I only wish that together, we continued to entertain and touch the heart of those, our readers.
