Creating your own reality.

Too often I have been told things like get your head out of the clouds, come back to earth, stop dreaming, come out of your fairytale and face the reality. What is reality? Is it defined by one’s ability to grimace through life and become pessimistic and nod their head and bob along with the tide? Wouldn’t it make more sense to look at the world with a perspective that is entirely your own? So if I do find a fairytale everyday to live and if that makes me happy then that ought to be my reality doesn’t it? It is okay to dream. I believe the whole world is in our mind. Our thoughts and perspectives will define our reality, whether it is beautiful or ugly. I will not slap someone else’s perspective on my forehead and call it real life. I am real, my thoughts and feelings are real.
