"We can cast away priceless time in dreams, born of imagination, fed upon illusion, and put to death by reality." -J. Garland.

Dreaming, hoping, wishing, imagining, creating a perfect world/a perfect date/a perfect situation/a perfect-whatever in our minds.
Just by dreaming about it,doesn't make it true.
And we dream and dream.. Of faraway places, far from harm and hate and pain. An island in the coast of Nowhere. A place where there is only true love and happiness. No hunger or illnesses. A place where you can still wish upon a shooting star. A place where fairies exist.
We dream of the day when we will finally meet our other half (if such thing exists), our prince charming on his white horse, knocking on our door, ready to take us to his magic palace. There, we will live happily ever after.
We dream of becoming succesful and famous (well,some people do). People recognising our talents, our efforts.
Then,the present comes to snap us back to reality.

The truth is, we can't really control what we are dreaming of. Still, we can control what we daydream of. Our daydreams are product of our idle brain, fed by our own wild fantasies and expectations. Wishes seeing the light of day in our pure imagination.
Yes, we spend a lot of time daydreaming about what we want. What would be spectacular for us. Irresistible thoughts, dazzling our mind.

But again, just by daydreaming about it, doesn't make it true.

Open your eyes and see what's really going on around you.

Keep your feet on the ground, when your head's on the clouds. 
-Brick by boring brick
