Beyond the endless sky, beyond the deepest ocean, beyond our own barriers there is a reality. So batten down the hatches and endure the rough seas, and maintain hope that as each storm passes, you will hold course in the direction of your hopes and dreams.
Many people face reality by cutting the corners, some hit it head on while others choose the escape route by creating their own perception of reality. For the rich and poor, successors and failures, loved and lonely; reality is the idea that we are not who we hoped to be or what we expected to conquer in this short, yet endless mystery, that we call life. More often than we realise, we attempt to alter the reality coming at us through expectations. We create certain expectations for ourselves and for others in hope of predicting our own. Our expectations are so far from reach, that they will always exceed the ability which puts reality one step ahead, every time. And as well as we aware of this, we cannot and will not accept it.
