February 3

So I've basically decided that I need to get my head out of the clouds. I've been thinking about it he least couple days, and I realized that my good friend Sarah is right, and I do tend to set myself up for heartache...Just not by trusting people too much.

It's more by building something up in my head; I'm a dreamer, and I play out these scenarios in my head, and even though I KNOW they won't happen, and I tell myself that repeatedly I'm still a little bit disappointed when it doesn't happen how I dreamed or doesn't happen at all. I make expectations of people, build them up in my head, and its not really fair.

So. Basically my goal is to get my head out of the clouds. Stick to the facts, don't expect more of people than they can give, stop setting myself up for disappointment.

In other news, the girls killed the Hysham Pirates, AND I got to play the last 3 minutes or so of the game. Boys lost, though. =( And we didn't get early lunch, so we all scarfed down our food at ridiculous rates, as usual. That was pretty much the day though.

    Have you read Jane Austen's sound like her :) It is GOOD to dream and can be a gift from God, especially when you learn how to use it to dream big of what HE can do and pray for it! You are right that people cannot live up to our imaginations but if you ask God to use that imagination for His glory, He will take you up on it! This coming from a fellow dreamer :0) It sounds like it just needs to be harnessed a tad!
