"People don't like the true and simple; they like fairy tales and humbug."
~ Edmond de Goncourt ~

We create ideal situations in our minds that don't, or can't, work out in reality, and there's generally a let down feeling- a loss- when we realize that our imagination has us hoodwinked.
     Dealing in reality is our highest level of productivity. Action in the moment, each moment, far outweighs figuring out solutions in our heads, and yet, that's what we do. We figure and plan. We think, and think, and think some more.
     Perhaps, going forward, when we're faced with a problem, we would do better to leave our thinking minds at home and step out into the world to discover what's really there.

I stay in the moment and remind myself regularly that fantasizing about the future is a let-down, guaranteed.
