There is a line from a movie that I always remember at times like this. It's in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I know, it seems kind of weird, but hang with me here. The tour has come to the lickable wallpaper (germs...gross) and Willy exclaims that "The snozberries taste like snozberries!". Veruca Salt asks him "who ever heard of a snozberry?". Willy forcefully tells her that "We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dreams".
Life is full of preconceptions about what we are "supposed" to feel or think. It's strange that it takes an old movie about an eccentric chocolatier and his wonky factory to slap me with a reminder. Dream the dreams, make the music!
