Derek Winn Russell was a dreamer.
He was so positive all the time and believed even the sky wasn’t the limit. Limits weren’t his thing. His beautiful sister turned his name into an amazing concept: “Dreaming With Reality.” To me, that means to inspire dreaming in a world that is so driven on harsh and strict realities. Be the dreamer in the midst of all of the structure of life, and let your dreaming soul be a light for others.
I truly believe he was sent here to me to show me what it’s like to be out of this world. He couldn’t be shaken, he couldn’t be brought down, his light couldn’t possibly be dimmed. Derek did his own thing and didn’t care about what anyone had to say about it. He had this way and energy about him. He never ran away from reality, he quietly stood out by how humble he was and how his soul shined.
DWR is a concept I will always live by and carry in my heart, and it would be a tragedy to keep that life hack a secret. Dream with reality, people. Don’t be scared to go against the norm and believe in all that you want in this life when reality tries to limit you from it. If you let go of those limitations, somehow along the way your “reality” will turn into you living your dreams every day.
Without dreams, you will be stuck in reality.
