Check, Check, One, Two

I had this thought the other day as I babbled to myself about a "reality check" in reference to Jay and I and not talking about the future because too much was up in the air.

Is a "Reality Check" ever a happy, positive thing?

Like, is a Reality Check ever fun?  Happy?

Or is it only ever sobering?  Does it only ever make you take a step back, never a step forward?

What's the deal with that? 

Are there awesome reality checks too?

I've always felt that a reality check deflates an emotional bubble. This can be good in those moments when it seems that everything is falling apart and life is unutterably awful - a reality check can show you that things aren't as bad as you think and help you focus on things you can do to turn things around.

Of course, it can also be used to put the breaks on a happy bubble. Is this good? Depends whether you value the emotional high over a practical grounding in reality.

I think there are awesome reality checks. Like once in a while, I'm doing nothing and I realize how great life can be, and I think, "whoa, is this really real? This is awesome!"
BAM! Reality check.

Funny, I always think of those of just "Moments of realization" :D

But, yeah, I guess they are reality checks too :)
