When I was younger I always had an active imagination. More recently I thought my imagination had toned itself down, but lately I've realized that's not quite true.

I'm noticing time and time again that I don't tend to see things for what they are - rather I see a romanticized version of things, the way I'd like them to be, or the way I think they ought to be.

Maybe that's called "optimism" or something. I'm not sure... All I know is that it gets old when time and time again things aren't living up to your hopes or expectations, because your expectations are unrealistic, because you basically just made them up.
