Hellow, Avangi

I have another question :

I found that my dream is traveling around the world.

=I found my dream traveling around the world.

Are those two sentences accepted grammatically?

In other words, I'm wondering if 'Gerund' can be used as 'Object Complement'.

Could you explain ?

Gooday!

Both are grammatically correct but mean two different things to me:

I found that my dream is traveling around the world. = I realized/discovered that my dream is traveling around the world.
I found my dream traveling around the world. = I found my dream while I was traveling around the world.
I think the sentence may mean to say this: I found myself (constantly) dreaming about travleling around the world.
I found my dream = I found something I have been yearning for a long time.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I found my dream traveling around the world. = I found my dream while I was traveling around the world.

In this sentence, is 'Traveling' considered as Participle orG not Gerund?

Is there ambiguous meaning between them?

What do you think about this below?

-- Would you mind me carrying this bag for you?

Thanks ,

Gooday!
I found this unclear and ambiguos: I found my dream traveling around the world.
It doesn't appear to me the same as the above = I found my dream while I was traveling around the world.
Traveling - is a present participle. I find myself being unable to resist sweets.
I find myself being unable to resist sweets.

I think 'being' is Gerund not participle.

Do you think "being' is Present Participle?

Please give me Why!
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Let's hear why you think it's a gerund first.
I find myself being unable to resist sweets.

'being' doesn't give me progressive feeling in this sentence :

It carrys 'habitual or state meaning', I think.

Like below sentence

Would you mind me carrying this bag?

It seems that 'being' is used in the same way as 'carrying'.

So I think 'being ' as gerund.

What do yu think about my idea?

Gooday!
