Anyway, I’ve watched two films recently with character dialogue that really resonated with me. In the sci-fi thriller Inception, Eames, played by Tom Hardy (another favorite of mine), tells Joseph Gordon Leavitt’s character, Arthur, “You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.”
Similarly, in the drama “The Kids are Alright,” Julianne Moore’s character, Jules, announces to her new client, “I am of the belief that more is more.”
Incredible, right? I thought so too.
As children we are admonished to reach for the stars. We are encouraged to be anything we want to be, that the sky is truly the limit. Then, somehow, we “grow up.” Reality sets in and we are given adult expectations and we forget how to dream. We are convinced we must settle for what we have and not strive for what we want. It’s sad, really.
So, blog buddies, I am recommitting and I am putting you under oath (and covenant) to throw off the shackles of adulthood and DREAM BIG! More IS more, my friends. Don’t lose your vision of who you want to be and what you want out of this life. I seem to forget on a daily basis but I am going to do better. I hope you do too.
What are some of your “big dreams?” If you tell me yours, I’ll tell you mine…
All my love,
