I ran across a tweet or post somewhere last week where someone quoted someone else (do you love my ability to remember sources here!?), and essentially, they were saying that we all have to dream and plan much bigger. We make ourselves way too small and then we sit back and wonder why nothing Sparkly Fantabulous is happening to us.
You get what you give in action there.
I have a word for what they were talking about: Grippiness.
It makes us act all tight and fearful to not dream big, because we allow the scarcity mentality to have a foothold in the most precious and exciting aspects of ourselves -- our hearts and imaginations.
I am guilty of this just as much as the next Chick.
I have Big Work to do and instead of Getting To It, I've been settling for small dribs and drabs and thinking that is enough. I don't want to be greedy, blah blah blah.
That insults the Infinite Divine, which is what instilled these dreams and hopes and visions in me to begin with.
One of my new heroes is Anna Halprin, a visionary in the field of dance. If I told her what I wanted to do and what was holding me back, I think she would have a thing or two or ten to say to me.
Here's the trailer for a new documentary about her.
Are you being Grippy and not Dreaming BIG enough? What are you gonna do about it!?
