"I catch dreams. This one sounds like you." -the BFG
August 05, 2016
Sophie: What's in those jars?
The BFG: Dreams.
Sophie: Dreams aren't things!
The BFG: Is that right?
I saw the most beautiful film last week.
It’s about a friendly giant that catches dreams and plants them in people’s minds while they sleep.
Stay with me it really does have something to do with planners!
BFG: There’s been a story of a little girl, with the great adventures and laughter. Times will be hard, times will be soft, so hold your breaths, cross your fingers, here we go.
It was a wonderful, beautiful story and that’s no surprise, as it was written by Roald Dahl. Even without the story itself the film was gorgeous and the music magical, as so often happens when Steven Spielberg and John Williams pair up, but these three amazingly creative men together sent this film flying to my top 10 list of all time favourite movies!
BFG: [to Sophie] I catch dreams. This one sounds like you.
So, let’s get a little deeper into why I love this movie.
1.BFG is unlike the other nasty, people-eating giants, he follows his heart and purpose, and stays true to that big loving heart of his.
2. I’ve often said that dreams are lovely, flitty things covered in fairy dust, and that’s exactly what they are in this movie!
3. Sophie is a spunky little thing, but she has a plan (sound familiar). She knows what she wants, she knows what’s best for her big friend and she uses her own loving heart to come up with a plan to make that happen!!
Sophie: Are you thinking of a plan?
BFG: I’s not have the foggiest idea in the romp world.
See, I told you it has to do with planners!
“Dreams is full of mystery and magic . . . . Do not try to understand them.”
Everyone has dreams. Everyone was put here for a reason and your dreams help guide you to that purpose, they nudge you and inspire you and wait patiently until you realise they are there, then they take you on a wild ride full of enthusiasm and passion. But, it can petter out, burn up and flit away back into hiding if you don’t treat it right, if you don’t let it come to reality. Your job is to turn your dream, your purpose even, (one dream at a time) into reality.
Sophie: Dreams are so quick!
BFG: Yeah, on the outside. But they’s long on the inside.
My dream is to help you do just that. I want to help you take your dreams, change them to a goal and then plan out the whole kit-n-kaboodle so that it comes true!
The BFG may be the one who plants the dreams in your mind while you sleep, but Sophie is the girl with the plan. Won’t you be the girl with the plan and make your dreams come true?
Sophie: I have a plan.
BFG: Brave, Sophie.
