What would the movie of your life be? Would it be a drama? A comedy? A thriller? A romance?
Do you remember the best movie you’ve ever seen? Why was it your favourite? Did it touch you? Did it make you think or laugh or cry?
I’d like to invite you in your imagination, to leave your current surroundings and come to the movies with me.
The movie you’re going to see has received rave reviews.
Anyone whose seen it has loved it. It’s made you very curious. Are you ready to see it?
Imagine walking into a beautiful theatre and sinking into one of the soft plush seats. You can hear the murmur of muted conversations and you can smell hot buttered popcorn. There’s a feeling of excited anticipation in the air.
Now the lights dim, the audience hushes and the movie begins.
To your surprise and amazement, you discover the movie is The Movie of Your Life.
Yes, it’s YOUR life on the screen and it’s happening right now in full Technicolor and Surround Sound.
Shhhh, The Movie of Your Life is Starting
The opening credits roll, the music rises, and your name is everywhere. You are the star of the movie. You are the director of the movie. You are the writer and producer of the movie. You are even the composer of the musical soundtrack. Wow, you are talented.
Welcome to the movie of your life!
As you watch the events from your life unfold on the screen, the audience is responding and connecting to your story.
The movie of your life has it all – adventure, drama, thrills, laughter – all the ups and downs of your life. You watch in wonder as the story unfolds, and the audience laughs, sighs, gasps and even cries.
The movie shifts to show one of the most difficult experiences of your life. You watch as your life falls apart on the screen and the audience is with you, you can feel it. You can feel their love and compassion and support rolling over you like a warm comfortable blanket.
What happened was challenging and painful, an experience that hurt you, that required and manifested change. You can still remember how difficult it was to understand why it was happening to you.
But you knew that staying a victim was not an option. Your experience catalyzed you.
It transformed you because you knew it was touching something deep inside you, something that had been hidden, unexplored, unacknowledged.
Through that difficult experience you became more you.
Transformation and Triumph
As you come through each experience and watch how you triumphed in your life, the audience cheers and you cheer along with them. You never knew that other people would respond this way. It almost lifts you out of your seat.
You are seeing yourself with different eyes. You are seeing that you are a woman of strength.
In the movie of your life you are many things. You are both shy and warrior-like, a bold poppy and a shrinking violet, a wild badass and a wise elder, a charismatic leader and a humble follower, a sage and a clown, in fact, all the things we all are.
Never Miss the Weekly Post
As the plot of the movie shifts again, you see possible events or situations in your future. You’re still the star. You’re still the director. You’re still the writer and producer. But which of the events you’re seeing will actually happen?
You see now that no matter what mystery unfolds, you can take all the strength and confidence born of your past learning experiences with you into the future. You’re stronger for them.
You can live a life of abundance and joy no matter what happens.
You don’t pretend any more. You’re willing to see things as they are, and then see them as they could be. You are a mover and shaker, not content with living in the status quo.
You are able to handle the tartness and sweetness of life with grace and trust.
Everything Led to Here and Now
Sitting there in that dark theatre, you know with every fibre of your being that no experience you’re had in your past was useless. They all led you to where you are today. You know that no matter what happens in the unwritten movie of your future, you will continue to rise.
Finally the movie ends, the audience rises to its feet and turns to you, clapping and cheering. Your smile grows wider, and you stand and graciously accept the applause. Now you know you were never an extra or a stage hand. You were the star, the writer, the director of the movie of your life.
You leave the theatre smiling.
Dear fierce and feminine woman, this is not fiction. This IS your life – a high drama, a tense thriller, a romantic comedy, a bone chilling mystery, a romantic adventure.
You were not born to hide out, you were born to stand out.
So what’s next, star?
