“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”
― Nora Ephron
Have you ever looked back at your life like it was a movie? Maybe it was a near-death experience or special occasion that triggered a flash of memories.
Are you playing the hero of your own life?
When you look back and do you see yourself as the victim or the hero/heroine?
It is not too late to change this. How can you stage a turnaround and shift from victim to hero?
Deciding Moments of Playing the Hero In Your Own Life
The moment Coco Chanel spots sailors wearing striped shirts and envisions dresses for ladies. Instantly becoming a real-life heroine who rescued us from corseted dresses.
The moment Margaret Thatcher decided to go to Oxford “One’s life must matter. Beyond all the cooking and the cleaning up one’s life must mean more than that. ”
The moment Grace Kelly decided to really live up to role as the Princess of Monaco rather than being Alfred Hitchcock’s leading lady.
Consider the lines from the movie, The Holiday below:
Arthur: Iris, in the movies we have leading ladies and we have the best friend. You, I can tell, are a leading lady, but for some reason, you’re behaving like you’re the best friend.
Iris: You’re so right. You’re supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for God’s sake…
It is time to step up and be the hero or heroine of your own life.
