Be Your Own Leading Lady!

Because, after all, you ARE the leading lady in your own life!

No one else can be you. You are an original and ONLY you can star in your own life. The role is yours and belongs to no one else. Don’t go through life as wallflower sitting on the sidelines. Be YOU! If you don’t know who that is, then find out and get on it! Times a wasting. This is not the practice run for life. This is the real thing!

  • There is only ONE you.
  • The role is already yours. It belongs to no one else.
  • If someone else has it, it is just because you never claimed it.
  • Find the voice that has been silenced by others.

This was said so well in a quote from the movie, The Holiday. This was a great movie, by the way. If you have not seen it, I highly recommend it.

Arthur Abbott: 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 are behaving like the best friend.
Iris: You’re so right. You’re supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for god’s sake! Arthur, I’ve been going to a therapist for three years, and she’s never explained things to me that well. That was brilliant. Brutal, but brilliant.


lead-ing la-dy n. – A woman who takes care of herself, lives life to its fullest, goes after her dreams, smiles, laughs, loves herself, loves others, and is happy. She lives out loud, not afraid to be her true, authentic self, the best version of herself.

Dear Amazing Woman,
This is the first day of the rest of your life. Let’s change our choices and change our lives to be the person we always wanted to be, the person we were born to be. And here is the cool part, the more we make “leading lady” choices, the more we find ourselves evolving into someone we did not even know was in there, but she is. She’s been there all along. We are who we are because of the choices we make. Change your choices, change your life.

Be the kind of woman that makes other women want to be YOU!
