If your life were made into a movie what would it be titled?

In one of my moments of deep life reflection this question occurred to me.  It happened kind of in the same way I thought of this. If my life, up to this point, were made into a movie what would be the most apropos title?

To come up with an answer I had to consider both what my life has been, and what I hope it will be in the future.  I'm no longer the insecure teen who never felt like I fit in anywhere, and who was too afraid to speak up or stand up for myself.

I'm not the girl who married just barely over the threshold of twenty years of age, and who had never lived away from home--ever.  The one who spent her twenties trying to figure out what this marriage thing is all about and trying on friends like shoes: some were not a good fit but others were just right.  Besides, that girl was defined by her friends.  It mattered so very much what they thought of her.  

Now this girl who has entered her thirties, first with all sorts of angst, fear, and trepidation, I recognize.  She's no longer in the wishy-washy phase of her twenties, but still not totally yet past it either.  This girl is more mature; she's more grown up. 

She has filtered through her relationships with others, and only a few still remain with the same fit as a comfy well-made shoeLike the pair you know you can put on to soothe the aches.  She is not defined by, but rather enriched by her friends presence.  She is coming into her own and knows what is important to her. It does not matter so much anymore what others think of her.  She has no problem holding her own and letting you know how she feels because she's shed the shyness of her teenage years.

This girl is living life in her own lane and that seems like it would be the most appropriate theme of her life story: Life In Her Own Lane.

If your life were made into a movie what would you title it?

    1. Thanks Roshni! I am so glad I'm not enslaved to the people-pleasing phase anymore. It is cliche but so very true that you'll never please everyone anyway.
