I recently came across a post that one of my dear friends shared on Facebook. It was an app that lets you choose one of your profile pictures to edit into a movie poster with other celeb quotes. The app states, “What does your Hollywood movie poster look like? See yourself as a Hollywood celebrity, starring in the movie of your life.” This is enough to grab anyone’s attention because it’s just flat out cool and fun! For me personally, having lived in Hollywood and as a person who has made a career out of working in the entertainment business and the Fine Arts, well, I certainly couldn’t resist trying out this app! Needless to say, I had a blast playing around with integrating my pictures into a movie poster and checking out the celeb quotes they put on the posters. Serious cool fun!
But this got me thinking…if my life were a movie (which it certainly could be with all the drama, excitement, romance, hardships, soap opera & comedic moments!), what would people say about me? Would they consider me a great beauty? Would they claim that the world has fallen in love with me, that my power, beauty, strength, and kindness are mind blowing and give others hope? Would I be considered as having charmed the world? It’s something to consider for sure and goodness knows I would hope that at least a majority of the people that are a part of my life would think of me in some sort of lovely, positive light.
We should all live our lives in such a way that our movie poster would possess quotes that share a small taste of who we are and the mark we make on those around us. It’s something to strive for and always keep in mind. If your life were a movie, what would the quotes say on your movie poster??
