DEBBIE, a woman in her 40′s, sits in the passenger seat of a car parked on a curb. The door to the driver’s side is open facing the sidewalk. Several passers walk by confused as Debbie stares at several of them intently. Finally, a gentleman, RICK, walks up to the car.
Are you ok?
Actually I need a ride to my house.
Well, is this your car?
Are you not ok to drive?
No, I’m fine. I just rather you drive.
Rick pauses. He’s very confused, yet curious. Debbie seems pleasant enough, so Rick gets into the driver’s seat. He turns on the car and pulls off.
Ok, so where we headed?
You tell me.
How should I know, it’s your house.
Where do you think my house should be?
What? It’s YOUR house!
You’re going to get us lost, Rick.
Why’d you let me drive in the first place?
TO BE CONTINUED…
Sounds like the script to a comedy, doesn’t it? It’s actually a movie you’ve seen many times before. Read it again, you’ll see. Do you remember now? It’s that movie you’ve seen play over and over again in many peoples lives. It could be the current story of YOUR life. It’s the story of a strong, radiant, and capable human being who decides to let others decide where they are going in life. It is the story of a creative soul who gets lost on the way to their dream because they continue to let someone else drive THEIR car.
That’s right, you are the star of this wonderful movie called life. You, or someone you know, could very well be Debbie, and you may be a little lost right now because you’ve let other people get in your driver’s seat. Maybe it was because you were afraid to make your own mistakes. Maybe it was because you wanted someone else’s approval. Maybe you sacrificed your dream for someone else’s. No matter what the reason, it’s time to change the script! Because you see, in addition to being the star of this movie, you just so happen to be the author and director. You decide how this story ends! If this is you or someone you know, tell them it’s time to rewrite the story, it’s time to grab the steering wheel. This is your life and your dreams, and nobody else can live, act, write, or direct this movie but YOU. Make the movie YOU want, and make it now, because the only thing we cannot control on this project is when our movie premieres.
While there will be some really cool previews and trailers leading up to the premiere, the BIG premiere will take place when we leave our physical bodies. This will be your life review and it will be more of a private screening, but it will be spectacular nonetheless. Picture yourself walking into the most beautiful theatre you’ve ever seen. As you walk down the aisle, you notice something interesting. All the seats are gone except for one spectacular seat right in the middle of the theatre, center screen. You notice that nobody else is there to see your movie; not the critics, not the naysayers, and not anyone whose approval you’ve tried to gain over the years. It’s just you and the screen. Are you excited to see your life’s work? I think you will be, because I believe in your skills as an actor, author, and director of your life.
This is what I picture for you…
The movie ends, and with tears of joy, you slowly stand and begin to clap. Suddenly the clapping intensifies and you realize you’re surrounded by every person you’ve touched in your life by simply chasing your dream. You realize that by chasing your dream you not only fulfilled your life’s purpose but you also inspired hundreds, thousands, millions…to do the same. The happiness you feel is overwhelming. Eternity awaits!
Angel blessings to you!
