May Day!

may

Happy first day of May (also known as May Day)! This month’s calendar reminds me of a scene from one of my favorite movies, The Holiday. Arthur and Iris are out to dinner and he gives her a bit of a pep talk about being the leading lady in her own life.

We’ve all been there. That place where we let others influence our own happiness.

I love this scene because it’s when I feel like Iris really makes the turn to loving herself and realizing her true value. (It also goes to show that sometimes chatting with a friend over dinner and wine can do so much more than a visit to the therapist.)

Are you the leading lady/pearl? Or are you the best friend/oyster?

Oysters and best friends are both great, but I would rather be a pearl and lead my life!
