Help me choose a title for my memoir?

I've had a dozen working titles to date all which felt inspired! Today, I felt like I got the best one yet, this after meeting a like-minded soul while walking my dog in the forest. When they casually asked: How are you? I decided to not go with the typical: "Fine," and head on down the trail. Instead I turned, smiled and shared. It's my new normal.


In fact, I'm excited these days to be recovering from the most chaotic 18 months of medical trauma. Trauma where I experienced severe complex mental & physical health challenges. Symptoms which would take a team of 11 specialists 2702 days to diagnose. Seven years its taken to finally have the courage to ask for the support I need and the assertiveness to be confident enough to speak power to my truth.
