“Standing on their shoulders,” our local celebration of women’s suffrage and the International Women’s Day was a resounding success. As Women’s History Month draws to a close, honor the women who have etched a significant place in our lives. Actress Betty White has been a long-standing symbol for the energy and creativity of the “older woman.” Her television career began in the late 1930’s. She passed away on December 31, 2021, three weeks short of her 100th birthday.
White’s longevity lessons are simple. Acting gave her life purpose. Living life with purpose improves mental and physical well-being. Find your passions and nourish them. White’s next lesson is to find joy. Joy is all around us in simple things.
Supporting causes is White’s third lesson. Her philanthropy is legendary. She was an ardent advocate for animal welfare. We lose our worries caring for others. Her last lesson is one we know well: live in the present. Mindfulness and meditation are food for our souls.
Be especially cognizant of White’s example. Reach out to others with kindness and empathy. Wishing my readers an abundance of joy throughout the upcoming holidays and hearts filled with love, gratitude and reflection.
