Joan Rivers is a woman who lived her life to the fullest, doing what SHE LOVED up until the day she died. At 81 years old, she didn't "retire" and rest in leisure. She was wealthy, so it wasn't like she had to keep working to make money. No, she did it because it was in her to share her gift to the world. I take such comfort and joy in the message that she has left for all of us, young and old, rich and poor, black and white...DO YOU!!
I always say "Know Yourself Well, Be Yourself Always!" Joan Rivers did not apologize for who she was and what she believed. She presented herself as a human being with all of her imperfections..even when she paid to cover them up with plastic surgery...she still let us know she was an open book and totally honest with all of life.
It seems like 2014 is a pivotal year for many of our wisdom women to be called home, because their work here on Earth is done. But the remarkable legacy they have left for us remains. I am honored to have learned from them all.
Are you doing what you love? If you dropped dead today, would you be caught doing what you love? I hope so! That is what Joan Rivers did. I am so inspired by that lesson!!!
