All my friends will tell you that I’m not really in to celebrities. I’m much more of a chef and winemaker fan! There are a few celebrities though that have made an impact on my life. Joan Rivers has been one of them. Coming home after our vacation and being off grid I learned of her surgery and being put into a medically induced coma. With bated breath we listened every day to the news to see what would happen. Sadly she has passed, as most of you know.
Joan Rivers was a celebrity that I deeply appreciated because of who she was and how she lived her life. There’s so much that we can all learn from her, if you ask me! I started wearing her jewelry over 17 years ago. The first piece was bought by my mother. Her bee jewelry was all about doing the impossible! You can see my collection in the picture below!
Her jewelry led me to ask “How do I represent myself on stage? What is my sense of style and how can I make it my own? How can I be unique and still be fashionable and forward?” Yes, I learned a ton from a comedian! I also learned how to really have a sense of humor in my life, as she did.
Most recently, I have been watching her reality TV show with her daughter and grandson. The last three years I have learned how Joan Rivers lives life and every moment to the fullest. I’d laugh and cry in admiration for her while watching that show. As she passed I’m sure she had every intention of being the back this month with a big bold loud voice box living her life full out again. That, to me, is where I want to go in my life.
How are you living fully every day? Alive? Vibrantly? Full of love and laughter? Reaching for the impossible like the bee? And always, always, always, pushing yourself to live the biggest, bestest, life you can live.
Thank you Joan, you’re truly an inspiration.
