RIP Betty White

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. This is my first post of the new year and I’m excited about 2022. I’m hoping for some exciting things to happen this year. 2021 was not the best year. One of my most beloved actresses died.

Yes, Betty White passed away on December 31, 2021. I don’t usually get attached to celebrities because I know I will most likely never meet them, but I grew up with Betty White on The Mary Tyler Moore show. That’s when I was first introduced to her. I loved that show, and when I go back, and watch clips it’s still funny. She had her act together and I loved her humor. I continued to admire her as I grew. She always had a snappy comeback and nothing seemed to get her down.

May be an image of 1 person, dog and text that says '"Animals don't lie. Animals don't criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do."'

In her later years, she also starred on The Golden Girls. I didn’t watch that show as diligently as the first one, but her humor and comedic timing did not fail her there either. I loved watching her give speeches. Her one liners were hilarious and she had a way of delivering them without losing her composure. She was one of the best.

I admire her for her audacity to be herself especially in an industry that only values youth. She was still a hot commodity at ninety-nine. What other actress can say that about themselves? Very few, that’s for sure. She is one of the greats and many people mourn the loss of her.

She was not only a great comedian/actress. She inspired people. She inspires me. Watching her succeed makes me realize that we all have that potential. We just need to stick to it and get it done. There will always be obstacles. I imagine Betty White ran into obstacles during her life, but they certainly didn’t hold her back.

I saw a meme on Facebook that stated: “In a world of Karens be a Betty.”  Doesn’t that just say it all?

So, here’s to Betty White. I raise my glass to you. Thank you for your humor and thank you for inspiring me. You were a class act and you will long be remembered.

  1. Betty White was truly a Golden Girl in every sense of the word. I’ll miss her and what she’s also done for animals. Great tribute, Lisa! Cheers!

  2. The loss of Betty White was tragic, indeed. And yet so much to celebrate when thinking of her life!
    I saw this morning this Bob Saget has also passed. This made me a bit sad as well – all these pleasant people from my childhood, despite not knowing them.
    I still choose to believe that 2022 will be a good year. Full of inspiration and love. Here’s to believing it for us both 😉

    1. Yes, Betty White was such an inspiration. I did hear that Bob Saget passed as well and I was sad to hear that. He was a funny guy. I remember him from A Full House many moons ago. I’m glad that you believe 2022 will be a good year, I feel that way as well. Good luck to you in the New Year. I’m sending you positive vibes and I believe just like you it will be a good one for us both. ❤

  3. May she Rest In Peace. I never met her either, but so many complimentary stories about her have come out of the woodwork since she died. She seemed to be the sort of person who stood up against injustice even when it cost her work, etc. That’s definitely something to be admired!

    1. Absolutely. I love that story about her when she stood up for that POC dancer and it ended up getting her show cancelled. She was true to her beliefs that’s for sure. ❤
