Happy Birthday, Betty White!

17 Jan

Did you know Golden Girl Betty White is a Greek American?  (Her mother’s maiden name was Cachikis.)  Did you know she was the first woman to win an Emmy for game show hosting?  Did you know she’s the oldest person to ever host Saturday Night Live?  She’s more than just a comedienne, she’s someone who pushes the boundaries, working tirelessly.

Betty White’s been having a bit of a heyday recently with hysterical cameos and starring roles.  But I love what Alex Pattakos writes about her in his Huffington Post article “Betty White: Proving It’s Never to Late to Live.”  Betty White turns ninety today.  Last year, Pattakos wrote:

I’ve found that people who take the time to find meaning are happier — they’re more joyful, more passionate and more fulfilled. They are more resilient to the stresses of life. And, in effect, they become the “light,” much like Betty White, for others. And they help to demonstrate and remind us that until we take our very last breath, it’s never too late to pursue our dreams and discover meaning in our lives.

No matter who you are, no matter your age, no matter your ethnicity, no matter your gender, you can still pursue your dreams!

    I wonder if Betty thinks 90 is the new 70??? … I bet not… she’s way too cool to b.s. herself and what a wonderful milestone she’s reached.
