I have often spoke of my fascination and respect for Ms. Taylor. I always find it funny that I will come across something related to her right at the moment I need to be reminded to of the importance of authenticity and self preservation and respect.
Say what you want about the woman, but she lived her life and did exactly what she wanted to do, and when she wanted to do it. At a few points on her timeline, she was torn apart on the front pages of newspapers across the globe and called every nasty name in the book.
Though she said it hurt her, she also stated that living a living a life that wasn’t in line with her own passions and desires would have hurt her much more.
There’s a real lesson in that, don’t you think?
