Two years ago I wrote a piece about Barbara Walter’s legacy (link below). She wasn’t saying a total goodbye, but just an “I will see you when it makes sense to”. In the last few years I have so related to that and think all fabulous women should adopt their own version of just showing up when it makes sense to do so – based on our own values. We don’t show up anymore just to show up – that is a thing to do in one’s 30s, 40s or 50s. We show up because the party, the event, the meeting, the discussion, or just the other person is important to us and we think we have something to share or contribute.
Meanwhile, Barbara and Jane Fonda – also mentioned in that blog post – continue to do “their thing”. Love them or hate them, they are women taking my fabulousover60 advice: they are showing up when it matters to them.
Good for them. Get yourself in the same place! Show up when it matters to you—at a town hall, religious gathering, at a reunion or concert of your choosing, the voting booth, or out on the town. Show people what matters to you.
