Mary Tyler Moore

“You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you.”

“Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.”

I started today off on a hilarious note and wanted to end it that way. Years ago as I started removing the blinders from my eyes, I noticed things I didn’t always talk about. Then as my curiosity got the best of me and I grew bolder, I had to ask some questions.

I would ask men: who is your favorite woman comedian?

Not a single one could even name a woman comedian.

So I got annoyed and stopped asking. 藍

At the beginning of every single day, I want to sing and dance. So I do. At the end of each day, all I want to do is laugh and feel light hearted. So I try.

I’m not easily offended and have varied tastes. Some days I want silly, goofy, or thoughtful. Other days I want wildly offensive hilarity. I looked at a list of some well known comedians for some funny quotes. But what I got was the take of several women in a male-dominated industry.

I picked Mary Tyler Moore for today for Women’s History Month. She starred as Mary Richards on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” a groundbreaking sitcom featuring a single working woman as the lead character. ♀️
