My Mantra: what would Zsa Zsa do?
This is my personal mantra. It reminds me to stay true to my inner diva regardless of what others may think. It has helped me whenever I've been in a "should I buy it?" or "should I wear it?" pinch. Usually (and unfortunately for my bank account) the answer has been an indisputable YES! Thank you Zsa.
For those of you who don't know, Zsa Zsa Gabor is a Hungarian-born actress and socialite (she is also 93 years old!). She is a highly-eccentric diva who has been known to rock some serious bling without remorse (see the photo above).
Recently Zsa Zsa has been there for me (in spirit of course)on my quest to find a new career. This has been a long journey with no finish line in sight. I've often asked myself "would Zsa Zsa stay in a job that was uninspiring and depressing?" Answer - no! Would Zsa Zsa take a new job that didn't move her? Answer - no no no! And so the journey continues and I keep looking.
Now there are many things about this diva that are not so divalicious. 8 divorces, 1 annulment (but, really, who is counting?), a 72-hour stint in jail after slapping a Los Angeles police officer in the face, and a general indifference for social norms. Zsa Zsa's moral compass is certainly in question here, but her conviction is not. And this dear friends is why I can see past her transgressions.
Next time you are faced with self doubt or are uninspired ask yourself. WWZZD? And remember, Zsa Zsa Gabor is inspiring because she lived a glamorous life where she (and only she)defined the terms. A true diva.
What terms will you impose on your life today?
