It’s hard to believe that comedian and ‘Golden Girl’ Betty White just turned 95. She is one sharp lady with such an awesome, upbeat and positive personality. She’s also been around long enough to see it all and doesn’t let anyone slip anything by her.
Recently White was interviewed by Yahoo News Global Anchor’s, Katie Couric. In the interview White refers to herself as ‘one of the luckiest old broads on two feet’. She also tells Couric, she has been blessed with good health and still has her faculties about things. So, I am sure it was of little surprise to White, that Katie Couric was really just trying to get her to trash Trump on ‘live’ TV.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
Journalist Katie Couric met with actress Betty White earlier this month to talk about the entertainment legend’s secrets for her longevity. One of White’s tips for a long, happy life included a positive outlook.
Couric’s interview with White started out all “nicey nicey” ….
…but then it turned real! Couric tried to goad White into saying something negative about President Donald Trump. It didn’t work.
When Couric asked White about the state of our nation and how divided it’s become, White agreed that it was divided but added that it wasn’t a reason to be negative. Instead, it was a reason to be positive.
Couric continued on the subject, noting that “there’s so much negativity from the highest office in the land,” and wondered if some people could even be positive.
But White had her answer.
“So many people think negatively. It’s like, ‘Oh, you know what I hate?’ Instead of, ‘All right, I”ll get through this, but you know what I love?’” White said. “Then all of a sudden you start lifting up a little bit. But, if you start with, ‘You know what I hate,’ you’re gonna go right down the tubes.”
“I know it sounds boring, but I am a positive thinker. I am a cockeyed optimist and that’s why I’ve stayed happy all my life. You’ve got it get through it. You can’t change it….”
So buckle down buttercups! Take it from one of the smartest and most optimistic Golden Girl’s around, Betty White. You can feel sorry for yourself, stay negative and probably live a short life with your ulcers and turn into an old curmudgeon OR you can be positive, optimistic, and look forward to positive change to help ‘Make America Great Again’.
It’s up to you to decide how you can make things better in your own little circle of friends. Are you going to continue to feed the liberal frenzy of negativity and hate? Or are you going to encourage a brighter, more positive tomorrow? I don’t know about you but I kinda’ like the ‘Golden Girl’ message myself?
Happy Birthday Betty White! Rock on Girlfriend! I wish more people in the world had your attitude!
