Lauren Bacall leaves fortune to children — $10K for beloved dog

So before this art auction and sale of her apartment (IF they sell it), that’s

  1. roughly $9 million to each of her kids
  2. $500, 000 to her two youngest grandsons for college (*assumably* she paid for her other 3 grandkids college’s as well)
  3. $35,000 to her staff
  4. $10,000 to youngest son Sam for Sophie, her beloved dog

I think we all can agree, that if every single one of us tries to be a bit like Betty Bacall, be as strong as she was, we all will be better people. Her strength should be an inspiration to every girl/ woman.

“I´m not ashamed of what I am—of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don´t like everything I know about myself, and I´ll never be satisfied, but nobody´s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me —what they will hold—but I´m open to suggestions.”

Anonymous: did you ever send Lauren Queencall fan mail

classicmoviegal:

oh my God i can barely type this without crying.

Yes I did, and I never got a response.  I know that she always signs and even the doorman at her building told me she does.  So I must have caught her at a bad time.

And I’ll never forgive myself for not sending another sooner

I wrote her too-twice. Once at a NYC address and another at an address in CA. Never heard back either time. From what I’ve seen on the imdb boards, she would write back to fans, sending autographs.

21 Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You're Depressed.

A while ago, I penned a fairly angry response to something circulating on the internet – the 21 Habits of Happy People. It pissed me off beyond belief, that there was an inference that if you weren’t Happy, you simply weren’t doing the right things.

I’ve had depression…

Long post is long, but worth reading.
