Lauren Bacall has always been in my mom’s list of favorite actresses. That is how I heard of her for the first time.

The interest thing about her and many of the actresses from her time is that they were beautiful women and always given me the impression of very strong women. I think it has to do with the fact that being an actor back then had a different glamour than today. Now, it is mostly about looks (at least, that is how I see it) and much less about being. It is true that depending on what certain stars “were”, they could be doomed to (re)represent the same kind of characters over and over again.

“Here is a test to find out whether your mission in life is complete. If you’re alive, it isn’t.”
― Lauren Bacall

In addition to having an amazing career as a model and actress, she was not afraid of speaking up about her political opinion and clarifying it to those who misused her words.

“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.”
― Lauren Bacall

The path to self-discovery and awareness is not easy and in the noise of the outer world, it only gets harder. We have to fit in all the time. Who we are has become less important than who we pretend to me.

“I believe in the truth, and I believe in saying what you think. Why not? Do you have to go around whispering all the time or playing a game with people? I just don’t believe in that. So I’m not the most adored person on the face of the earth. You have to know this. There are a lot of people who don’t like me at all, I’m very sure of that. But I wasn’t put on earth to be liked. I have my own reasons for being and my own sense of what is important and what isn’t, and I’m not going to change that.”
― Lauren Bacall

Having face the disease of her first husband, Humphrey Bogart, she never played victim and even avoided talking about the subject.

Today is what should keep us busy. The future is the result of our actions and thoughts now. Only fantasizing about it does not make any difference. It all takes action. Action that must happen in this very moment. While the past, no matter how hard or beautiful it might have been, it is gone.

“You can’t start worrying about what’s going to happen. You get spastic enough worrying about what’s happening now.”
― Lauren Bacall

When adversities hit us (and I can tell you one thing or two about it), we have to fight back. Maybe the results are not going to be in our favor, but giving up will consume as much energy anyways. So why not raising our heads up high and keeping on moving.

"You don't always win your battles, but it's good to know you fought." - Lauren Bacall

We cannot solve all the problems of the world our own. Let’s face it: we can barely deal with all the things we have in our plate. While she should not stop caring (it would be denying our humanity), we have to stay strong.

The news are full of hate and pain. It is almost like there were forces pushing us to give up hope. We need to cultivate a strong mind if we want to evolve without losing our souls.

“Half of life’s problems disappear when one’s head is healthy.”
― Lauren Bacall, By Myself and Then Some

We are who we are. We were built experience after experience, thought after thought, feeling after feeling. Everything is there. We expose ourselves and show our essence when we smile, cry; speak and silent. It does not take much for a person truly interested to realize what is going on. It is all there, right in front of their eyes.
