Divabetic’s fourth DIVA of Christmas is the legendary Lucille Ball. We’re hoping Lucy will help you not to see your self-care management behaviors in only ‘black or white’ (good or bad), like classic episodes of ‘I Love Lucy,’ but in a more colorful way. Judging yourself too harshly can result in abandoning critical self-care practices completely.
Black-and-white judgments may be more literal than you might expect. A new study finds that people who view information on a black-and-white background are less likely to see gray areas in challenges than those who get the information alongside other colors.
Lucille Ball is famous for saying, “I’m not funny. What I am is brave.” Paired with a touch of poise, a splash of wit and a dash of natural likability, Ball had it all. She was a comedic genius who employed both situation and vaudeville styles as well as she was a powerful, courageous off-stage lady. She was the first woman in television to be the head of a production company, Desilu. Everyone loves Lucy!
