If there’s anything to be boast of, Ellen Lee DeGeneres, comedienne said hers is for her contribution in the planet; making people happy.
That’s to me the most important thing, that my hour of television is positive and upbeat and an antidote for all the negative stuff going on in life.”
Ellen, the popular American television host and writer has proven to us via her words of positivity; the value of living a worthful life.
Ellen On the importance of being kind
I learned compassion from being discriminated against. Everything bad that’s ever happened to me has taught me compassion.
When reflecting on life
Right before I decided to come out, I went on a spiritual retreat called ‘Changing the Inner Dialogue of Your Subconscious Mind.’ I’d never been to anything like it before, and all my friends were taking bets on how long I’d last with no TV, no radio, no phone. But for me that was the beginning of paying attention to all the little things.
Ellen On happiness
The thing everyone should realize is that the key to happiness is being happy for yourself and yourself.
It’s our challenges and obstacles that give us layers of depth and make us interesting. Are they fun when they happen? No. But they are what make us unique. And that’s what I know for sure… I think.
While deliberating on being grateful
Ellen talk about the big difference gratefulness makes in one’s life.
The world is full of a lot of fear and a lot of negativity, and a lot of judgment. I just think people need to start shifting into joy and happiness. As corny as it sounds, we need to make a shift.
I feel extremely lucky to have my own TV show. Every day I pinch myself because I’m sure I must be dreaming. Actually, I don’t pinch myself. It’s one of my manager’s jobs to pinch me and say, “You ain’t dreamin’, kid!” Then I pinch him, he pinches me back, and it usually ends up in a slap fight. Sometimes the slap fight lasts until midnight.
Ellen on being yourself
I had everything I’d hoped for, but I wasn’t being myself. So I decided to be honest about who I was. It was strange: The people who loved me for being funny suddenly didn’t like me for being… me.
Ellen on being an animal lover
She once declared to eat cardboard rather than go back to eating animals.
Stuffed deer heads on walls are bad enough, but it’s worse when they are wearing dark glasses, and have streamers in their antlers because then then you know they were enjoying themselves at a party when they were shot.
