Brigitte Bardot, a cool kitten looking for a bird

In this exact moment in time, the world is blinded by fear, uncertainty, and loss. With an uncertain economy, fear of sickness and death looming, and worldwide restrictions, we are all faced with meeting our own personal challenges and fears. Bad things may be happening around us, so let's go to the past and to the happy times...let's relive some of those golden years and escape reality even if it's just for the length of this gallery.

We tend to look back on the past with rose tinted glasses. The reason the future and the present moment can feel uncomfortable at times like these is due to uncertainty...we just don't know if that outcome is going to provide us what we need to feel safe, secure, and happy.

The beautiful thing about revisiting history is it gives us the power of hindsight...we know what happens then, so it's safe and comfortable. And the memories that those moments in history provide us actually can help us shift how we feel in the present moment, which is the only thing that can shift how our future unfolds.

So let's take a look back on the groovy past, forget the uncertainty of today, and find serenity in the fact that no matter what has happened in the past, that we have always survived, grown stronger, and wiser because of it.

Brigitte Bardot was more than just a model or an actress in her heyday, she was like a mythological creature. However, she gave up fame because she couldn’t stand being the object of desire by the public and the media.

In her memoir she writes that the nature of celebrity destroys people and that’s exactly why she quit acting. She writes:

I know what it feels like to be hunted… The majority of great actresses met tragic ends. When I said goodbye to this job, to this life of opulence and glitter, images and adoration, the quest to be desired, I was saving my life. This worship of celebrity … suffocated me.
