Things We Saw Today: Happy Birthday Carrie Fisher. We Miss You, Space Momby.
We lost Carrie Fisher in 2016 and it is a loss that many of us who loved Carrie and her work still struggle to cope with. The actress who wrote brutally honest novels and brought Princess Leia to life in the Star Wars franchise meant the world to many fans. Years after she left us, we’re still sharing her wise words and our treasured memories of her as we celebrate her life on what would have been her 65th birthday.
Fisher was a master of inspiring people through her words, and so many took to Twitter to share quotes, pictures, clips, and more from the actress and author, holding close to her legacy and her truths.
“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.”
This is one of Carrie Fisher’s most well-known pieces of advice for good reason. I live by it. I read it every morning. pic.twitter.com/V8rdfBRc2p

Carrie Fisher is my hero and has been for as long as I can remember. Not Leia but Carrie. She was fierce, fearless, and an inspiration and I miss her every day.
