Everyone — regardless of age, sex, or personal views on the topic of plastic surgery — could learn something from Joan Rivers: It’s OK to laugh at yourself. 

A brilliant comedian and forward-thinker, Joan spent her career pushing the envelope- and rarely backed down or shied away from a topic. Her steadfast (sometimes brutal) honesty and her ability to never take herself too seriously are traits we admire as we reflect on her life.

In her honor, take a minute today and laugh at yourself.
