Olitz: Devastating, Life Changing, Extraordinary Love.
"I kind of follow this Shakespeare quote: ‘to thine own self be true.’ At different stages that has been echoed through my life from mentors, therapists, and friends—they’ve all said the same thing: to thine own self be true. Chekov also has this great quote ‘if you want to work on your art, work on your life.’ I would say that’s an important idea as an artist, to make sure you follow that. For me it’s important to make sure that my life is rich, that my life is meaningful and that always makes my work more rich and meaningful. That is something that has taken me a long time to learn personally.”
Should you remember Kathryn Joosten?
What’s important isn’t The West Wing or Desperate Housewives.
Joosten didn’t start acting until she was 42.
Didn’t go to Hollywood until she was in her 50s.
Took the first role you remember her for at 59.
By the time she passed away at 72, she had two Emmys and was loved by millions.
So the next time you think you’re too old to do something big, that’s when you should remember Kathryn Joosten.
Life is never over until you take your last breath…Keep on, keeping on….Age is nothing but a number and should not be the excuse to not try to reach your dreams…..Just keep at it and never give up hope….Don’t let anybody tell you that you cannot do something…Work at it, make efforts, and you will reap the rewards even if the reward time is later than you expect….DREAM BIG!!!!!
