JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 6 :: carol burnett

6 Jan


We are watching the Golden Globes tonight and I am again in awe of Carol Burnett.

As she accepted her lifetime achievement award, an award named after her, I was thinking about the trust it must have taken for her to make her mark in this world and on Hollywood.

In her own words, “I catch myself day dreaming about being young again and doing at all over, and then I bring myself up short, when I realize how incredibly fortunate I was to be there at the right time,” she shared. “Because what we did then, it couldn’t be done today.”

She was inspiring to me when I was young and watched re-runs of her comedy variety show. And she inspires me now as I better understand what it must have taken for her to achieve her dreams.

And, that, is maybe the lesson of trust for today – to believe in your dreams. 

Thanks for trusting yourself, Carol. And thanks for the laughter and tears.
