"Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet."
In the acting industry, there's a commonly used tongue-in-cheek phrase: "Hurry up and wait."
The humor behind it aside, it means that you often have to hustle as hard as possible, only to find that the fruits of your labor take a long time to bear.
As you all know, I almost always post an Instagram story when I am on my way to an audition. And in response, many of you DM me and ask me if I got the part. Well, it's very unlikely for me to know so soon after an audition, but I appreciate you asking regardless.
Unfortunately though, the nature of this business is that it takes a lot of time to see returns on all your hard work. And for a person like me (patience has never been my strong suit), it can be trying at times.
But day in and day out, I am reenergized by having you guys behind me. It may not be easy and the returns on investment may not be immediate, but it is all worth it at the end of the day because I have such strong support behind me. Your positivity, kind words, and encouragement always remind me why I am doing this and that I am happy to be taking this journey with you. Let's accomplish something great. And let's do it together!
