 “Allllllllrighty then…”

 by Elizabeth Gray
 To this day I can still remember – very vividly – contorting my mouth and reciting quote after quote from the movies, making my family endlessly laugh and beg for more…or maybe they were just patronizing me. I had one act and one act only - Ace Venture. I was a BIG fan, to put it lightly! I still am…

It is only recently that I’ve discovered Jim Carrey actually has a serious side outside of comedy. Shocking – I know! In the spirit of us entering May and knowing that graduations will be happening soon, I came across a commencement speech by Jim Carrey that is worth sharing as it applies to not only those beginning their lives and careers but those of us who sometimes get too caught up in it all.

After opening with a few ‘zingers’ (duh!) Jim Carrey continues…

“…Because life doesn’t happen to you. It happens for you. How do I know this? I don’t, but I’m making sound and that’s the important thing. That’s what I’m here to do. Sometimes I think that’s the only thing that’s important really, is just letting each other know we’re here. Reminding each other that we’re part of a larger self. I used to think Jim Carrey is all that I was. Just a flickering light, a dancing shadow. The great nothing masquerading as something you can name, seeking shelter in caves and foxholes dug out hastily. An archer searching for his target in the mirror, wounded only by my own arrows.
