“Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them.” – Jim Carrey
Commencement. For most people it marks the end of college. The definition of commencement is actually “a beginning”. I love that. Whoever came up with the concept is a frickin’ genius in my book!
I’ve spent my downtime looking at the newest commencement speeches and found this years gem to be Jim Carrey. He speaks about going for what you want, challenging yourself and not letting the negative voices around and inside you pull you down.
