Comedian Jim Carrey is hoping that his new movie, “Yes Man,” will help moviegoers forget about the bad economy and other problems, and help them instead to laugh at it all. He’s right, your problems will be here whether you laugh at them or cry about them. Laughing, or at the least not crying about them, will put you in a more positive frame of mind and will draw more positive things towards you.
“This is what comedy’s about,” Carrey said. “To laugh at the pain, laugh at the confusion, whatever, I mean, you need it.
“Comedy’s always welcome, but especially in times like this. It’s like, what else do you want to do? You want to have some positive happen in your life.
Opening Friday, Carrey;s character is in the movie is a loan officer who decides to answer “yes” to any question.
“If there is a message, it’s just engage in life,” he said. “You know, say ‘Yes’ more than you do ‘No’, maybe a little bit more than you did before, and life kind of turns out all right. Usually you regret the things you say no to.”
While you obviously can’t really say yes to everything, I think we can follow Carrey’ lead in at lead trying to say yes more often. No just closes so many doors.
Engage in life. I like that.
