Thought For the Day
At some point when you create yourself to make it, you’re going to have to either let that creation go and take a chance on being loved or hated for who you really are, or you’re going to have to kill who you really are and fall into your grave grasping a character you never were.
– Jim Carrey
JUST A THOUGHT After Reading the quote
My thought for today: as I read this quote today. Which phase I am in, I actually don’t know. I have realized as my journey of making my film. Taking it as far as I could. It was a struggle. Yet people assumed, said things, like how easy it is for me, how privileged I am. But nobody really saw the struggle in each step. Running around, people saying crap to me, each step was a struggle. Some helped above and beyond, and some made sure, they did nothing, except complain. But I noticed how people withdrew. I made a film from heart, never wanted to be a filmmaker, yet, i became one. My passion to act, and then being in it since 2008 starting point, my journey lead me to do things, i never expected. Some hated my guts, others believed in me, when I lost hope. Some stood strong others walked out. Making a film is just material, it does not define me. Beyond that I am human being, who was never a business person. I wanted to act, I acted. Once I took a task i delivered. Beyond a film, i am human. Never went in this field to compete but only to live my passion. In that sense, i am thankful for all the support my family/friends/acquaintances gave. I believe the people who left me were my teachers and they came as blessing to teach me harsh reality of life because being a sweet person, as I-was, I would have never been able to get this far. So thank you everyone, for my journey, love, respect, hatred. I don’t know what the future holds, but for sure it is always good to have gratitude & reflect about where life is today. Live in present, as no one has really seen the future. Life is short. Time is valuable, and never comes back, so seize the day. Peace Out.
