We are a long time gone once through the pearly gates and what better way to leave our mark by sending out love to all around us.
Wherever you are in the world, take a moment to look around you and see the love that is coming to you. Feel it, embrace it, want it, get it. Leave all the naysayers and simply believe in what makes you happy.
It's been 7 years since the comedy world lost a wonderful man, and very funny comic to cancer. Prior to that Dave Grant was a gifted and clever comic who poked gentle fun at himself and the world around him in such a warmhearted way that we were all swept along with his joy. He was a significant influence on who I have become as an entertainer and I treasure, each day, those years I spent sharing a room or a stage with him.
At the end of each set, he would end with
"Look after each other, brothers and sisters. That's what it's all about".
Here is a snippet of how great a comic he was
It would be nice to think that we could keep that sentiment going and extend it further each year. How wonderful would it be if we all looked at the important things like love and prioritised them over the sadder things like hate. Bringing love in has more health benefits than the alternative. Love can help us to aspire to achieve things that we never thought we could. Love will help us to accept the harshness of life and, love will guide us when we need it.
Take a moment today to love yourself and anyone you come into contact with.
Smile at your bus driver, thank your barista, and find a positive thing about a co-worker. It's all there and ready for you to find it.
the time is now
lots of love from me,
