I just hopped of Face Book, in attempt to do a whirl wind catch up with what is going on, in the lives of my many gorgeous friends around the globe and quite literally there have been births, marriages, canyon climbs, Sophie Monk and Marti Keefer Lynx adds going viral (which is hilarious by the way) and just such great vibrancy snapped in a few little, inspiring, available moments, all at my finger tips .
I then took some time to read the worldwide news and again whilst only the summaries, I closed the screen humbled by how ridiculously lucky I am, to have my little life and all the wonderful people, you ALL included, adding to my world on a daily basis.
I have received SO MANY bloody incredible messages, just an extraordinary response and a HUGE wave of support making its way around the world, willing this documentary to be brought to life and supporting me in my approach to moving on.
But to all you, who have been inspired, moved and in someway compelled to do something, be sure that you recognize what it is that is driving you to passionately get behind this project. Is it your compassion for people you are moved by? Is it that you feel a connection with Andy for one reason or another? Is it your frustration and perhaps own personal painful experience with the disease? Or is it that you feel a sense of wholeness by being involved in something meaningful, that you know in your gut WILL make a difference?
Whatever it is, harness it and remember to keep using it from this point forward. We were very, very lucky to have the resources and people behind us to follow our journey and however hard it may have been and yes ultimately, we lost a very beautiful man, we where and are, remarkably blessed compared to the masses of children, men and woman living and dying, every minute of everyday, around the world, with no one to share their stories.
It is imperative that we consistently take the time to explore where else we can make a difference. I hope that, as it has for me, Andy’s journey will inspire you to realise that collectively when you get behind something meaningful, GREAT things can happen.
