A Letter to Life

Hi Life, I’d like to write you a letter after being around a while!

Dear Life and Anyone Reading,

This is my point of view after many experiences. I hope my daughter gets to read It, she is foremost in my mind as I write.

Here is my list….

  • Always be kind
  • Say Thank you, in fact write a hand written note and say “Thank you”.  Making the effort it really does mean you are full of thanks!
  • Aim to turn left on a plane but don’t give your heart away to do it!
  • Always tip a cab driver
  • Never queue for food but always give back to others who have too
  • Always Listen
  • Learn from others who’ve been before you
  • Your heart will be broken, probably a few times, it is shit but honestly everyone in your life will have the same experience at some point.
  • Trust your heart, your head can and will be a little biased sometimes.  Your gut feeling will tell you! Follow that feeling.
  • Dreams do come true, just believe in them and never ever stop striving for them!
  • Anything is possible.
  • Loading a dishwasher is a work of art! Good luck!
  • It’s ok to cry, it really is.
  • Be honest, with others but firstly and most importantly with yourself, you’ll then find the answers!
  • Don’t take any s**t nor bullying, just smile and walk away, you are better, it’s their stuff not yours!
  • Santa is real.
  • Break the rules!
  • Skip!
  • Cheat at monopoly, then admit it!
  • Learn to trust.
  • Be trustworthy.
  • Actions speak louder than any words! In a world of Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and the rest, it’s easy to write words, be the change – Do something but do it selflessly without any return. That’s the gift.
  • You are going to get fired one day – That’s ok, learn, grow and know it’s ok.
  • Laugh, a lot.
  • Running is bloody hard work!
  • Never walk past a homeless person without giving a moment of your time to have a conversation, sometimes that’s enough.
  • Drugs are bad, they make you who you are not! Cost a fortune and will kill you in the end, if only in your spiritual soul. Trust me.
  • Always have flowers in your home.
  • Eat the cake!
  • If yu are in trouble , it’s ok, be honest, reach out and asking for help is just fine.
  • Be proud of YOU!
  • Own a pet!
  • Buy a blank canvas and paint and make your own picture. It’s yours for life.
  • Hiccups Brown bag or carrier bag, breath in and out of it for a couple of minutes, hiccups gone! Trust me on this I’ve tried everything!
  • Cereal for dinner is wholly acceptable!
  • It’s ok to struggle sometimes.
  • It’s ok to tell someone you are struggling.
  • Look out for your friends.
  • Call some one and make their day
  • Toothache is horrific!
    You are never ever going to please everyone – trust me I tried, bad bad idea, just be you. YOU are enough. YOU are YOU! Be YOU!
  • What you wear does not define YOU! I work with the biggest star in the world, he wears jeans and a jumper! Sometimes even a t shirt, Actually both with holes in, it’s not what is on the outside it’s what’s on the inside!
  • You’ll always regret the kebab!
  • Have no fear, on the other side of it is a freedom you’ll not believe! You got this!
  • If You book a holiday with wooden sunbeds you are winning !
  • Stretch your arm out, touch the wall with the tip of your fingers, take it back, rub your elbow for 2 minutes, try and touch the wall again and it won’t reach the wall! You’ll do this and you can thank me later!
  • You will never ever get the wires behind your TV neat and tidy!
  • Read a book.
  • You will be a creature of habit! Change the habit now and then!
  • Love yourself
  • Dunk a biscuit in a cuppa tea.
  • Lose your biscuit in a cuppa tea!
  • Being famous is not the greatest thing in life !
  • You only have today.
  • Forgive.
  • Laugh at yourself.
  • Dance to music on your own. Nobody’s watching!
  • The scone/scone debate will drive you mad but it’s always jam before the cream!

  • Stand up for what you believe in.
  • Hold your friends close.
  • Go to the gym, even for a look around!
  • Copy and paste!
  • Tap water is as good as any water and it’s free!
  • Treat yourself before you treat anyone else.
  • Its ok to screw up, trust me I hold the record!
  • A roof over your head, food in your mouth, heating, a tv and music is all you will ever need. But strive to be better!
  • Sometimes step back and wait and see before reacting, not everything is what it seems.
  • Hug don’t handshake. There is nothing more powerful than a hug.
  • Progression not perfection!
  • We have the power to make our day beautiful and change that of another’s. Be that change! Why? Because you can!
  • Remember your passwords!
  • Go to Vegas, the Maldives, Blackpool, Brighton, Scotland and to Ikea on a Sunday!
    Start everything from a foundation of love,

  • Go to Santorini.
  • Throw the odd socks away!
  • Smoking is not cool, will cost you a fortune and a life. Do the right thing!
  • Book a last-minute holiday.
  • A PowerPoint presentation is boring.
  • Fall asleep during the above, nobody will blame YOU!
  • Dance on a table!
  • Men – Buy the best shaver.  Ladies…it’ ours not yours!
  • Self love is everything.
  • Kindness and thoughtfulness, it’s a brilliant starting line.

Have the best day and thank you for reading.

Yes I’ve just eaten cake![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

Warm up comedian to the biggest stars and shows in the world, I've travelled the world on both private jets and ferrys! But that's not important, the importance is I've been to hell and back, faced suicide and the greatest highs in life. I am honest to my core, wear my heart on my sleeve, and not ashamed to say sometimes I struggle
