I have this friend, this awesome friend, and while sitting in the car driving back home, I heard that he hasn’t got that many months in this lifetime anymore. “Fuck that!!”, “Seriously?!?” were the two sentences/words that were continuously in my head. It took me a while to reach out to him, I had no freakin’ clue what to write to him. “How are you?” “What have you been up to?” all sounded really meaningless. And then I realized, he is a good friend, we are just going to catch up, and we will find out whatever we are going to talk about. We found out that we have heaps to talk about.
Most importantly though, is that this guy is my absolute example of how I want to live my life. With passion, laughter, humor, don’t take yourself to serious but take your passions serious, live through you, and most of all… love, just love. If you live through giving & receiving love, and stay true to your authentic you, nothing really matters. He doesn’t know but he was one of the reasons to quite my job. I was and am capable of far more than the office life I was living. (unfortunately me resigning was breaking a promise to him that I would become the CEO of the company I worked for). He and I go way back, we have the same humor, he slaps me in the face to provoke, I slap him back and that is even more provocative for our surroundings..Numerous parties, dressing up and my introduction to golfing with rum and apple juice. And now, I love just talking to him. Sharing my world with him, making videos of me driving around Australia so he sees where I live and what I do and the other way around. Him sharing his world that is absolutely the opposite with rain, hail, fire places, marriage and of course the fight he is battling.
Geez, man, you have no idea but you inspire me to the moon and back and that route a couple of times. I really wanted to write this as I feel that everyone should live life the way you do. You are a legend and you know who you are.
