I’ve lost a few of my heroes lately. The loss of Glenn Frey from the Eagles in just the last few weeks, and this morning the announcement of the passing of Aussie Rock, TV and theatre legend, Jon English, has hit me really hard.
Both Glenn and Jon have been wonderful inspirations to me in life and I’m sure they’ll continue to give me inspiration in my own remaining days.
Glenn and Jon knew how to make people smile. They knew they could inspire happiness through their music and their message. Without doubt they’ve helped me to pursue a happy and optimistic view through my life.
The result of that is that those who know me understand i’m a big believer in having fun and sharing a smile when I can. Even when the days are dark. And for me sharing a smile or a laugh or some self deprecating humour isn’t just confined to the after hours and weekends.
I reckon that unless you’re a heart or brain surgeon or maybe an Undertaker there’s gotta be an opportunity to share a smile during every day.
I figure that if you’ve gotta be at work today, then you may as well make it fun!
I ran into this awesome guy at the Sunday morning Eagle Farm Markets in Brisbane recently. I reckon if he can have this much fun selling an avocado and some veges then there are absolutely no limits for you in your business day.
Whether you’re a rock star like Glenn and Jon or a guy selling fruit at a market, get out there and make someone smile today. You mightn’t wake up tomorrow. #ripjonenglish #ripglennfrey #ltfu
I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Jon in concert with Peter Cupples on a #Besties date with my old Mate Kathlyn Owen recently. This video i captured will always make me smile. Fast forward to 1.24 for a smile.
Rest in peace Jon.
